Director Albert Pyun was briefly approached when the project was then called 'The Corsican Brothers' in the late 1980s. He said on his Facebook page in 2012: "The last time I've spoken with JCVD was on the roof of a building across the street from Cannon on Wilshire. JCVD wanted to talk in private and he told me the story he wanted to do for his next film called "Corsican Brother" which became Double Impact I believe. JCVD asked if I would want to direct it for him. The whole idea of TWO JCVDs seemed a bit far fetched and I did not commit either way but told him I had reservations about how the twins idea would work. I told him I thought he should keep moving in the direction of a pure action star and leave the gimmick movies behind. Haven't seen or talked to him since directly." See more »
When Chad and Danielle are on the boat after their swim in the harbor, Chad's clothes are completely dry as well as his hair which looks as if it has just been styled. Danielle's clothes are hanging on a line in the bottom of the boat to dry out, but, her hair has just been blown dry without a blow dryer on the boat. Alex would not have kept one on the boat since Danielle had never been to the island before. See more »
What's the big hurry? Are you, um... hiding something?
No? Well, that's good, because... I have to frisk you. And if I don't find anything, well, then... I can let you go.
[she frisks Danielle]
Now we can just forget this ever happened. Come on, now, turn around. That's a good girl. Yeah. And now... you can frisk me.

OK, face it, Jean-Claude cannot act his way out of a wet paper bag. That is not why we watch him. We watch for the action, and this film has plenty of that.
No viewing of Jean-Claude's films would be complete without this one where he plays both himself and his brother. Separated by 25 years, one (Alex) stays in Hong Kong as a smugger, and the other (Chad) is a fitness instructor in California. That's ladies fitness instructor in pretty blue tights. Hmm, is there something to his role as "Gay Karate Man" in his first film? California Jean-Claude returns to Hong Kong to join Honk Kond Jean Claude to regain what is rightfully theirs. Luscious scenery provided by Alex's girlfriend Danielle (Alonna Shaw). Hot breathing brought on by action between Danielle and Kara (Corinna Everson). The return of Bolo Yeung (Bloodsport) as Moon is a big big plus for the film.
Lots of action, lots of laughs, and a good time for all.
