Van Damme in Double Impact 2

We're big fans of old school action movies here - anything with Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Dolph, Seagal or Mel Gibson is what we're talking about, but the one action guy we enjoy the most is Jean-Claude Van Damme.

We love all his early stuff like Kickboxer, A.W.O.L, Death Warrant and Hard Target, but we consider Double Impact to be Van Damme's finest work.

Alex and Chad Wagner (above) are two twin brothers who were separated when they were babies after the brutal killing of their parents by the Hong Kong Triads. They are brought back together 25 years later by their Uncle Frankie - the man who saved them from a horrific death.

Together they set out to kill the men who ordered their parents' death - Triad boss Raymond Zhang and their father's malicious business partner Nigel Griffith, and take back the inheritance these men stole from them -  the Victoria Harbour Tunnel.

Well now Chad and Alex are back in Double Impact 2. This is another dual role for Van Damme so there'll be double the Van Dammage. A teaser poster is below...

There's a rumour Bolo Yeung will be in this film - we don't know how, must be some reason like how Dolph Lundgren appeared in Universal Soldier: Regeneration. We don't know if there'll be a strong female adversary like in the first film - but what actresses are out there with legs that could kick the doors off a Land Rover?

More to follow - if Double Impact 2 is news to you, then you heard it here first.
