What decade am I in? I feel like I just took a step 20 years into the past. Our favorite Belgian Jean-Claude Van Damme is starring in an upcoming action film entitled, The Eagle Path. I know it sounds deep, and the recently released trailer for it makes sure it looks as melodramatic as possible. Van Damme stars as Frenchy (yeah, I know) a taxi driver who happens to be a former soldier and mercenary. Convenient, eh? One night he picks up a female passenger in his cab who ends up changing his life forever.
Check out the trailer after the jump.
I can honestly say besides Van Damme, I don’t recognize any of these actors. Did they really just show someone getting a bicycle thrown at them? Was there a paralyzed guy releasing some serious ammo from a shotgun? This trailer is hilarious, and takes me back to my youth when I was completely obsessed with these types of action movies. I will say that I was a bit disappointed that they didn’t show Van Damme do his signature split kick in mid-air. It always shows up in some form or fashion in all of his movies, you know it’s true.
What do you think of Van Damme’s latest? Does it take you back to the good old days?
