Hard Target (1993) was one of the more critically well-received Jean-Claude Van Damme movies. It is directed by the great talent out of Hong Kong, John Woo.
Also featured is Wilford Brimley sporting an absurd accent.
I consider this a solid action film, especially if you are in the mood to see one.
If you are in the mood for something more high brow, I suggest an old classic an one of my all-time favorites: Double Indemnity (1944).
A woman hires a drifter as her guide through New Orleans in search of her father, who has gone missing. They discover a deadly game of cat and mouse behind his disappearance in the process.
I can’t be you just used the phrase “critically well received” and JCVD in the same sentence.
Double Indemnity was sic. The Big Sleep even better.
Oh …. my …. god.
Thank you, sir.
Not sure who did the great voice over on the trailer, but I though of this gag video from ten years ago-
Classic noir. Loved it.
