LIONHEART * (Theatrical Release France 1990)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

—not about the King of England—shows Jean Claude Van-Damme with a sentimental side that backs desire to do justice with a wallop. The film, overall, works at the average level with some heart thrown in. It’s worth a watch for the street fighting movie fan and has some worthy fighting matches for viewing.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. The movie does not stand in relation to movies like Ip Man or Rocky; but for the hardcore Van Damme fan, the movie should completely satisfy.
