Jean-Claude Van Damme (Black Eagle, Hard Target) stars as a soldier drawn into the world of modern-day gladiators fighting for the amusement of the rich in this fast moving action thriller co-written by Van Damme himself!
Upon receiving news that his brother in Los Angeles is seriously injured, Lyon Gaultier (Van Damme) Deserts the French Foreign Legion from a remote outpost in North Africa. Fleeing from two of the Legion's security force who have orders to bring him back at any cost, Lyon reluctantly turns to the illegal, bare-knuckles underground fighting circuit to raise the money he needs to help his brother's family.
From legendary action director Sheldon Lettich (Double Impact, Bloodsport), this riveting action adventure also stars Harrison Page (Bad Ass), Brian Thompson (The Terminator), Ashley Johnson (The Help) and a cameo appearance by Jeff Speakman (The Perfect Weapon) and combines the raw power and charisma of Van Damme with the exciting world of no-holds-barred street fighting.

One of Van Damme's best flicks....good story, good skirmishes
—Clint Morris, Moviehole
Accompanied by an occasionally jazzy score, the film has a solid dramatic base on which to build the Jean-Claude Van Damme action.
—Andrew L. Urban , Urban Cinefile
Van Damme's gleaming-eyed boyish cool is well used in this likable action fable... nicely shot and edited... outstanding climax.
—Owen Gleiberman , Entertainment Weekly
MVD Rewind have done a killer job compiling their special features for their Lionheart Blu-ray, managing to land new interviews with Van Damme himself. It's wonderful to find someone putting this level of care into any classic Van Damme flick, but especially a lesser-celebrated one such as Lionheart. Kudos to MVD, too, for once again nailing the ex-rental VHS aesthetic in their box art.
