DOUBLE IMPACT
1991, Park Circus/MGM, 110 min, USA, Dir: Sheldon Lettich

Get two Jean-Claude Van Dammes for the price of one! Twenty-five years after their parents were killed by a business partner in league with a crime lord, long-separated identical twins Chad and Alex Wagner return to Hong Kong to settle the score. Playing two different characters, Van Damme gets to flex his acting muscles as well as his biceps, but rest assured, DOUBLE IMPACT has plenty of martial arts mayhem (including a climactic battle with BLOODSPORT antagonist Bolo Yeung).

Every stranger has a secret in writer-director Garrett Clancy’s indie drama, also released as DEAD LETTERS. Ten years after his first novel went down in flames, the hard knocks just won’t stop for K.C. Corcoran (C. Thomas Howell) - his girlfriend’s just thrown him out. K.C. hopes to get his life back on track by writing another book, and heads to a remote mountain cabin to work on it … but the locals prove more hazardous than he could have guessed. Geoffrey Lewis, Kim Darby and Duane Whitaker are among the fine ensemble cast.
