HKFanatic's rating of the film Until Death

Van Damme stars in a loose remake of Johnnie To's 1995 film "Loving You" (!), co-written by "X-Men 2" writer Dan Harris. The first half allows Van Damme to stretch his acting chops as a crooked cop with a heroin addiction - think of it as 'Bad Van Damme: Port of Call New Orleans' - before settling into a conventional redemption arc. A shootout at the midpoint is the highlight of a film otherwise sparse on action.
