Knock Off (1998) 88 Films Blu-ray: Action, Hong Kong style

88 Films is releasing director Hark Tsui’s underrated actioner, Knock Off (1998) on Blu-ray. Stars Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Jean-Claude Van Damme stars in an explosive thriller set in Hong Kong’s shady manufacturing scene during the 1997 handover to China. When a shipment of jeans to the USA prove counterfeit, Marcus Ray, the ‘King of the Knock-offs’ (Van Damme), finds himself at the centre of a Russian Mafia plot to hold the United States’ security to ransom. Thousands of tiny micro-bombs disguised within other manufactured goods are scheduled for departure from Hong Kong to America. When Ray’s company’s jeans are found to be the housing for the explosives, he’s the one man the CIA can count on to prevent certain disaster. In a territory where loyalty can change hands overnight, Marcus Ray’s survival will depend on him knowing the fakes from the real thing!

One of Van Damme’s best movies ever.
