----Jean Claude Van Damme movies!-----

The only movies I saw with him were "Maximum Risk", "Universal Soilder". I thought both movies were awesome. Of course I love action movies, but these movies deliverd. My friend suggested "From Hell". I want to see that, does anyone suggest others?

Dude,

Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Hard Target, Double Impact, Lion Heart, and Time Cop. I'd check it out Replicant as well. He plays a really cool bad guy in that movie.

Sudden Death, Hard Target and Timecop are my personal favorites. Double Team is pretty bad, but its a guilty pleasure of mine.

Wake of Death is his newest movie available, it was ok, nothing great.
I would recommend:
Timecop
In Hell
Hard Target
Replicant
The Order
Lionheart
Knock Off
Nowhere to Run
Double Team
Double Impact
Sudden Death

Hell, i could go on and on, but of course i am a HUGE Van Damme fan.

If you're a fan of those then you will LOVE almost all of these: Blood Sport, Hard Target, Lion Heart, Time Cop, Double Impact and Sudden Death.

My Van Damme rankings. His top 6 films in my mind.

1. Kickboxer (must see)
2. Lionheart (maybe his best film, excellent fights and quotes)
3. Double Impact (comedy and action like you wouldnt believe)
4. Hard Target (great action, great villains)
5. Bloodsport (his most famous film, considered a classic by many)
6. Universal Soldier (Van Damme and Lundgren team up)

everything else he made is far off from these 6 in my opinion.


Make sure you check out Double Impact Criterion.

Is Van Damme still popular in Europe? In Caché the teenaged son character has a big Van Damme poster up in his room.

I liked Sudden Death. That's about it for my Van Damme movies.

I freaking love Van Damme. I'm still waiting for widescreen versions of Sudden Death and Timecop (R1).

How? Why? Are you a huge hockey fan or something? Everything about that film, from action to acting to story, is a giant step down from his best films.

Same here. But I still like it. I can still remember the music note for note. It went: DU der DU der DU der DU der DU der DU der, DA do DA do DA do DA do DA do DA do. You get the idea. Gotta love that music. It was the first movie I ever saw of Van Dammes, and the only one I kind of liked.

For me, TIMECOP is the only one that stands up to repeat viewings. (The R2 widescreen version)

I love Sudden Death. Didn't care for Maximum Risk. Knock Off is an okay diversion for once in a while. Double Impact was great. I adore Bloodsport and Universal Soldier. Heck, I like 'em all except for Maximum Risk, Universal Soldier: The Return and Cyborg. I've yet to see Wake Of Death.

I wish he and Lundgren would team up again.

Bloodsport is the definitive Van Damme film. Bolo Yeung as Chong Li is one of the best on-screen villians.

I liked seeing him again in Double Impact, although his role was more limited there.

Nothing like a little Jean-Claude Van Dammage! No love for Death Warrant? Any VD movie that casts TV's Benson and Fame's Cynthia Gibb will always find a special place in my heart.

This is also one of his better films, top 10 for sure. Nothing beats it when Van Damme grabs the lab guy through the bars and holds up a urine sample and asks him what it is. "thats soda pop" the guy responds, and Van Damme pops off the lid I think and holds it up to him, "you want soda pop?"

I've watched a lot of his movies, even if I can't recommend a single one of them to anyone. At least Steven Seagal had Under Siege. Van Damme's biggest movie is probably Timecop. The original mega-violent, Lance Henriksen-centered Hard Target would be worth a watch if a copy of that existed.

Universal Soldier: The Return was one of the worst theatrical-release movies I've ever seen (I've yet to watch an Uwe Boll movie).
