Replicant suffers from comedy eclipsing its action and violence, of which, is cheesy in its delivery due to its light, breezy mood within a serial killing plot point, with Van Damme’s character not registering as creepy and scary as he should. By favoring cheeriness and fish-out-of-the-water scenes over a dark, bleak tone and serious-minded set pieces, it becomes modestly involving where it could be stirring.
Enough of the movies with "double the action, double the Van Damme" - is he so cheap an actor that producers pay him for doing two roles? Or is he so self-absorbed of himself that he needs to do every role? When do we get a film where he does everything? At least I found him realistic as a sick serial killer and the film would have been better with only Michael Rooker trying to stop him.
