Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren crew as much as escape of a CIA black web site in a clip from their new movie, Black Water. The Nineteen Eighties/’90s action movie stars are removed from strangers onscreen, having beforehand appeared in a trio of Common Soldier movies collectively (together with, the unique 1992 entry) and technically shared the display screen in The Expendables 2. Neither of them have slowed down their tempo in recent times both, with their initiatives of late starting from Kickboxer reboots to Sharknado sequels and even a visitor function on Arrow for Lundgren.
The directorial debut for longtime cinematographer Pasha Patriki, Black Water was scripted by Van Damme’s 6 Bullets author Chad Regulation and can start enjoying in theaters close to the top of this month. Van Damme stars within the movie as Wheeler, a deep cowl operative who finds himself imprisoned on an underwater CIA black ops web site (one which takes on the type of a submarine) after a mission gone improper. With no the place else to show, Wheeler seeks assist from Marco (Lundgren), a fellow prisoner and harmful man who may simply maintain the important thing to their escape.
In Display Rant‘s unique Black Water clip from Saban Movies, Wheeler and Marco correctly meet for the primary time and strike a deal to work collectively and escape of their sub-prison. Serving because the third wheel right here is Jasmine Waltz as Cassie Taylor, a CIA agent who joins forces with Wheeler after discovering out what his actual mission is and the way he ended up on this black web site to start with. As such, it falls to the younger agent and her gruff-voiced, muscle-bound “associates” to take down the actual villains aboard their shifting jail.
Black Water is one among a number of movies that Lundgren has popping out this 12 months, together with the sequel Creed II (the place he reprise his Rocky IV function as Ivan Drago) and the Aquaman solo movie, during which Lundgren performs the underwater King Nereus. Lundgren can also be anticipated to reprise his function as “Expendable” Gunner Jensen early subsequent 12 months, when Expendables 4 begins manufacturing. Van Damme is not fairly so busy by comparability, however has a pair of low-budget efforts (We Die Younger and The Bouncer) set to reach this 12 months, along with Black Water.
B-movies that pair up ’80s/’90s action stars are virtually a style unto themselves these days and, by the look of it, Black Water ought to please those that have a gentle spot for that taste of tacky action fare. The movie additional begs comparability to an pleasant B-movie romp like Escape Plan, when it comes to each its premise and the best way it that unites two getting old robust guys for some old skool knuckle-brained escapism. Fittingly sufficient, Escape Plan‘s personal sequel, Escape Plan 2: Hades, will probably be arriving On Demand the identical day that Black Water does this month. Double function, anybody?
