Van Damme

Bloodsport with Van Damme

Bloodsport

One of Van Damme’s earlier roles is also, in my opinion, one of his best.  Bloodsport (apparently) tells the story of Frank Dux. We’re introduced to Frank Dux, played by Van Damme, as he visit’s his teacher Senzo Tanaka.  After the death of Senzo’s son and Senzo claiming he would never train or teach his … Keep Reading

Dragon Eyes movie poster

Dragon Eyes is the first movie in which UFC /MMA fighter Cung Le takes on a leading role. Backed up by Van Damme’s big name, he manages a nice balance between himself and Van Damme’s character to produce a pretty solid martial arts action flick. So Le plays Ryan Hong, an ex con who arrives … Keep Reading

But this … Keep Reading

Universal Soldier Movie Poster

Some ‘old skool’ Jean Claude Van Damme! This movie isn’t really as much a ‘Martial Arts’ movie as a straight out Action / Sci Fi – but Van Damme uses some cool stuff alongside with Dolph Lundgren.  One of the interesting things I noticed was Michael Jai White in first few minutes of the film! … Keep Reading
