One of Van Damme's most enjoyable films in years. (by furiousneon)
There is nothing perfect about this movie, but for what it is, it sure the hell is enjoyable. Van Damme just gets better and better in the acting department and pleases everyone in this one, new fans and old ones. The action scenes are way better then in Second In Command and much more martial arts oriented then Wake of Death, with some more trademark kicks. Vivica A. Fox is sexy and perfect for her role and the story involving a former heavyweight champ who needs security from a rap-mogul/gangster is very fresh considering its new territory for a Van Damme movie. Anyway fan of his or not, I <more>
A very good movie! Van Damme is back!!! (by KurtSloane-1)
The Hard Corps is a very good movie, with a great cast and script. The story is very interesting and Van Damme proves another time, that he is a great actor and fighter. He is in a very good shape in this film and Sheldon Lettich did a great job. The fight scenes are really nice, Van Damme is fighting like a 10 years ago.In my opinion, "In Hell", "Wake of Death", "Second in Command" and "The Hard Corps" were 4 great films. Van Damme is getting back and nobody can stop him now! And now I'm waiting for Til Death and Bloodsport 2. 8/10.
Van Damme + Letich Fantastic Boom (by farooqnk)
This film is so far the best in all direct to DVD releases of Van Damme. Jean Claude Van Damme looks very fresh and fit.The most important thing about the movie is its tempo which never makes you bored. Every moment of this film is enjoyable specially if you watch it with your friends. There are not too many explosions or car chases as usually action films are supposed to have. The Dog scene was traffic in which DOGS are hungry for fresh meat and that was also in the last scene which was perfectly filmed by Sheldon I like it too much.The part in which Jc and his partner are coaching the hard <more>
corps team is also very unique concept. Every body must watch this movie and specially anti jcvd's they will shut their mouth after watching this movie.
A step above generic and a LOT better than Second In Command (by IceSkateUpHill)
The plot is simple, a soldier returning from Afhganistan becomes a body guard for a well known boxer who is loved by the community he restored, and hated by the man he put behind bars.It begins typically with plot development and whatnot but where other straight to video movies fail this one succeeds, if you give the movie a chance you will feel the difference between this and anything else that has been released recently. The plot has more to it, the action pieces deliver what is expected but it is entertaining none the less and the humor and rap beats thrown in add what is needed to make <more>
this movie more entertaining than what i was expecting. treat yourself and get a hold of this for lazy nights where you just want to kick back and see Jean Claude do his best.
Van Damme Seems To Be Working On His Acting Than Martial Arts (by vhs1999)
This movie was a good flick and one to be proud of it was an unusual role for van damme to play. He seemed to be more interested in the story of the movie than the movie itself and we have seen less martial arts of his later films. If you watch second in command and wake of death you will notice that he truly wants to be an actor now then a martial artist. This movie should have got a cinema release it was that good maybe this might be a new start to an old genre of films this movie will be one for my collection along with hard target maximum risk and the order.So for those those who want to <more>
see this movie go get it out from your local rental store its great. I will look forward to van damme's next flick.
A very underrated direct to video solid Van Damme action flick! (by ivo-cobra8)
Disclaimer: If you are a viewer that mainly prefers art-house-type movies, then you might as well ignore this review. In addition, if you're not able to take a Van Damme underrated, a solid good action flick from Sheldon Lettich, ignore this review, as well. We'll both be better off.The Hard Corps 2006 is another solid underrated action flick from Van Damme that I like! I like this movie for what it is! Again folks this is what I was talking about: Steven Seagal's The Keeper 2009 ripped off and stole the idea from this movie! Steven Seagal can not be original, he is a fake, <more>
fat actor that I hate! The Keeper 2009 sucked ass! Manny people put my review down, because that I have stated that it suck. Watching The Hard Corps I was very surprised because I love Van Damme and idea from an American soldier who fought in Iraq must assembles a team of bodyguards to protect a former boxer and his sister. I already saw the idea from Seagal in The Keeper! In The Keeper 2009 Seagal is an L.A. Cop who is forced to retire from his duty's as a cop and he fly's to San Antonio helping and been a bodyguard of the daughter of a wealthy businessman his best friend and her boxer boyfriend. The same story that was ripped off from this movie The Hard Corps 2006 , just the keeper made a lousy job, making an awful not entertaining movie that I just hate! After reading some reviews I see a lot of people hate this movie I don't! I think is an underrated, a good action movie from Van Damme and Sheldon Lettich! I know this movie is not a brutal, or violent like was Wake of Death 2004 , but I still don't think it is a bad movie. Razaaq Adoti who plays Wayne Barclay a retired ex world champion boxer, he at least was a boxer in this movie and he kicked and fight with Van Damme, he wasn't a chicken, like Arron Shiver was, who played Mason Silver a boxer, Nikita's boyfriend, who soled her out and was a drug addicted. Sorry but I like The Hard Corps, I know is not that good, but Is still a good direct to video movie. At least I could know what the story is in this movie! Army veteran Philippe Sauvage Jean-Claude Van Damme assembles a team of bodyguards to protect former boxer Wayne Barclay Razaaq Adoti . Complications arise when the boxer suspects his sister Tamara Barclay Vivica A. Fox may be romantically involved with the bodyguard.The story is straight forward with JCVD protecting a former boxer from an ex convict the boxer helped put behind bars. But the film rounds out a number of characters, including a straight-arrow nephew of the bad guy, and members of Jean Claude's group of bodyguards he calls "The Hard Corps". There are some neat character moments, like one of the Hard Corps' awkward response to a fist bump, and multiple relationships that start rocky but end in friendship – I know this is clichéd, but I always liked that formula. Jean-Claude Van Damme is great as a tortured war vet who fought for 3 years in Afghanistan and Iraq before being discharged after taking the blame for a school full of children being blown to bits by a terrorist in Iraq. There is some creative editing depicting his post traumatic stress syndrome, including cuts to gunfire while he's casing a club. It gives the viewer the same confusion that Van Damme's character has in trying to distinguish the beats of the music to the sound of gunfire.The main bad guy is fearsome with a bunch of man-eating dogs. He stabs one man and feeds his liver to the dogs, which was pretty cool. You don't see man-eating dogs much in action movies anymore. The action scenes are few and far between in the first half, but once they come in the second half they're furious. Pretty much one main character dies per action scene and plenty of bullets fly throughout. I was disappointed at first that JCVD wasn't hand-to-hand fighting as much, but toward the end of the second act there's a huge fight between him and the Barclay character where he pretty much beats the hell out of him. The climactic scene involves multiple shootouts and a crushing-by-falling-car death.The Hard Corps starts out a little slow but picks up around the middle. The characters are surprisingly well developed and the acting is very good. The action isn't as high-octane like a Mission Impossible movie, but it delivers what is expected. I am giving this movie an 8, why? Because it has his own original story, the movie did not copy or ripped off anyone's story. Van Damme did a solid job at acting and so did Vivica A. Fox as Tamara Barclay sister of Wayne Barclay, she was very hot in this flick.The Hard Corps is a 2006 American action film written and directed by Sheldon Lettich.
