Double Impact (1991)

Egos run wild as Van Damme is given a double dosage in this enjoyable thriller. Its one of his better outings, broadening his thespian range at the same time as stylishly kicking people in the head. He plays twin brothers separated at birth and reunited after 25 years. One’s a camp American aerobics instructor who wears silk underwear; the other is a tough, cigar-chomping gangster raised in Hong Kong. Their parents were killed when they were babies and now they reunite to take revenge. It’s laughable enough – just as it should be – not to mention violent as hell, with the punishing Bolo Yeung playing the villain and demanding the best balletic slow-motion split-kicks from its star.
