Plot: Chris embarks on an odyssey of self-discovery that spans the globe. Kidnapped and enslaved by gun smugglers, sold by pirates and thrust into the murky underworld of gambling and kickboxing, Chris' journey takes him to forbidding Muay Thai Island where deadly martial arts are taught, the colonial splendor of British East Asia, the dank back alleys of Bangkok, desolate deserts once trod by the warriors of Genghis Khan and finally, the ancient Lost City. There he must face the ultimate test of his manhood in the fabled Ghang-gheng, the ancient winner-take-all competition in which the deadliest fighters from around the world employ the most spectacular feats of martial arts skills ever displayed in order to win the prized Golden Dragon. But fighting prowess alone will not be enough for Chris to triumph over such daunting foes. He must reach deep inside and access all of the determination, strength of character and sense of selfless honor within in order to triumph over this final obstacle on his long trek home. Runtime: 95 mins Release Date: 25 Apr 1996
I think The Quest is very simular with one of Van Damme's other movies, Bloodsport. And because i like Bloodsport i must say i like this one to. Roger Moore is very good as Lord Edgar Dobbs and Van Damme is also good as Christopher Dubois. The movie is about a fighting tournament in the lost city and the winner gets a dragon of gold. But on the way to victory Christopher Dubois must face many of the world's greatest fighters....
Van Damme's Masterpiece. (by furiousneon)
The Quest was a great action film. It reminded me very much of Bloodsport and Lionheart which were great to me. This movie had a decent plot, not difficult to understand. JCVD did an excellent job directing this film, it was beautifully shot and the fight scenes were remarkable. Van Damme is still awesome and a great martial artist. Hopefully his upcoming films will be more like this or bloodsport, because thats the Van Damme that i miss and many others do too. 10/10.
A true Quest! (by a_hill99)
This movie is just great!! The plot is just amazing, the idea of a gathering from all over the world for a true tournament of champions, at a time when it was an adventure in of itself just getting there! The movie goes to some stunning location and the fights scenes are simply amazing! It has some of the most realistic portrayals of more styles than any half dozen other action movies! I love it!
Excellent! (by The__Watcher)
I am a Jean-Claude Van Damme Fan and have to say this is a 'Damme' good film. Doesn't the film remind you of 'Bloodsport'? Well this has a good story about Chris who wants to get the golden dragon and ends up in a tournament for the dragon. The fight scenes aren't that violent as most people would want to see. But it is an Epic, with a dramatic story. Roger Moore even acts in it gives a 'Bond' type entrance to his name. Overall this is a great film which shall not be missed by all fans. Van Damme is the man!
Surprisingly good (by Slaphammer1)
This film is a lot better than I expected, and much better than the other imdb comments would imply. You can essentially split this movie in half, with the first half being an adventure movie and the second half being a fight competition. I actually liked the adventure portion a lot more than the fight competition, which is surprising since I like stuff like Bloodsport the fight part of The Quest is essentially a higher-budget version of Bloodsport . At any rate, this movie is great visually -- it's filmed in a lot of exotic locations. I also thought the direction was great...there were <more>
some interesting shots that really impressed me for Van Damme's first directorial effort. The story kinda moves along too quickly and there are a couple parts where this strains the believability of the story such as how easy it is for Van Damme to get the fight invitation/map from the boxer , but these are easily overlooked and don't really detract much.I went into this expecting it to be low-budget and fairly dumb, but I was surprised at the lavish production and the fact that it has an actual story which I find more interesting than the fighting.
Pure brilliance!If you easily appreciate spoof movies, prime yourself for THE QUEST by first viewing LIONHEART, BLOODSPORT, KICKBOXER, most any Antonio Banderas movie, a Rocky movie -- ANY Rocky movie, any movie that begins or ends with an old person reading a book, and that episode of LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE where the Ingalls family go to Chicago and meet children who are tought to steal. THE QUEST spoofs and mimics it all! Yes, it starts off a little slow, but eventually the lampooning gets going at full throttle. My ribs still hurt from laughing so hard. More funny than a whole season <more>
of MONK -- by far, THE QUEST is the best comedy of the latter half of the 1990's. Highly recommended. THE QUEST is laugh-out-loud F U N N Y !
Variety Of Fighters, Nice Colors Made This Fun To Watch (by ccthemovieman-1)
Although it took four viewings before I finally lowered my rating of this from "9" to "8,", I suspect I will still watch this lame-brain action flick a few more times and enjoy it. That's because it offers a great mixture of fascinating fighters in the tournament that covers most of the final 40 minutes of the movie; is a modern-day martial-arts action film with almost no swearing and no sex; and offer some tremendous scenery in the first half of the film as Jean Claude Van Damme and company travel to the Far East for this "World's Greatest Fighter" <more>
tourney.That tourney is a lot of fun to watch except that it got carried away in the final bout, of course, that went on almost as long as all the preliminary bouts! However, the filmmakers were smart to make all the contestants totally different with different styles, making each one fun to watch. You didn't see the same thing each fight. There was everything from a huge Sumo-type wrestler to a little guy who imitated a monkey and a snake jumping and slithering around the ring. By the way, these were real guys, not actors imitating fighters.The photography is magnificent, far better than you would except. The colors are beautiful and the Thailand scenery spectacular. The movie benefits from a classy actor like Roger Moore joining the cast, too. Yeah, it's stupid in parts, but it's fun and highly recommended for first-time viewers who don't know the outcome of the bouts.
The Big Picture of 1951.Spangles, cigarette cards and Tizer. (by ianlouisiana)
A rattling good old-fashioned Boys Own Paper adventure redolent of Saturday Morning Pictures in the early 1950s,colourful,exotic,exciting. Lots of fighting,an almost Conradian plot,a pretty girl with some lovely dresses,a slightly tarnished Englishman as the good/baddie...... what more could any boy want? Mr van Damme has the odd attack of "arty-crafty"Why the clown on stilts? There is a nice nod to "Once upon a time in America",are they using the same set? But generally "The Quest" is good uncomplicated fun.Mr van Damme bounces around a lot,Mr Roger Moore comes <more>
perilously close to giving his best movie performance,certainly his most sympathetic one as "Lord" Dodds,the English privateer who rescues van Damme from one enslavement only to sell him into another. It reminds me of the times we used to stand around in the foyer of the Odeon,Guildford,swapping cigarette card,stocking up on "Spangles" and "Tizer" waiting for the usherette to let us in to the magical and mysterious darkened theatre to marvel at Roy Rogers,Frank Buck and "Don Winslow of the navy". "The Quest" is a throwback to those innocent times.If you either remember them or want to experience them vicariously,you would be well-advised to watch it.
Van Damme the ULTIMATE 80's / B-movie actor (by rowanpearce)
Brilliant! Almost an identical plot as a few other of Van Dammages films - Bloodsport and Kickboxer. But as my pappy always says, if you can't beat it, stick with it! This movie was made in the mid 90's which proves its ability to transcend the decades as it is still as great to watch today as it was when it first came out. It also starts other greats as Roger-some-Moore, and James Remar. Remar really adds he quality to this film that other supporting actors added to Bloodsport. He plays a mug boxer, who finds Van Dammes style of using his legs to fight superb, thus becomes his <more>
biggest fan. No, on a more serious note this film is suberbly made. It has an edge of cheese which is why we all watch Van Damme which was purposely added, the evil Mongol bad guy, and James Remar. I would recommend this film not only to martial arts fans but movie critics as well.
