Scene of the Week: JCVD vs. Bolo – The Rematch!
First and foremost let me wish Jean-Claude Van Damme the happiest of birthdays on behalf of the entire staff of Bulletproof Action.
Today is not only JCVD’s birthday, but the kick off to our 2nd Annual Best Van Damme Week Ever! We are going to kick things off with a look at a rematch of one of the most memorable fights in action entertainment history.
In 1988’s Bloodsport, the battle between Jean-Claude Van Damme’s character, Frank Dux, and Bolo Yeung’s character, Chong Li, put the action world on notice that Jean-Claude Van Damme had arrived! And while the kumite finals are often talked about, many fans forget that JCVD and Bolo crossed paths again a few years later in the 1991 film, Double Impact!
This time around they aren’t fighting in a tournament, just a down and dirty battle in a warehouse where both combatants use their surroundings to their advantage. If you’ve never seen Double Impact, prepare yourself for a shocking finale!
Be sure to check back with us as we celebrate the birthday and career of Jean-Claude Van Damme all week long!
