Blu-ray Review: KILL ‘EM ALL (2017)

KILL ‘EM ALL was directed by Peter Malota, written by Jesse Cilio, Brian Smolensky and Craig Stewartand and stars Jean-Claude Van Damme, Autumn Reeser, María Conchita Alonso, Peter Stormare, Daniel Bernhardt, and Kris Van Damme.

After a massive shootout, a mysterious stranger (Van Damme) arrives at a local hospital on the brink of death.  Then, a foreign gang brazenly comes to the hospital to hunt him down.  His nurse, the sole surviving witness to the follow-up shootout, must face an FBI interrogation that unlocks a plot of international intrigue and revenge.  With enough twists and turns, KILL’EM ALL will keep you guessing until the final bullet is fired.

This action-thriller focuses on Suzanne (Autumn Reeser), the nurse who is being questioned by Agent Mark Holman (Peter Stormare) and Agent Linda Sanders (Maria Conchita Alonso) about what all went down inside the hospital. As she recounts the violent events that took place, this is where we learn more about Philip (Van Damme), his past and why this group of professional finishers are after him. Suzanne shares her story with the agents but the information she delivers and what actually took place end up being a little different from each other. Things aren’t always as they appear and this is just the case.

The packaging comes with a slipcover/o-card. The front of the packaging features the artwork you see up top and the back includes movie details and some images. The Blu-ray disc also features it own individual artwork. Inserting the disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for this high-definition release were crisp and clear. I didn’t have any issues with the video and audio.

Bottom line is, Kill ‘Em All was an okay Van Damme action movie but unfortunately it wasn’t anything special. It was nice to see him working with Peter Malota who served as the fight choreographer on the action classics Double Impact and Universal Soldier. This was also the directorial debut for Malota. It was also pretty neat to see JCVD square off against Daniel Bernhardt who picked up the torch in three of the Bloodsport sequels. So yeah, the movie has some action scenes where JCVD has to go up against the bad guys and he’s still got it after all these years. He looked a little tired but he’s still able to kick some ass. As far as the story goes, it was kind of interesting and it did come with a few twists – maybe one too many. The international cast was really good plus I’ll pretty much watch anything that Peter Stormare is in. Peter Stormare and María Conchita Alonso were one of the highlights of this movie. Kill ‘Em All is now available on Blu-ray and if you’re a Van Damme fan or into martial arts movies, then give it a shot.
