The U.S. Ambassador is killed in the ensuing action, and it’s now up to Jean-Claude and the embassy’s small detachment of U.S. Marines to fend off the attackers.

Embassy rescue is one of the best Van Damme films
“Second in Command” is the best movie that I’ve seen with Jean-Claude Van Damme since his early films, “Bloodsport” of 1985, and “Lionheart” of 1990.” As those films, this one has an interesting plot. There’s more depth to the story than the usual fare of mayhem and gore in Van Damme films. As with some other of his films in the first decade of the 21st century, this film was made solely for video release. That may say a lot about the lack of ticket sales and profits from theater releases.
This film has a huge dose of the pyro-technics, mayhem and gore. But they don’t consume most of the film. Instead, there’s a plot with some realism about saving people in an American embassy. The story revolves around a rebellion in Moldova and an attack on the American embassy. The freely elected president of the country is being protected there. So, this film scores much better than the usual mindless mayhem of Van Damme films.
The idea of an embassy siege is not a contrived Hollywood plot. The fact that there have been such incidents in the recent past adds a sense of realism to the film. Of course, this was made before the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack of the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, in which the American ambassador and others were killed.
The writers may have been inspired by real incidents of the past. The most successful large rescue happened in 1991. That took place in Somalia. Armed rebellion broke out in Mogadishu in January. People from several countries made their way to the U.S. embassy. The rescue was called Operation Eastern Exit. Two huge helicopters delivered a team of 60 Marines and Navy SEALS to the compound on January 5. The choppers returned to Guam with the first 61 evacuees. Then, after midnight on Jan. 6, the main rescue took place. Four waves of five Sea Knight helicopters each evacuated the entire compound. In the end, 281 people from 30 nations were rescued through the American embassy.
This is pretty run of the mill stuff.
Its a bit more of an understated JCVD and that’s not a bad thing.
The action is a bit basic as is the plot.
Would I watch it twice? No
Did I feel like I was suffering when I watched it? No
