Yeah, I feel the director tried his best with what he had to work with, which was just... a really bad script and concept to begin with (not to mention some of the supporting roles and casting). I almost dozed off towards the last 10-15 minutes...

I'd want to see Dolph's nerdish, zen-like, literate badass in a better film. 8)

This and ALTITUDE really show the "ambition" (ie lack of) that the producers have. I admire young Richard Switzer for having launched his producing career at barely 18 of age, but since he's co-credited with the stories I question his tastes.

I completely missed this one. Reading your reviews here I think I'm going to wait until someone uploads the 10-minute executive summary of Dolph's scenes and just skip the rest. :mrgreen:

In the French version, I criticize a little bit the fact that Marco's voice dubble haven't a german accent. Otherwise, I can't remember the name of the German secret service to which he belongs!

Although you will be going into your film career in Volume 2 I was wondering if you can give us any tidbits about working on Black Water where you reunite with Jean-Claude Van Damme?

Well there’s a whole chapter that’s going to be in there on it but it was a hilarious and tragic experience because I’ll say whatever character flaws Jean-Claude had have only been exacerbated by the passage of time. I tremendously enjoyed working on the film because it was on the USS Alabama which is a ship that covered my father during his experience in World War II as they were swimming ashore to islands in the Pacific. So that was memorable; that part of the country Mobile Alabama has exquisite beaches and restaurants and the group of people that were assembled for the film were really interesting. The tragedy lies in the brain damage that’s occurred to people over the passage of time. There were a lot of things about that movie that were unique but it was hilarious and tragic at the same time. I’ll just tell you I’m on my fourth movie where I’m working with a leading man who is incapable of learning his lines or using cue cards or repeating phrases that were uttered by the director or script supervisor off camera. I think you’ll agree I was ruthlessly candid in Volume 1 so expect the same in Volume 2. I think some of these movie stars have the ability to live in paradise but because of their own self destruction they don’t achieve that. I certainly address that in book 2.

Just found out that the French edition is in the wrong 1.78 aspect ratio (without the 2.39 caches) and in 1080i at 25fps instead of (1080p 24fps)...
