The acting in this movie isn't great. Well, you can fight over this and the final film with Scott Adkins. For me the highlight of that movie is the chase through the Old City of Jerusalem, with Van Damme disguised as a Hasidic Jew, running from and fighting with the Israeli police. But I will complain about that the movie was edited badly at several parts. Ben Ner arrives and explains to Rudy and Lt. But when Rudy receives a call from his archaeologist father to say the he is in trouble in Tel Aviv Rudy jumps on the first plane out there. Van Damme plays Rudy whose father, Oscar is an archaeologist.
The last chapter from their religious text, buried by Le Vaillant in a secret place, becomes lost in the desert after the attack. Rudy grabs the map and runs out of the office with Dalia. It's just sad that his movies get released direct to video now, as Jean Claude is in good form here and the story which he co-wrote is actually pretty good esp. The movie reunited Van Damme with his old sparring partner — who played his film nemesis Tong Po. He triggers an alarm in the process and is forced to fight his way out of the building, finding no car to meet him because the getaway driver, Yuri, was forced to leave by police.
But he must fight for his town when the Van Damme gang comes along, ready to beat everyone up. This new order brings together members from the three main religions of the region: Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Charleton Heston has a cameo in this movie as well, both as the narrator of the opening teaser and in a role later on. The Order is a 2001 American action film directed by , and written by , who also starred in the film. There's also some rather clumsy humor, a good example would be early in the movie where Van Damme steals a priceless egg from a museum but is caught by security guards.

It was utterly wacky and outrageous, and to this day I'm still amazed that I convinced Jean-Claude to do it.
Rudy is later shown visiting the office of his father, who has published a new book. It's not that type of movie. Dalia Barr to ensure that Rudy does not escape. Barr use the opportunity to escape but Ozzy is injured and Avram is killed. Barr and American Rudy Cafmeyer in order to trigger.
In the office Rudy finds an ancient map that Ozzie claims shows the location of the. I resisted renting this film for a long time, but once I sat down to watch it, I found that I loved it. Ozzie discovers the lost manuscripts of the Order, lost ever since the Crusades, and reads their accounts of interfaith harmony. The ending is also pretty good as well. When Rudy's father Vernon Dobtcheff goes missing mysteriously in Israel, Rudy embarks on a quest to find him.
His father goes to Israel. It has not been translated into any other languages besides its original English, though it does contain English and French subtitles. With him and his family in danger, Darren decides to fight back and foil the plans of the bad guys. Meanwhile, Jean-Claude Van Damme , a thief and smuggler of valuable historical artifacts, breaks into a high-security building and steals a precious Fabergé egg. Charlton Heston's role, in which he gets second billing is in actual fact really nothing more than an extended cameo. Ben Cross overplays his villainous cop role with plum relish.
Rudy opens the safe-deposit box and finds a map that shows a series of tunnels and a treasure room beneath Jerusalem. Van Damme is always cool as hell and has some good lines. But it's not all bad, making up for a silly, clichéd and completely unoriginal plot by having a few very enjoyable moments. One big mistake that we made with The Order was taking the tone in a more serious direction in the third act. During the furious battle for the Holy City, a Flemish Knight, Charles Le Vaillant, had a life-changing epiphany.
Barr that he joined the Order when he found out about the treasure. For more information see our. Many may not realize that Van Damme is actually martial arts film royalty.
