Popular action star Jean-Claude Van Damme teams with one of the cinema’s most dynamic directors, John Woo, in the Alphaville-Renaissance production of Universal Pictures’ action-drama Hard Target. Van Damme is Chance Boudreaux, a down-and-out New Orleans merchant seaman, who uses his high-powered martial arts skills to battle a sadistic band of hunters who prey on homeless veterans in a deadly safari game.
His quest begins when he comes to the rescue of a young woman (Yance Butler) whose father was a recent victim of the killers. The supporting cast includes Lance Henriksen (Near Dark), playing the chief hunter with cold-blooded resolve. Beloved character actor Wilfred Brimley turns in a salty, lively performance as Chance’s crafty Cajun uncle.
Listen, it’s not that complicated. You know if you’re the kind of person who wants to watch ten minutes of Jean Claude Van Damme shooting and spin-kicking his way through an exploding warehouse full of Mardi Gras floats. Just do yourself a favor and watch it already!
