Replicant is one of the best films by Van damme, Ringo Lam has done a great job with this picture. Van Damme plays the retarded replicant, and the serial killer Torch. I have never seen anyone play retarded better then Van damme in this film. The fun is that the retard can figth. how anyone can dislike this film i really don`t understand. It don`t get better than this. i know what your thinking... he`s just a stupid die hard van damme fan... yes i am.
great action flick (by dunny)
Van Damme is in top form in this action film, boasting more action then all of Jet Lis Hollywood offerings it makes me wonder why this never hit the pictures in the UK! Van Damme plays two roles again! but this time one of them is a serial killer! The action is good, the story is good, the movie is good....watch it!
Do You Want To Know If I Recommend It, You Bet! And Here's Why- (by md581)
Who knew, who knew? I thought I be watching another lameass action flick. I'd pretty much come to the conclusion that only 1 or 2 if we're lucky good action flicks, with engaging action choreography, and most important credibility would come out a year, and that the rest would be paint by numbers cliche ridden piles of hob glob, with the story used only to set up the next bland exhausting action sequence, with MTV cuts to make up for zero choreography. So I was pleasantly suprised that I didn't have to add this one to that list. Definitely Jean Claude Van Dammes darkest film <more>
outing to date, a movie featuring two monsters one a master the other a monster in training, moonlighting as a hero.This film is well put together and as such flows very well, with nothing seeming out of place or lacking, it builds to it's conclusion with great competence, and as such holds your interest while making you feel like the ticket you bought was not wasted money, so you leave well satisfied.
Replicant 2001 is the movie that proves Jean-Claude Van Damme has the potential to become an actor. Given the budget and actors that Ringo Lam had to work with, he made a truly watchable JCVD movie. Ringo Lam's tight direction and gritty, bone crunching fights make this one a must see. JCVD is great in the dual roles. First, a psychotic murderer with a serious Norman Bates' jones and second as a simple, child-like man that has the potential to become like the original. Michael Rooker does a fine job as the reluctant Replicant's protector. If this film was in the hands of a <more>
lesser director, the end results could have been calamitous. But in the capable hands of Ringo Lam, it's a good movie. Not great mind you but a good, watchable and entertaining film.Recommended
Good action sci-fi B movie that did a good job with the low budget given the film makers.The story moves along and delivers the promised plot of evil versus good clone brothers.Has some New Age spiritual science here in the story as well regarding good and evil spirits residing in material bodies.Keeps the audience mentally stimulated besides good old shoot em ups and Martial Arts.Van Damme's acting is improving as he gets older and it shows here.Has some more of the "Van Damme with prostitute" inside jokes that are hilarious to those who follow Van Damme's personal tabloid <more>
stories.Do't expect the fanciest Martial Art moves here as it is mostly kept very basic in that area.This movie offers more acting and serial killer thrills than the usual mindless action B movie fare.Only for B movie action sci-fi fans and big fans of Van Damme......
This film is his lastest and is the greatest. he stars a killer and a genetic double, this film has everything anyone wants out of a film. Has hardcore action scenes and some sentimental moments which makes this film the best van damme film and his acting is actually good! I haven't even previewed this film and i bought it. Thats right this movie kicks!
as a retired Van Damme fan, I was actually really surprised. (by Aylmer)
I used to be Jean-Claude Van Damme's biggest fan back when I was 13 or so, having seen HARD TARGET on video and then watching every subsequent Van Damme movie up to MAXIMUM RISK which for some reason I just didn't feel like watching . As it would turn out, I didn't end up seeing any more of his work for the next five years or so, half because it just sounded awful UNIVERSAL SOLDIER 2 and half because it didn't make it to the theater. Now I'm in video stores all the time seeing flicks like LEGIONNAIRE, DERAILED, and DESERT HEAT, wondering "when did that come <more>
out?". They just seem to spring up without warning. REPLICANT was one of those, and I laughed when I first saw the poster in a video store, immediately assuming it was just some awful BLADE RUNNER rip-off.That said, I finally broke down after two years and rented it based on all the positive stuff I've heard, and I'll say I'll have to go with the flow on this one - it's surprisingly good! Van Damme looks a bit older but he's still in great shape and has more energy than your typical 14-year-old. The problem was that his acting has usually been so stiff that it's hard to root for him as the good guy watching SUDDEN DEATH I actually was hoping the bad guys would win - not the case with this movie.No, believe it or not, Van Damme actually displays an amazing, intriguing, and very believable performance or is it one? playing the moronic and childish clone. Michael Rooker, the other reason I broke down and rented this movie, has some really great scenes like when he gets so angered by a call from the psycho-killer that he throws the phone on the ground and smashes it into a million pieces. Rooker also looks a great deal younger and in better shape than in THE REPLACEMENT KILLERS or THE BONE COLLECTOR, playing a more youthfully-minded loner as opposed to a tired old sheriff or something. While this film has a really familiar concept, a lot of those "oh god that's dumb!" moments, and some pretty unmotivated fight scenes why have the scene where he beats up all the government types in the abandoned building - why were they even there in the first place? , it's really good considering they had a great deal less than $10 million to make this movie, about half of what it would cost to even hire Schwarzenegger to do a film. Take this movie and the extremely similar THE 6TH DAY and run them side by side, and it's almost sad how much better Van Damme's acting is, how much better the cloning concept is handled, and how surprisingly "fresh" everything seems.Van Damme really does a good job and actually made me care about his character the clone one, anyway . The best scenes in the movie though have to be Van Damme as the evil twin cutting a swarth of destruction around the city - like kicking old ladies, shooting corpses, or my favorite when he shoots the driver of a stopped car he's running past in an intersection FOR NO REASON! If actions spoke louder than words, Jean-Claude would have at least one Academy Award.Well worth a rental for anyone actually interested in this movie enough to find themselves reading this.
Unlike Seagal's crop of DTV crud, Van Damme has been making a very strong effort to make his releases better. "Replicant" is one of them. This is the fourth movie that Van Damme has been in where he plays two people. See also: "Double Impact", "Maximum Risk", and "Timecop" I wonder if that's in his contract. The plot is: A serial killer named "The Torch" Van Damme is on the loose. Rogue cop Jake Riley Rooker has to stop him. When "Torch" leaves one of his strands of hair at the crime scene, the idea is to clone him and <more>
stop him.Van Damme plays the clone like a baby. He has to learn to speak, walk and fight. It's a very good performance. Michael Rooker puts in his usual gruff performance. Ringo Lam directs the action scenes with a lot of style and energy. The climatic fight between both clones is fun but we've seen it before."Replicant" is definitely worth seeing. The fans will enjoy it and non-fans I think will be surprised by Van Damme's performance.For more insanity, please visit comeuppancereviews.com
When i watched the film for the first time i was impressed. It has a simple but effective story with some decent action and some one liners which you expect for a Van Damme vehicle. If this film would have been brought out about 10years ago when Van Damme was at the peak of his success then this would have been a hit. Unfortunately for him back then he went off the rails and made some pretty poor movies, but if his keeps this form up then he make get a second chance to make it big again.
