Fantasy Flicks: RESOLVE
As a lover of action films, I have a deep appreciation and affection for the film career of the man known as Jean Claude Van Damme. Because of this, I’ve grown especially fond of the work by his children Kristopher and Bianca and decided to use my amazing intellect and terrible photo-editing skills to create the perfect starring vehicle for Kris. It isn’t Citizen Kane but as you will see it has all of the necessary tools to be a solid action-packed flick. So follow me as we celebrate the birthday of our newest leading man; Kristopher Van Damme. Behold my latest Fantasy Flick; RESOLVE….
The Story: Chris Stevens is an international student studying in Paris. He becomes romantically involved with a young and passionate Algerian girl named Ilana. Her deep roots and connection with a French Islamic Peace Movement cause her to be targeted by a radical group of Anti-Islam Frechmen called Résoudre, or Resolve. They target a peaceful protest on the campus of the University of Paris but are discovered and thwarted by Chris. His intervention leads to an attack and an abduction of his girlfriend Ilanna. Forced to use every tool at his disposal, Chris will stop at nothing to save Ilanna and bring down the French terrorists whose new plot involves placing an explosive at the Grand Mosque of Paris.
I have the photoshopping skills of an 8 year old.
Chris Stevens: Chris is an American graduate student at the University of Paris studying Mechanical Engineering. Raised by a single father in a military family, Chris spent countless hours tinkering with any type of mechanics that he could find. After his father returned home from the Persian Gulf War, Chris traveled along with him around the world as his father had taken a position protecting an American diplomat. This allowed Chris to learn many forms of self-defense and when he was 16 they moved to Paris to protect the American diplomat to France.

Ilanna: Ilanna is a political science major who works tirelessly with the French-Algerian Peace Alliance to help ease tensions in the French media toward followers of Islam. Her peaceful protest on the campus of the University of Paris turns violent when the terrorist organization Résoudre attacks the mob and Ilanna is saved by her boyfriend Chris. Shortly afterwards, Illanna is abducted by the group’s leader, Malcolm, and taken to be held as bait for Chris.

Malcolm: A former commando for the French Marine Nationale, Malcolm was forced out of the military after his methods became too exhaustive to cover up. He formed Résoudre in 2006 and began targeting Islamic leaders in the suburban population of Paris. As the years have passed, the tactics of Résoudre have grown more and more aggressive and now they seek to make an impact on French relations by striking at one of the oldest Muslim landmarks in Paris.
