It certainly isn't Woo so it must be Yancy Butler.

Guessing you are a fan of Drop Zone and the Lake Placid sequels too.

Well Yancy did 'intrigue' in my younger years....

I've always considered Universal Soldier, Sudden Death and Hard Target to be JCVDs best films. And I put it down to a superior director in all cases. Yes Roland included.
That said I haven't seen all three in yonks.

Sudden Impact was so good that Clint Eastwood remade it.

Fave Van Damme's for me - Universal Soldier, Blood Sport and Sudden Death.

With Maximum Risk and Hard Target making it a top five.

Was just an emoji. Not compatible maybe. Tapatalk is rubbish.
Yeah sorry, Sudden Death not Sudden Impact.

Most of his early output was good. Only when he went off to DTV world I lost interest. Cyborg has always been a fave too. The enduring image of Sudden Death has always been him fighting the mascot dressed as a penguin.

I didn't know if you meant Double Impact or Sudden Death.

It's a bit like Seagal films where they have a small dictionary of cool words that they draw out of a hat to make their movie titles.
