Jean-Claude Van Damme’s franchises had a rough go back in the day. Both Bloodsport and Kickboxer continued with straight-to-video sequels that not only did not star Van Damme, but featured completely new characters.

If you’re in the market for an action thriller, but you don’t really care if the story is formulaic, the performances are terrible, and it looks like everybody phoned it in, then we have good news.
