He just happens to be on friendly terms with an order of monks whose subterranean database can track down missing persons. Home for Agents Having retired 3 years earlier counter-terrorist Jack Quinn is lured back in to action when his nemesis Stavros returns to cause the agency a ton of problems. Double Team attracted many negative reviews, holding a current score of 11% on review aggregation site. Rodman comes to the rescue. He seems at home on the screen. In addition, the film's plot and production was attacked by several reviewers for being unimaginative and impassive. But as I said there is comedy as well, all tongue in cheek humour as we have purposefully corny dialogue and plenty of face pulling.
Thanks to assistance from a nurse, Quinn locates Stavros and the baby in an explosives-rigged Roman amphitheater. Stavros works for any government willing to offer him sufficient financial incentive. The trail leads to Rome. Meanwhile, Kathryn receives a call from an art gallery in telling her that they would like to display her sculptures and that they will fly her out immediately. Quinn, his son and Yaz run as Stavros is charged by the tiger and takes his foot off the mine, a chain reaction rips the amphitheater apart and Yaz is able to shield his friends from the ensuing blast by sheltering under a vending machine.
Stavros and the tiger are killed in the blast. His career has remained inconsistent in terms of success. Van Damme is joined by Rodman. The only trouble is that Stavros knows that Quinn is not dead and so Quinn must come up with a way to escape. Using the prescription bottle and with Yaz's help, Quinn is able to track down the hospital where he finds Kathryn but discovers that Stavros has taken his son. Criticism was not, however, universally negative.
Quinn goes to Yaz, the only man who can help him, pleading for assistance in return for access to bank accounts. And we want him alive. His best roles have remained the mindless action flicks, where there wasn't much of the story to follow. Meanwhile, Kathryn is transported to hospital where she gives birth. . Aiding Quinn in his rescue is his flamboyant weapons dealer Yaz. Yaz is based in or near Antwerp, Belgium, and boasts that he stocks military hardware so new that even he does not know he has it.
This film received negative reviews and was a. When they arrive in Rome, Yaz learns that Quinn's wife is pregnant after Stavros delivers a of the baby to the given rendezvous. When she arrives, Stavros kidnaps her. He looks like he's having fun, and that's crucial for a movie actor. Van Damme plays counter-terrorist agent Jack Quinn, who is assigned to bring an elusive terrorist known as Stavros to justice. But the best performance comes from Mickey Rourke, well at least when it comes to playing a character he does make Stavros a stereotypical bad guy with more than one dimension. Oh, he's the weirdest looking, all right.
The occupants of the Colony are expected to help analyse terrorist threats and have to register themselves present every day using a fingerprint scanner. Things become personal when Stavros kidnaps Quinn's pregnant wife after his own lover and child were killed in an assassination attempt that went awry. Quinn is reluctant to return to duty but agrees after the same representative is killed by Stavros shortly after the meeting with Quinn. There is of course the flamboyant Dennis Rodman who in revealing clothes is a comical site right from the moment we meet him. In the early 80s, he moved to United States to make a career in American action films. And that really starts with the amusement park bloodbath as we have guns being shot from all angles whilst Van Damme twists, turns, flips and jumps his way around the place whilst dispatching a bad guy or two with a fancy break dance inspired kick. He undertakes a personal against Quinn, blaming Quinn for the death of his son.
But consider what Mickey Rourke's villain does: Burning for vengeance on , he captures Van Damme's newborn son and puts the tot in the center of the Roman Coliseum, surrounded by land mines and threatened by a prowling tiger. He does a splendid job of playing a character who seems in every respect to be Dennis Rodman. It will give you some notion of this movie's strangeness if I tell you that does not play the most peculiar character. Stavros leaves Quinn in the middle of a minefield with his son and then unleashes a tiger. The movie is a typical international action thriller, with as little dialogue as possible to make dubbing easier. At the start of the film, he is implicated in the theft of plutonium from a base with the suggestion being that he intended to sell it to.
The best defense is a strong offense. Meanwhile, Stavros kidnaps Van Damme's wife, and sets a trap for him involving a bomb disguised as a baby. Quinn wakes up on 'The Colony', an inescapable, invisible penal institution island for secret agents. Jean-Claude Van Damme, commonly known as Van Damme, is one of the most famous action icons. Quinn devises a system to fool the fingerprint scanner and is able to leave the island by attaching himself to cargo due to be extracted from the island from the air.
We've got a Delta team prepped and waiting for you at Antwerp. That's always a better role than the best friend. But things don't go well for Quinn when after heading to Antwerp to buy weapons from Yaz Dennis Rodman a confrontation with Stavros in an amusement not only sees Stavros's young son killed but Quinn seriously injured. They jump from a plane without parachutes and land inside a giant basketball, although I'm none too clear about how it inflated around them. The soundtrack includes songs by Joey Schwartz, Leareo Gianferrari and featuring Dennis Rodman.
Whilst analysing information received from a terrorist bombing, Quinn picks up a message from Stavros telling him that Stavros has captured Kathryn and so Quinn realises he must escape the Colony if he is to save her. Face it, Jack--you can't retire until he dies. It is all seriously over the top but a lot of fun with things culminating in a maternity ward, how a maternity ward is that close to an amusement park is beyond me but it is shall we say explosive. The structure is simple: Setup scene, action, stunts, next setup, etc. But this is rubbish: an incoherent -ish yarn distinguished only by its formal decadence and the presence of basketball's Dennis Rodman. Scribbling madly in the dark, I got down the highlights of his briefing. Yaz arrives on a motorbike and is able to snatch the baby, leaving Quinn to escape from the tiger and go after Stavros.
