    In Nowhere to Run, Van Damme is a good-hearted escaped convict who atones for his sins by, well I'm sure you've seen this kind of plot before, helping a farm house family against evil land developers trying to make them sell by hook or by crook. JCVD is very affable and sweet in this, despite his dark past, and he's up against the kind of Wild West villains that make you wonder just how little law there is in this town. Impossibly brazen, you know? They amply deserve their fates. Rosanna Arquette plays the country beauty who won't move no matter what, a touch more complex than these kinds of movies usually offer. Kieran Culkin gets to do a bit of Home Alone on a farm, but it's the little girl who gets the best "Kids say the darnedest things" moments. And then you have Robert Harmon directing, and while this is no The Hitcher, there's a surprising amount of atmosphere, and he's not afraid of getting the camera too close into the action where things seem to hurt more. What should be an ordinary runaround is elevated just a notch above by all the particulars. I dig it! 10 months 1 week ago

    This is from Showdown in Little Tokyo (1991):

    quote:
    Johnny Murata (Brandon Lee): Kenner, just in case we get killed, I wanted to tell you, you have the biggest dick I've ever seen on a man.
    Chris Kenner (Dolph Lundgren): [nods] Thanks. I don't know what to say.


    So you won't say you didn't know.
