(Original Post) After years of looking like he wasn’t having any fun in his movies, Jean-Claude Van Damme looks like he’s finally channeling the JCVD of old in the new Netflix action/comedy The Last Mercenary! Check out a rejuvenated looking JCVD in the high-octane, high kicking trailer below!
Helmed by David Charhon, from a script penned by Charhon and Ismael Sy Savané, The Last Mercenary stars Van Damme, Alban Ivanov, Assa Sylla, Samir Decazza, Patrick Timsit, Eric Judor, and Miou-Miou. Jean-Charles Levy, Nicolas Manuel, Olivier Albou, Laurence Schonberg, David Charhon, Jakéma Charhon, Eponine Maillet, Olias Barco, and Vlad Riashyn produced the film.
From the above trailer, fans really definitely take notice that JCVD is doing all his patented kicks, splits and action and he’s looking in fine form. Hell, the Muscles From Brussels is even breaking out some sweet Kickboxer throwback dance moves to boot! I personally love JC doing a split on the ceiling. It’s almost like it’s the 90’s once again.
The film is in French with subtitles so I’m sure that’ll throw done people off but I’m certainly going to check it out when it hits Netflix on July 30th.
