After a promising start with a well-plotted prelude that takes place in Marseilles, Legionnaire fails to navigate the sands of the Moroccan desert effectively.
Jean-Claude Van Damme stars
as Alain Lefevre, a prizefighter that crosses the local mob by failing to take a dive
after it was set up. After a chase through the Marseilles streets, Alain spots a
convenient Foreign Legion recruiting station. Cut to Morocco: Alain is a recruit in the
French Foreign Legion. Legionnaire spends some good moments introducing
Alains fellow recruits. The training is executed in quick strokes like a fighter
throwing a series of jabs. Theres a good barracks brawl that has Alain taking on the
German bully. Its actually restrained in terms of Van Damme fights. An obbligato
whore house scene is included as well as some cliché speeches by the drillmaster.
