Legionnaire is beautifully photographed and contains both an engaging
story (loosely based on Beau Geste) and good performances by the
actors. Underrated from the start, the picture undeservedly went
straight to video. However, it is not a 10 out of 10 as some suggest.
The story and characters fall too often into clichés and some of the
roles could have been given more depth. Particularly the love story,
mostly told in flash backs, is depicted with emotionally appealing
pictures and music but remains too superficial to be fully satisfying.
This film had the potential to be great with a bit more emphasis on the
drama part and toning down the more usual action flick formula (the
action scenes are well done, though). However, here is hope that van
Damme will make more serious movies, even if they have martial arts and
action themes. I always liked him as an actor. There is an honesty and
modesty to van Damme's work that is missing in most Hollywood products.
