The MFF Podcast #79: JCVDVD, the unnecessary sequels Kickboxer: Vengeance and Hard Target 2
Summary: We discuss a double dose of JCVD-themed Direct-to-DVD movies: Kickboxer: Vengeance (2016, starring Dave Bautista and Jean-Claude Van Damme) and Hard Target 2 (2016, starring Scott Adkins and Rhona Mitra). We reflect on the glory of the original Kickboxer (1989), how we miss the greasy mulleted Van Damme punching out rattlesnakes, and how this is Scott Adkins’ (Ninja: Shadow of a Tear, The Expendables 2, Universal Solder: Day of Reckoning, El Gringo, Assassination Games) least likable role maybe ever. We hope you enjoy, and if you want to hear more about Van Damme check out our Van Damme-Mania podcast episode.
We answer the tough questions in this podcast! For example…
“How do alcoholics stay in such good shape?”
“Is Dave Bautista actually more Asian than the original Tong Po?”
“How (and why) did they already make the sequel Kickboxer: Retaliation?”
“What’s with all the doves?”
“Why in the world was the movie titled Hard Target 2?”
