Well, we've already tackled Steven Seagal's movies.
So, it's only natural that we follow up with Van Damme films.

I've always liked Van Damme's movies.
The "Muscles from Brussels" has been a favorite actor of mine since I was a teenager.

I voted for Lionheart.
I love that movie and can watch it over & over.   Thumbup



(say it with me....NUT PUNCH!  POW!!)




Double Impact and Bloodsport tied for 2nd place.
I also like The Quest.
Roger Moore & Van Damme give good performances in that one.

How about you?
What's your favorite Van Damme film?

I voted for Lionheart, but I have to say that all of the Jean-Claude Van Damme movies that I've seen have been enjoyable, I would rate them all about equal. His movies are sort of like the Denny's restaurants of film, they're not going to be really great, but they will be familiar, with the occasional surprise, a little humor, and always good.  Thumbup

I've only seen two movies on that entire list, Timecop and Universal Soldier. I went with the latter.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

Hard Target is probably my fave.  The action scenes are mostly well-handled, and pretty amusing.  I like both bad guys a lot - Vosloo and Lance Henriksen both do a great job.  And it has Wilford Brimley as an arrow shooting, one-line spouting Cajun.  What more do you need?

I'm going to pick LEGIONAIRE because I just like films are supposedly set in the Desert regions of North Africa. Van Dam should have continued that Legionaire idea and given up martial arts films.  Smile The film itself could have been better, but it was still neat as he didn't use martial arts except for some boxing in the film.

Bloodsport  Thumbup Brings me back to childhood memories of watching TBS's "Movies for guys who likes movies" program all the time.

Hard to tell some Van Damme Movies apart.  I mean alot of his movies are centred around a martial arts tournament.  That said I voted for his best fighting tournament movie, Bloodsport.

Better? Hard Target, for the villains and the terrific action, or Sudden Death, which is one of his most suspense-driven movies.

Funnier? You can't go wrong with Double team or Knock Off. Just remembering the fight in the Coliseum or the rickshaw race makes me crack up.

Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.

Legionnaire all the way. 

Not only is this quite possibly the only movie he is in where he doesn't have absolute strength over everyone around him, but it also shows an acting side of Van Damme.  My favorite pick is definitely: Legionnaire (with Double Impact a close second, because of the hot girlfriend).

I've always liked Bloodsport the best.

I also like how in that movie due to his thick accent, everytime he says Jenny, it sounds like Johnny.
