Enjoy christmas in the lost city...
on 28 January 2014
Chris Duboir is Kidnapped and enslaved by gun smugglers, sold by pirates and thrust into the murky underworld of gambling and kick-boxing.
His journey takes him to Muay Thai Island where martial arts are taught, and finally, the ancient Lost City.
There he must face the ultimate test of his manhood in the ancient winner-take-all competition in which the deadliest fighters from around the world employ the most spectacular feats of martial arts skills ever displayed in order to win the prized Golden Dragon.
But fighting prowess alone will not be enough for him to triumph over such daunting foes. He must reach deep inside and access all of the determination, strength of character and sense of selfless honour within in order to triumph over this final obstacle.....
When Van Damme met Bond is a really strange movie to watch and probably not the best Van Damme film to start with.
It's basically a retread of Bloodsport, set in a different time and location, with added Roger Moore. And while it's nowhere near as good as that movie, it's pretty darn good, and beautiful to look at.
Van Damme is competent behind the camera, and even thought the main action of the film is your typical video game style beat em' up, the characters are rich and a little bit different.
Van Damme is good, and Moore looks uncomfortable, but it's Van Dammes Baby, and he really tries hard with this.
Plus, he gets to fight the bloke from Hot Chocolate at the end.
