The Order (2001)

Dumb fun from Sheldon Double Impact Lettich in which Van Damme travels to Israel to recover his kidnapped father, an archaeologist whose discovery of an ancient map of Jerusalem attracts attention from a group of religious extremists known as ‘the Order’. Despite the tall tale, this is lighthearted throughout, and works all the better for it. Van Damme has perfected his cheeky rogue persona and hones up on his martial arts skills in a stocky bulk of action scenes, all of which make great use of the film’s middle eastern locations. And to prove the film’s comedy merit, there are even a few outtakes chucked in at the end. But don’t be fooled by Heston’s credit, his role is laughable brief.
