Movie Reviews

“Literal weight is the only kind offered by this slight film, another disposable Euro import upholding Netflix’s reluctant reputation as a digital direct-to-video bin.” Charles Bramesco: AV Club 

“While I enjoyed Van Damme’s action-comic turn, the rest of the film’s cartoonish vibes and mind-numbing supporting characters are too much for even ‘The Last Mercenary’ to bear (…) Rating: ??½ (out of 5)” M.N. Miller: Ready Steady Cut 

“[It] is bloated and sentimental. The middle section droops and not all the performances pop (…) But the fight scenes have wit and Van Damme delivers his lines with just the right amount of weary good humor.” Jeannette Catsoulis: The New York Times 

Release Date

July 30, 2021.
