Throwback Thursday: The Quest
The Quest is a pretty sweet martial arts flick. I mean, I liked it better when it was called Bloodsport but it’s hard for me to argue with the old tournament styled stereotype fights. You know the ones; Chinese guy does crazy kung fu, Brazilian guy does capoeira, Japanese guy is a sumo. The only one that doesn’t fit is Van Damme’s character not doing some sort of Belgian waffle-based martial art. It’s nice that Abdel Qissi got some more work as KHAN!!!! But I think I liked him better as the main bad guy in Lionheart. There was a pretty serious lawsuit between JCVD and the real Frank Dux about the content of this movie. If you read the story it is kind of hard to believe that Van Damme won the suit but I think by that time most people were growing tired of Dux’s shtick.
