Top 5 Jean-Claude Van Damme Movies

I watched a movie with Van Damme the other day and just decided to do this entry. I used to love Jean-Claude Van Damme movies when I was a kid. So here are what I think are the top 5 Van Damme movies.

1) Bloodsport  -  Van Damme enters a full contact tournament and kicks ass. Hell yes.

2) Street Fighter  -  Based off the Capcom video game, Van Damme plays Col. Guile and saves the world against General Bison. Great sarcastic lines from Van Damme and a fun performance from Raul Julia make this a corny, yet fun movie.

3) Sudden Death  -  Van Damme attempts to save the Vice President who is being held hostage by Powers Boothe. And this is all going on during a Pittsburgh Penguins playoff  hockey game. Van Damme kills a bad guy by stabbing him in the throat with a chicken bone. Awesome.

4) Timecop  -  Van Damme plays a cop who travels through time catching criminals. Good action, crappy special effects and more sarcasm from Van Damme.

5) Kickboxer  -  Van Damme attempts to avenge his brother's death when he is paralyzed by a vicious Thai kickboxer. And the final fight, you have your hands wrapped in burlap, dipped in wax and covered in glass. Bad ass!

Honorable Mentions:         The Quest  -  The Expendables 2  -  Double Impact  -  Universal Soldier

And there it is.  My top 5 Jean-Claude Van Damme movies. Just for fun Yes indeed.
