It made me cry

Wrong Bet aka Lionheart  Well, I wasn’t expecting such a dramatic movie, but this one really made me cry, especially at the ending scene. The movie begins in Djibouti, where a legionary camp is placed. The casting is wisely done. Especially the guys which were following Lion in US. Deborah Rennard is very cool. I think she deserved better in Hollywood. Harrison Page perfectly fits in his role. And Van Damme… Maybe he should have made more drama movies, he proved he is good at it. You should have this on, if you are a fan of Van Damme, I think it is his best movie, even better than Bloodsport. Well we’re expecting more drama movies from Van Damme.

One of Van Damme’s better, more human films…..

This is one of the few films by Van Damme that stand out in my mind when I think of his ‘career highlights’. All of his films are formulaic actioners, but Lionheart is one of his better films. His character is more layered here, which makes this more of a drama than most of his others. We as the audience can feel for his character and, as a result, root for him as he tries to evade his past and help what family he has left. A nice little action film, with Van Damme forced to act a little here. For his capabilities, he is convincing as Lyon. Harrison Page is very good in the film as the ex-street fighter turned confidant, and almost steals the show. A highlight of Van Damme’s career.
