Some terrorists kidnap the Vicepresident of the United States and threaten to blow up the full stadium in which is taking place the final of ice-hockey at the moment. There is only one way and one man to stop them…

Film Review

This is a pale imitation of the Die Hard franchise that just sucks. The low ambitions of the movie are clearly on display when the terrorists hold the Vice-President hostage and he has to call the White House to beg them to transfer some money. In most movies of this genre the President is kidnapped or held hostage because after all he (or she) is the most powerful person in the country with finger on the nuclear button etc etc. Would most Americans have really been worried if Dick Cheney had been kidnapped? The honest answer is- probably not. Why the terrorists would choose a Stanley Cup final to carry out their operation and why, despite many explosions around them, the audience inside the hockey stadium is oblivious to the situation, are unanswerable questions. Let's just say this film is really hokey, not hockey. Those who liked the film and found it to be exciting should get a life.

Sudden Death starts as ex-firefighter Darren McCord (Jean-Claude Van Damme) picks up his two young children Emily (Whittni Wright) & Tyler (Ross Malinger) from his ex-wife Kathi (Kate McNeil) to take them to the Civic Arena to watch the National Ice Hockey League's seventh & final game of the Stanley Cup between the Pittsburgh Penguins & the Chicago Hawks. As Face-Off approaches ex-CIA agent Joshua Foss (Powers Boothe) & his team of mercenaries storm the owner's box overlooking the game & take the Vice President (Raymond J. Barry) hostage. Foss demands that the Government pay him millions of dollars or he will execute his hostages one by one & eventually blow the arena up & everyone inside. By chance McCord discovers what has happened & takes it upon himself to stop Foss & prevent him killing the Vice President, thousands of innocent spectators & his children…Directed by Peter Hymas who was also the director of photography one has to s…

This is a movie with a cool star, cool story and cool directing. But the outcome wasn't THAT cool. As the Star Wars' quote, every good factor got such a strange point of weakness that nearly destroyed it.Van Damme was at his worst. Firstly he's not a very good actor but here he's so bad one. His face had nothing but one-note clueless expression. Sometimes he looked confused or just tired, and in the rest he wasn't even there ! Speaking of which, the man who we used to watch his movies for his clever martial arts and famous kicks, in this one he did neither. For 90 % of the well-choreographed fights his stuntman did the job, and the real man was there for only the easy close-ups in between (with the same one-note clueless expression !). I thought that that diligent stuntman deserved a separate movie or at least putting his name on the credits before Van Damme ! I knew later, by one of the True Hollywood Story documentaries, that during (Sudden Death) and (Doubl…
