Those 25 years later Chad (Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme) and Frank run a successful martial arts business, and Frank reveals he has a twin brother. Alex (Van Damme) turns out to be a streetwise punk in the Hong Kong criminal world. When finally meeting Alex, they get off on a rocky start. But there is no time for them to bicker as they have to fight Zhang and Griffith gang to get their revenge and claim the tunnel as theirs. Double Impact is often said to be a [[SpiritualLicensee better]] ''VideoGame/DoubleDragon'' movie than the actual [[Film/DoubleDragon live action]] adaption.

* ThemeTwinNaming: Chad and Alex. It is not so much as rhyming as it is the syllables. Their names each have only two syllables and four letters.
