Dolores Barclay Associated Press Lawrence of Arabia it ain't. But who cares? The fighting is great, the action nonstop and this guy has killer legs from hell that can drop a 500-pound ninja before he can say Bruce Lee. Feb 19, 2020 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: C+ Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Kathleen Maher Austin Chronicle Rated: 0/5 May 20, 2006 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Double Impact is three minutes away from two hours, much too long for its genre, but it will indisputably have an audience. [Full review in Spanish] Dec 9, 2022 Full Review Nick Rogers Midwest Film Journal Some slickly commendable action sequences and a great final fight between Jean-Claude van Damme and Bolo Yeung. But this often feels like it's eight hours long. Don't let that deter you from one of the year's finest making-of documentaries, though. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 1, 2019 Full Review Ed Travis Cinapse The film is a brisk 110 minutes long. If you tabulate all of the awesomery that occurs during that runtime, Double Impact's excellence simply cannot be disproven. Jun 22, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

Howard H Good enough for a film starring Dam expected to play both lead roles. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review Michael W This martial arts movie was pretty good. Jean-Claude Van Damme, Geoffrey Lewis, Alonna Shaw, Philip Chan, Bolo Yeung, Alan Scarfe, and the rest of the cast did a pretty good job in this movie. The plot of the movie was action-packed and entertaining. It's about getting over your differences to fight together and take down the people that killed your parents. If you haven't seen this movie yet, you might enjoy it. It wasn't as great as I thought, but it wasn't terrible. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/09/24 Full Review Gill S For the most part forgettable, but still a decent action film. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 11/17/23 Full Review Priscilla T I laughed so hard at all the plot holes and just all around ridiculousness of the interactions. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/02/23 Full Review William D Amazing movie. Everyone should watch this movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/23/23 Full Review william d One of Jean-Claude Van Damme best films. Everyone should watch this movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
