Critic Reviews of "Sudden Death"Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Reuniting Hyams and Van Damme, director and star of Timecop, this spectacular nail-biter exploits their combined, if limited, abilities to the full.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Offers above-average pyrotechnics, a body count that steadily mounts, and plenty of hand-to-hand combat.San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
Sudden Death is one of the best action thrillers of 1995. It's also the film Jean-Claude Van Damme has been building up to for 10 years.Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
Despite the elaborate stunts, go-go-go direction from Peter Hyams, plus butt-kicking and surprise goalie action from Van Damme, Death deserves the hockey-puck booby prize for...getting its jollies by putting kids in jeopardy.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 13, 2001
A treat for Jean-Claude Van Damme fans, a superior action thriller loaded with jaw-dropping stunts and special effects, and strong in production values.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Van Damme races against time, trying to thwart Boothe and defuse all the bombs. But in the hands of director Peter Hyams, these are just banal action-movie chores.Reel Film ReviewsJanuary 05, 2017
An especially blatant Die Hard knockoff...TV GuideNovember 02, 2008
Good clean fun, with just the right ratio of explosions to dialogue.Film4November 02, 2008
Van Damme is at his butt-kicking best, with Sudden Death offering all the thrills, spills and stuff blowing up that action fans relish.Fantastica DailyNovember 12, 2005
The best of the many Die Hard rip-offs made during the 1990s. Sudden Death is a thrilling rollercoaster ride of hard-edged action.TheMovieReport.comDecember 05, 2004
Wooden-as-ever Van Damme is no Bruce Willis, unfunny main bad guy Powers Boothe is no Alan Rickman, and uninspired director Peter Hyams is no John McTiernan.Capital Times (Madison, WI)July 31, 2003
Gets a lot of mileage out of the well-worn trapped-in-a-blank-full-of-hostages action genre.
