The Doorman is a 1999 action movie that tells the story of an ex-marine, Christophe "The Doorman" Dubois, who works as a bouncer in a club in Los Angeles. Christophe comes from a family of fighters and grew up learning martial arts and military tactics from his grandfather. His military training has made him a formidable fighter, and he has earned a reputation as one of the toughest doormen in the city.

One night, a group of gangsters led by Victor (Nils Allen Stewart) enters the club and demands to see the owner. When they are told that he is not there, they start a brawl, and Christophe steps in to protect the other patrons. Victor is impressed with Christophe's fighting skills and offers him a job as his personal bodyguard. However, Christophe declines the offer, knowing that Victor is a dangerous man with a criminal past.

Christophe's life takes a turn for the worse when his sister, who is a drug addict, is kidnapped by Victor's gang. Christophe feels responsible for his sister's addiction and decides to take matters into his own hands. With the help of his friend and former marine, Jonesy (Kaos), Christophe fights his way through the city's criminal underworld to rescue his sister and bring down Victor's gang.

The Doorman is an action-packed movie that showcases Dominiquie Vandenberg's martial arts skills. The fight scenes are choreographed and shot well, with an emphasis on hand-to-hand combat rather than gunplay. The movie also explores the theme of loyalty, as Christophe struggles to balance his loyalty to his family and his sense of duty as a marine.

One of the strengths of The Doorman is its strong cast. Dominiquie Vandenberg is excellent in the lead role, bringing both physicality and vulnerability to Christophe. Kaos is also impressive as Jonesy, providing comic relief and a touch of humanity in a movie that is otherwise quite dark. Nils Allen Stewart is a convincing villain, with a menacing presence that makes him a formidable adversary for Christophe.

The movie also benefits from its setting in Los Angeles, which provides a gritty and colorful backdrop for the action. The city's seedy underbelly is depicted in a realistic and uncompromising way, with the violence and brutality of the criminal underworld juxtaposed with the glamour and excess of the club scene.

Overall, The Doorman is an entertaining and well-made action movie that will appeal to fans of the genre. While it may not break new ground, it delivers what it promises: fast-paced action, memorable characters, and a satisfying conclusion.

The Doorman is a 1999 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 31 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.3.
