Kicking his way back to the screen is action star Jean-Claude Van Damme in the official trailer for The Last Mercenary, directed by David Charhon from a script co-written with Ismaël Sy Savané.
A mysterious former secret service agent must urgently return to France when his estranged son is falsely accused of arms and drug trafficking by the government, following a blunder by an overzealous bureaucrat and a mafia operation.
Consider this your latest invitation to what looks to be in another in a string of performances by a veteran action star who’s really come into himself in just over a decade. Talk about longevity.
The Last Mercenary also stars Alban Ivanov, Assa Sylla, Samir Decazza, Patrick Timsit, Eric Judor and Miou-Miou, and launches on Netflix on July 30.
