THE LAST MERCENARY: Van Damme Kicks into Overdrive in the Slam Bang Trailer for Netflix’s Action-Comedy! (Update: Official Key Art Drops!)

By: John M Jerva

Update: To go along with the trailer reveal yesterday, Netflix has also unveiled key art for The Last Mercenary promising that JCVD is the “Daddy of All Secret Agents!” Check out the high kicking Van Dammage below!

(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!

A mysterious former secret service agent must urgently return to France when his estranged son is falsely accused of arms and drug trafficking by the government, following a blunder by an overzealous bureaucrat and a mafia operation.

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.
