New Van Damme Fight Scene Doubling Is Hilariously Bad

A new fight scene from a Jean Claude Van Damme actioner has surfaced online.  Above, you can see the scene courtesy of IGN.  Now, you tell me, is this a new low for Jean Claude Van Damme?  We know these guys like to show up and not do too much work, using editing techniques and such to get around their small screen time.

But man, wearing a fucking mask with a double half your age, with a different body type and different voice.  This is hilarious.  As soon as I seen the masks, I knew that one would be pulled off to reveal Van Damme.  Obviously the whole ‘narrative’ of the mask wearing was built to facilitate the inability to afford JCVD.  Surely now, Walter_B will get some ideas from this?  Oh wait, Bruno doesn’t even watch his own movies!

The synopsis: A fast paced action/thriller, where Die Hard meets The Usual Suspects.

The movie is directed by Peter Malota.  It’ll also star Peter Stormare and Kris Van Damme.  This will be Malota’s first directorial venture but he appears to have worked with Jean Claude Van Damme in stuntwork and other areas all the way back to Double Impact.

The movie reunites Jean Claude Van Damme and Daniel Bernhardt for the first time. Jean Claude Van Damme starred in Bloodsport and Daniel Bernhardt in Bloodsport 2, 3 and 4.

This movie will release June 6th.

      McClane takes the mask off, with a downright sour look on his face. Contemptuous, scornful…!

    That last torso shot that just so happens to have the head totally out of shot… Sigh. Cant believe Van Damme would approve of that.

    Oh dear, the one thing that differentiated Van Dame from Seagal for me was I had never seen him use a body double before (haven’t seen all Van Dame’s Movies though) but this is truly awful! I’m afraid any respect I had for him has gone down big time after this! It’s like us sending someone else (who looks nothing like us) into work for the month so we can go on holiday hoping the Boss doesn’t figure it out!

      He has a body double doing high kicks and training in Universal Soldier 3 (the one set in Chernobyl).

    I think that you’re not revealing the plot completely of this movie therefore people are misinterpreting it.

    Let me clear things up for you guys, the mask contains the power of Grayskull and when he puts it on, the mask transforms him completely.

      Ha! Sensei doesn’t need to resort to such deception.

        Notice that since the documentary crew captured the Sensei battling terrorists on a train no further incidents have been reported and railroad travel it’s once again safe.

          And martial arts scholars should take note at 0:58, when Sensei kills a man by kicking him off a moving train. This is proof that not only did he invent the front kick, but he perfected it by lighting its intended recipient on fire beforehand.

            I cannot confirm this information cause of national security reasons but I have it on good authority that this documentary actually is used as a recruitment video for the CIA.

            And by the way.. if it wasn’t for The Sensei there will be no UFC

    It’s generally a bad sign when a movie is advertised as “one movie meets another movie.”

    It’s already been leaked online…. it’s shit, I’d give it a 3/10.

    I’ve seen this already, it’s very bad on every level, this has to have the lowest budget of a Van Damme movie in history! Bad acting from everyone (people like the two cops walking through their lines and Stormare looking like he’s wanting to laugh all the time), awful editing, crap fight scenes, Van Damme doubled most of the time (like the ski mask part), dull story, and laughable overall. I’d watch it again for a laugh with some beers but other than that, well, sorry JCVD, this is shocking.
