The Last Mercenary

Jean-Claude Van Damme is back in this slightly tongue-in-cheek action film ode to the '90s action star. JCVD plays a mysterious former secret service agent who must urgently return to France when his estranged son is falsely accused of arms and drug trafficking by the government.

It’s nice to see that the Muscles from Brussels is not only self-aware, but also sharp enough whenever he has to take a baby step or two beyond his own shadow.

The fight scenes have wit and Van Damme delivers his lines with just the right amount of weary good humor.

If you're looking for light, silly action fun, you could do worse...

The Last Mercenary has bounding energy and a fun take on... Jean-Claude Van Damme's past exploits... but the humour is way more miss than hit and the actual nuts-and-bolts spy plot is a trudge.

Nothing here really works, and some of the jokes... fall to a cringe-worthy level.

The kickboxing legend comes alive in a few fight scenes, but this maladroit caper labours under the delusion that he's an actor.

The Last Mercenary is silly (and) self-aware to a fault... making for a breezy watch anchored by Jean-Claude Van Damme’s very enjoyable presence.
