Jean-Claude Van Damme, one of world's most successful stars of both the big and small screens, returns in full throttle action mode in UNTIL DEATH, a movie filled with enough testosterone to satisfy even the most demanding of viewers.
A bone-chilling, action-packed thriller, the film mixes drugs, money and high quality action sequences to superb effect. Van Damme, who once described himself as the "Fred Astaire of Karate," exudes raw muscle and charisma in this perfect showcase for his undisputed talents. UNTIL DEATH also stars Academy Award and BAFTA nominated Stephen Rea (Crying Game).
Van Damme plays a dirty cop, fighting to capture his ex-partner. His character, Anthony Stowe, is a narcotics lieutenant addicted to heroin, has a bad attitude, and everyone hates him, including his soon-to-be-ex wife. His ex-partner, Gabriel Callaghan (Stephen Rea) is working to become the new leader of the gangsters in local organized crime. Callaghan sends his goons after Anthony, who's shot in the head and comes very close to death, falling into a coma. Months later, he awakens from the coma with the idea of finishing off his former partner and becoming a better person, and better husband.
For Van Damme in UNTIL DEATH, it's not the plan, it's the execution that's counts.
