Rating: 1.5/4 -- The level of high-tension violence expected from a Van Damme film is blunted by poor direction, uninspired camera work, and a bland villain. Full Review
Rating: 1.5/5 -- Interesting only for being so totally familiar, even if you've never seen another film about a Ghan-Gheng martial-arts match in an ancient Lost City in Tibet. Full Review
New York Times
Rating: 2.5/5 -- More a study in worldwide combat than a tribute to Van Damme's ascension as a director. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- A speedy and rousing adventure, chock-full of exciting -- if unlikely -- events and swarming with colorful characters in colorful locations.
Rating: 1/4 -- In his first outing, it is unclear whether VanDamme can't manage the scope of this tale, or if he's just a bad director. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- I rushed to finish this movie so I didn't get a late fee.
Rating: 0/4 -- Van Damme calls his film 'the Ben-Hur of martial arts'; boy, is he deluded. Full Review
Description by OLDIES.com:
This pilot movie for the 1976 TV series introduces the Beaudine brothers, Quinton (Tim Matheson) and Morgan (Kurt Russell), who have been separated for eight years since the murder of their parents in an Indian attack on their wagon train. Morgan prefers to be called Two Persons, the name he was given by the Indians who raised him. Quinton has interrupted his medical studies in the East upon hearing of his brother. Reunited, they are intent on finding their still missing younger sister, Patricia. The two set out and quickly meet up with ex-gunslinger Tank Logan (Brian Keith) driving cattle to Cheyenne. Tank offers the brothers a share of the price if they string along with his cowhands. Sensing the need to raise money to fund their expedition, the Beaudines agree, and in the process get caught up in a variety of adventures in the wild frontier town. Newly remastered.
An old friend will lose his ranch if he can't get his herd to market. The Baudine Brothers scrape the bottom of the barrel to find trailhands. This band of misfits face Indians, stampedes, and plain bad luck as they ride into the sunset.
Two brothers lead a cattle drive in search of their missing sister.
