Jean-Claude Van Damme,

Next movie in which Jean-Claude Van Damme was going to star in after Double Team (1997) was an action horror Abominable, which was described as "Predator (1987) in a snow", in which his character would have to save group of people lost in snowy mountains from abominable snowman. Between 1995 and 2000, directors Peter Hyams and Renny Harlin were involved in the project, but due to poor box office results of Van Damme's films, Universal studio cancelled Abominable project. Despite many rumors, 2006 Bigfoot horror Abominable was not based on that cancelled Van Damme movie. See more »
There is no cross marker next to the mine when Yaz accidentally steps on it. A second later there is a cross marker next to it and his foot. See more »
A lot of people seem to forget that Van Damme isn't trying to make a really great movie. He doesn't usually care about the plot or the acting. He wants to make an action movie. That is the only reason I ever watch his movies and he never fails to deliver, including in this movie. Sure you cringe at the corny acting and dialogue when it happens, but the action sequences totally make up for it. I also enjoy when a movie doesn't take place in the US or Canada. I'm just bored with that. In this movie they go to Antwerp and Rome. Very cool settings for the movie. Over all I was quite pleased. The director, Tsui Hark (I have NO idea how you pronounce that), is always quite reliable in making a good action movie. It was just a good action movie, people. Don't look at it for more than what it was.
