This $17 million direct-to-video production by Hong Kong director Ringo Lam is the story of a fire-obsessed serial killer (Jean-Claude Van Damme) and the recently retired cop (Michael Rooker) intent on stopping him. After finding his hair follicle at a crime scene, a secret government agency clones the killer in the hopes that the replicant will aid in the search. Although he's full-grown, the clone (also played by Van Damme) has the emotional and mental capacity of a young child. Soon the naïve replicant begins to have visions of past murders and an abusive mother, leading him to escape and seek the killer on his own. ~ Skyler Miller, Rovi
Replicant is good movie. It's definetly one of Jean-Claude' s best movies, acting wise. Replicant proved to me that he can be an awesome villan. There are some good fights, some of the scenes are a bit TV-esque, but i really liked it. he did really well in dual roles. I really enjoy this movie, and if you can go into this movie knowing that Jean-Claude isn't a great actor and he looks too old to be an action star, then you just might like this movie. Jean Claude might look too old, but he is still in good physical shape. and for the debaters out there Segal vs Van Damme, i think van damme has always made better movies and is in way better shape.
