Action movie star Jean Claude Van Damme has made a comeback in the last few years. After starring roles in smash hit movies ‘Kickboxer,’ ‘Bloodsport’ and ‘Universal Soldier,’ JCVD became a star.
That was back in the late 80’s/90’s, and for a while Van Damme fell off the grid. Openly admitting he had problems with partying and drugs, the ‘Muscles from Brussels’ took some time to recover.
He’s back in a big way now.
Classic Scene From Bloodsport
One of Van Damme’s original big hits ‘Bloodsport’ has been remade. Starring former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, the flick actually looks awesome. For a while Van Damme was starring in some disappointing films, so this is great to see.
JCVD and the UFC legend have been friends for many years, and have finally collaborated in a remake of the 1989 classic. Until this point, St-Pierre’s action movie roles have included ‘Captain America,’ among others.

The new Kickboxer: Vengeance movie stars GSP, Gina Carano, Dave Bautista, Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum. As well as Van Damme, that’s quite a line up for the big remake of Kickboxer.
Check out this awesome fight scene featuring Georges St-Pierre and Jean Cluade Van Damme going at it.
Gsp Got Served
Although it was just a movie scene, Jean Claude Van Damme showed he still has it. Seeing the success of the film after being released just months ago, filming for Kickboxer: Retaliation has already started.
The third instalment in the Kickboxer series is due in 2017. The film stars Alain Moussi, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Christopher Lambert, Ronaldinho, Mike Tyson and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson. Now THAT is a super strong line up of stars for an action movie.
