Description du produit
Die Zwillingsbrüder Alex und Chad sind noch Babies, als ihre Eltern in Hongkong brutal ermordet werden. Alex kommt ins Waisenhaus, Chad zu Pflegeeltern. 25 Jahre später treffen sich die Beiden wieder. Und sie haben nur ein Ziel: Rache! Ein gnadenloser Kampf gegen die Hongkong-Mafia beginnt. Ein Duell auf Leben und Tod!
In seguito a torbidi conflitti d'interesse sulla costruzione d'un ponte che collega la parte insulare di Hong Kong al continente, l'industriale Paul Wagner viene barbaramente assassinato con la moglie. Il suo fedele amico, Frank Avery, pur ferito, riesce a salvare uno dei due figli gemelli dell'ucciso. Mentre l'altro, Alex, viene affidato dalla governante ad un asilo di suore, Chad seguirà Frank in America. Divenuto adulto ed istruttore di karate, viene messo al corrente da Frank, che egli crede suo zio, del sopruso patito. I due partono così per Hong Kong, dove ritrovano Alex, che traffica in auto di lusso e gli rivelano la sua identità. I tre ingaggiano quindi una lotta senza quartiere contro Nigel Griffith, ex socio del padre e mandante del delitto, ed il capo della mafia locale Raymond Zhang, i cui scherani hanno ucciso i genitori dei gemelli. Frattanto la bionda fidanzata di Alex, Danielle, che lavora per Griffith, deve, con molti rischi, scoprire i documenti che accusano il suo datore di lavoro. Isolatisi in una baia fuori mano i tre, con due azioni notturne, fanno saltare la raffineria di Griffith e il club dove Zhang e Griffith si incontrano. Scoperto il nascondiglio dei gemelli, Zhang fa rapire Danielle e Frank e li imprigiona in una nave alla fonda dove attira i due fratelli per eliminarli, ma dopo un rocambolesco scontro, costoro hanno la meglio e vendicano la morte dei genitori uccidendo Griffith e Zhang. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Vous le savez, je suis collectionneur, qui remplace ces anciennes K7 vidéo.
Donc, mon avis n'a que peu d'importance !
Un bon DVD classique de JCVD, avec un bonne histoire plutôt sympa !
Pour un prix juste

What this film did right was the inclusion of multiple villains, necessary not only because there are two Van Dammes, but because all of the classic martial arts films involved many enemies as well. Recurring VD villains include Peter Malota (the Spanish fighter in later film "The Quest"), whose blue-lit kickboxing scene with Jean-Claude is one of the best in recent memory, and famed "Enter The Dragon" baddie (and longtime martial arts staple) Bolo Yeung.
It helps that Van Damme also has veteran character actor Geoffrey Lewis on board; that kind of gruff, Sam Elliott presence makes up for a lot of acting acumen that is lacking in the rest of the cast. Peter Scarfe stars as the embodiment of evil, and Alonna Shaw as the embodiment.
The pacing is good; the script has some howlers, and the shooting locations are to die for. Look for a very early cameo by Julie Strain!
For this blu-ray edition, I was quite pleasantly surprised by the video quality for such an old, for-fans-only, title. Picture is sharp as all h-e-double hockey sticks, with very vibrant colors, punchy contrast, and pretty good detail. I only wish it had true 5.1 sound, but luckily my HT receiver decoded it using Neo 6, which makes good use of my surround setup despite the disc's advertised 2.0 audio. Specs aside, it sounds fine.
Van Damme/Double Impact fans rejoice!
1.Who is he? He's two guys! Identical twins separated at birth by the Chinese mafia, one, Chad, is a silk underwear-wearing pretty boy from Los Angeles, and the other, Alex, is a criminal from Hong Kong. Amazingly, they both grew up to be martial arts experts.
2.Which family member/friend must be avenged? Their parents are murdered by the same Chinese mafia
3.Does he take his shirt off? Bolo Yeung rips Chad's shirt off during a fight sequence
4.Does he have sex with a C-List actress? Yes. Actually, his sex scene with the beautiful Alonna Shaw is worthy of late-night skinemax fame.
5.Is there a tournament? Sadly, no.
6.Is training needed for this tournament? Perhaps some firearms training should have taken place, but aside from that, no.
7.Does he do the splits in training or in the tournament? When teaching/training a class for aerobics, or something, he dons some spandex and displays the goods for the ladies. He tells them that the splits are easy because of his big legs and karate.
8.Does he punch someone in the balls? Yes, Chad jab-kicked Bolo Yeung in the jewels during the final fight - which was clearly revenge for the nut-chop Bolo delivered to Chad's family jewels earlier in the movie.
9.Does he do a series of flying or 360 kicks? Let's just say that he can use the marks on Bolo Yeung's jawline for his next boot fitting
10.Is his enemy unbeatable? It's Peter Malota and Bolo Yeung. Plus, Bolo has a glass eye, and a career record of 0-1 previous to this movie. So, challenging? Yes. Unbeatable? Probably not.
11.Does he overcome an injury or other hindrance? Not only does he have to battle Peter Malota, Bolo Yeung, Cory Everson, and poor night-vision, but during one fight scene Donkey Kong apparently begins to throw barrels at Chad.
12.Does he win? Without the help of electricity, I have no doubt Bolo Yeung would have won. However, JCVDx2 manages to avenge their parents and claim their stole inheritance by taking down the entire Chinese syndicate.
So, this one goes slightly outside the typical JCVD flick, but the overall impression is positive. In spite of himself, he actually portrays a bad guy or a hardened criminal fairly well. I especially appreciated perhaps the best snot-rocket scene in cinema history - the lighting is stupendous. Ignoring the whole JCVD angle, this one is actually a decent movie with some rather funny dialogue with several gratuitous F-bombs.
