Top 10 Villains from Jean Claude Van Damme's Films
Also there is the fact that I am biased for theatrical JCVD films compared to straight to DVD JCVD. But I pushed onward and came up with the list below. Each of these uber villains are defeated in a climactic battle of spinkicks, punches and HGH fueled mega battles which makes all these super evil doers much more memorable.
On to the list!
Top 10 Villains from Jean Claude Van Damme Movies
From: Street Fighter
Van Damme played Guile as we know and it's hard to take him seriously playing the Joe with his UN centric accent.
But the late Raul Julia, complete in the video game Bison costume is pretty hilarious as the meglomaniacal Bison. He spews out awful dialogue and gets his ass whupped by the scissor spinkicks of Guile.
Remember this is the movie where the hot Aussie singer Kylie Minogue plays Cammy!
Check out the final battle scene.
JCVD has made alot of movies where he plays an evil or asshole version of himself. So you have to rank Garrotte, a serial killer with Ray Ban sunglasses, long hair and a leather coat as the greatest "twin" JCVD has played as a villain. Garrotte kills women and kids and sets them on fire. Damn.
Replicant was the first of many STV Van Damme flicks and it's an actual good film.
The final battle scene as the replicant battles his original evil self is awesome.
Check out the final battle scene.
8.) Senator Aaron McComb
Ahh the evil politician. The senator goes to great lengths to manipulate the space/time continuum so he can become President of the US. Sen. McComb bribes and kills and manipulates everybody in the Time Enforcement Commission but when he threatens Sloane, that's when Max Walker draws the line.
His death is by far one of the best in any JCVD films as Walker tells the Senator:
"Same matter can't occupy same space"
See the result by heading here. (3:48 in)
7.) Emil Fouchon
From: Hard Target
Should Emil Fouchon be ranked higher? Maybe. He's more eviler than many of the others on this list as he kills homeless war veterans for sport. He even looks cooler with doves flying and in double gun wielding slo mo action scenes.
He's a downright, evil douchebag but thanks to Chance, he doesn't stand a -...I was about to make a bad pun. Sorry.
"Hunting season is over"
Check out all the action scenes here.
Ahh yes. The old WTF spot on this list. I threw a curveball with this one right?
Well in JCVD he recites a solid 7 min speech about his utter self destruction from women, drugs and his character. This results in his outcast from the Hollywood system and the rise of straight to DVD, filmed in Bulgaria Van Damme.
And you can't deny the fact that he, himself was his biggest enemy in JCVD. Not the bank robbers or the media or the cops.
Check out the monologue here.
5.) The Sandman
From: Death Warrant
A psycho if there ever was one. He is the muscle behind the illegal human organ harvesting at one Harrison Penitentiary.
"Welcome to hell!"
Though its hard to believe the other prisoners just allowed him to leave after killing the Sandman.
The final battle scene is awesome.
Well it's a co #4 on this one. Cynthia is the evil bitch behind the illegal human fighting tournaments and Atilla is the ringer they bring in to take down Lionheart.
We're an equal opportunity villain lister here at the jaded viewer, so Cynthia's evil multi millionaire human cock fighting investment can't be ignored.
Because Leo couldn't "choke a bitch", he had to go all spinkicky on Atila on a tennis court.
See the end right here.
3.) Andrew Scott/GR13
From: Universal Soldier
You knew Dolph was gonna be on this list. And as Andrew Scott aka GR13, he's one of the most sympathetic characters as shit, he's fuckin dead and got reanimated.
But then he goes all postal and and seeks retribution.
Soldiers who go all rampagy get ranked high here and as he's a professional soldier with high tech weaponry, he's more bad ass than anybody on this list.
"Are we having fun yet?"
Check out the trailer.
2.) Tong Po
Tong Po goes for the movie juggular as he paralyzes Kurt Sloane's brother Eric. Don't mess with fuckin family. Of course this leads to an awesome 80s training montage and a final epic, to the death fight scene. A couple of spinkicks later, Tong Po is knocked the fuck out.
But why is Tong Po ranked so high? Because he actually KILLED Kurt and Eric Sloane at the beginning of Kickboxer 2!!!!
(well off screen of course).
That fact alone jumps him to #2 as he technically won.
Watch the trailer.
1.) Chong Li
Chong Li was the obvious choice for the #1 Van Damme villain. He threatens Dux, comatoses Ray Jackson, kills one of the fighter and *gasp* dishonors the Kokoruki elders and their traditions. And he fuckin cheats.
The resume speaks for himself.
And the final fight is an epic Van Damme action sequence for the ages. You just can't top it.
Chong Li is cocky, egotistical and brutal. What more do you want? And I think he played a North Korean.
Hey the brick didn't hit back but Dux made you say uncle. So there.
Here are the Top 10 Scenes in Bloodsport.
This list has some good evil villains from Van Damme movies too but the rankings are way off in my opinion. But it includes a couple of characters I have left off.
Next up, sidekicks edition. Stay tuned!
