Blood on the Canvas, son! This new series of articles will focus on some of the best combat sport fights in film/TV history. I’m not talking about back alley brawls, I mean those tournament-of-blood smackdowns that get your heart pumping and leave you speechless due to the sheer awesomeness of it all. This week we’ll be looking at some powerful kicks yo! In Bloodsport, Frank Dux (Jean-Claude Van Damme) puts a hurtin’ to everyone he comes up against in the underground fighting tournament, the Kumite. In the film’s climactic final fight, JCVD goes up against Bolo Yeung, another renowned martial artist. But Bolo’s not above fighting dirty, which he shows when he throws blinding dust into Dux’s eyes. This brawl is one of JCVD’s most celebrated, thanks, in no small part, to his crazy jump-kicking action. Check out the fight below.
This is the Action Flick Chick, and you’ve just been kicked in the ass!
