||Synopsis: A Hong Kong fashion designer (Jean Claude Van Damme, if you can believe that billing) who had previously been involved in knock offs of major label merchandise, such as "Pumma" running shoes, attempts to go straight with the help of his new partner (Rob Schneider), who is secretly an undercover CIA agent involved in an investigation of the black market. Their main product, jeans, is involved in the knock offs, which brings a representative (Lela Rochon) of the American company to investigate. Paul Sorvino also appears as the head of the CIA operation in Hong Kong. However, just as Schneider is not as he initially seems, everyone in the film switches roles by film's end.

I didn't expect Knock Off to be the film it was. I thought it would be
another lame bit of Van Dammage, just like all the others, but wow! This is
in a league of it's own. First of all, let me say this: it's not a good
film: of course, it isn't! The script's diabolical, the acting is dreadful
and the plot has got to be one of the silliest ever written.
Oh yes, but Knock Off works because it is truly bonkers. Truly out of its
mind. Tsui Hark is a great director (check out the insane Zu: Warriors of
the Magic Mountain, as well as the Hark produced A Chinese ghost Story,
which is truly wonderful) and his irreverent approach works wonders here.
Some of the camerawork here has to be seen to be believed: here, we have a
shot from the inside of a shoe, the camera moving through a wall and through
a computer...while, the action is wildly OTT and hilariously preposterous.
Rough around the edges it may be, but the action is genuinely imaginative
stuff. Like Van Damme's Hard Target, Knock Off has been blessed with a
director who can stage great action, but unlike the irritatingly
melodramatic john woo, Hark directs as though he's having a great time: even
the dramatic (!) scenes border on intentional parody.
And then there's Jean Claude Van Damme, easily the funniest out of all the
Schwarzenegger/Stallone/Seagal crowd. Funniest? Why? Cos he really looks
like he's trying, bless 'im! The scenes where he gets all emotional (check
out the bit when he confronts Hendricks on the roof top: 'YOU LIED TO ME!')
are painfully funny because he just can't act at all. And because of his
accent, lines like 'Don't you understand what you do....i-fax me?' (the
'i-fax' is supposed to be 'affects') sound highly amusing. Unlike that
dullard Steven Seagal, van Damme's limitations as an actor are precisely
what makes him watchable. Then there's the deeply stupid Rob Schneider, who
plays EXACTLY the same role in everything he's ever done, and Paul Sorvino,
who continues to destroy whatever credibilty he gained starring as Pauly
Cicero in GoodFellas.
Plus, what's with the green explosions? The walkie-talkie dropping into the
gangster's hand from nowhere? The bullet-shot that goes through the can of
beans? Rob Schneider whipping Van Damme with a fish? The song at the end of
the film? It's a complete mess!
Knock Off is easily Van Damme's best film, without a shadow of a doubt. It's
utter rubbish, yet it's one of the funniest films I've ever seen. Of course,
you need plenty of irony and an appreciation for stupid action movies to
really get the most out of this. there are some people who will think that
Knock Off is absolutely atrocious. And you know what, they're probably right
too. But what's also correct is that in some deeply disturbing, dangerously
perverse way, it is a work of genius.
