Synopsis


The Quest
Martial arts movie star Jean-Claude Van Damme made his debut behind the camera as the director of this sweeping action drama. Van Damme stars as Chris Dubois, a clown pickpocket and Fagin-like leader of orphan thieves in 1925 New York City. Kidnapped by gun smugglers and then sold to pirate captain Lord Dobbs (Roger Moore), Chris eventually ends up the property of Khao (Aki Aleong), a master Asian kickboxer. His fighting skills win Chris a chance at a legendary contest, a gladiatorial showdown between champions of the world's many diverse combat styles in a Tibetan lost city. Along for the trip are the avaricious Dobbs, heavyweight boxing champ and fellow competitor Maxie (James Remar), and Carrie (Janet Gunn), a beautiful female reporter. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    I waited a long time for this to get on Blu-ray. It is not very well known but it is a great movie with lots of great fight scenes and scenery. The fighters come from around the world and each one has their own special style that gets displayed at the main showdown. It is worth buying. Roger Moore and Jean Claude Van Dam are excellent. Big improvement over the DVD version.

    This is, in my opinion, the best Jean-Claude van Damme's best martial arts movie. I like the differences of the fighting styles that are included in this film. It has characters from all over the globe competing in a tournament to win a golden dragon. Of course there are twists and turns and a lot of martial arts action.

    This Movie Marked the End For Van Damme

    'The Quest' really marked the end of the line for Jean Claude Van Damme. Poorly directed and not nearly interesting enough to keep the attention of most viewers, this film is disappointing in just about every aspect. What is most surprising though, is that Roger Moore (of James Bond fame) took a part in this movie.

    I love it when he branches off and tries different genres and here with drama he succeeded past my expectations. I would hate to be around this man when he's pushed too far.

    Overall this movie was a good movie and was what I expected from JCVD. It wasn't as good as when I first saw it as a kid, but that's just cause I now I can see all of the corny parts as extra cheesy:p
