Jean-Claude Van Damme will soon grace our television screens once again, and I’m so thankful. The master of action movies is far from retired, returning to Netflix in this French-language film, titled The Last Mercenary. It’s a film with a goofy sense of humor, great action sequences and a classic action movie plot! What more could you ask for? Perhaps a quality movie? Anyways, it’s all types of JCVD, as he’s dancing, doing the splits, and whooping some butt! There’s not much to it, but it seems like a great Saturday night movie. If nothing else, it’s a nostalgia trip for Jean-Claude Van Damme fans around the world, like myself. Nevertheless, see what you think! Watch The Last Mercenary trailer can be found below!
On a side note, Jean-Claude Van Damme will star in the upcoming Minions movie, alongside Steve Carell and Taraji P. Henson. Van Damme will be voicing a character named Jean Clawed, which is obviously supposed to be funny, but is it? To each their own. Nevertheless, Minions: The Rise of Gru is slated to premiere on July 1, 2022.
