Default JCVD: Hard Target

One of the best examples of Jean Claude Van Damme's tactical brilliance.
From my favorite of his films, "Hard Target". Not only JCVD, but this is John Woo's directorial debut in the United States, a step above the corny and campy Cannon-grade fare that were Van Damme's previous films.

As a kid I much preferred Bloodsport, Wrong Bet and Kickboxer to be honest. Pure cheese martial arts fests!

More recently, JCVD (2008) was a pleasant surprise with its sincere approach.

I like all JCVD films for the most part, but I have to part ways w/ you on the last - I tried watching it, and it bored me to fucking tears. I left halfway thru it, puttin me to sleep

Now it doesnt help that we watched Hard Target and Showdown in Little Tokyo (Dolph!) first. Those are both rollercoasters of awesome fun - JCVD is anything but a fun film. It's a meandering, depressing, mockumentary of sorts that I just couldnt get into.

But yeah - Bloodsport is a classic!
