    Better Than The Cover Suggests

    I found a copy of ''Replicant'' used for sale at a video store for only three dollars. After reading so many negavtive reviews about this Van Damme flick, I was hesitant to buy it even at this price. However, when I took it home and watched it, I was pleasantly suprised. With his 2nd teaming with director Ringo Lam (''Maximum Risk''), Van Damme's portrayal of both a serial killer and his replicant clone was very entertaining. The action scenes exceeded most I have seen in straight-to-video movies, with many harrowing escapes and plenty of carnage. The ambulance scene in the parking garage is worth the price of admission on its own. Van Damme is especially effective as the naive replicant, and lended to its viewers some genuine laughs as he was introduced to commmon day situations for us, yet new to him. You can't go wrong by adding this Van Damme vehicle to your collection, and it will fit very nicely next to his other efforts in years past. Enjoy!
