Behind the Scenes of JCVD’s ‘Swelter’

Swelter is sounding like it might be one of Jean-Claude Van Damme’s best films with a very different kind of role for him; hopefully we get to see a full trailer soon but for now this behind the scenes look will suffice.

The film is written and directed by Keith Parmer with a cast that includes Lennie James, Alfred Molina, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Grant Bowler, Freya Tingley, Daniele Favilli and Josh Henderson.

“Swelter” is the story of the most notorious robbery in Las Vegas history. Five men, nicknamed the Rat Pack, hit the Luxor Casino for over one hundred million dollars. Four of the men are soon captured, while one barely escapes. Ten years later, after blasting their way out of a maximum-security prison, the four jailed members of the Rat Pack are hot on the trail of their former accomplice and the remaining ten million in stolen cash. The trail leads them to a dying desert town less than a hundred miles from the scene of the crime where they find their former partner is not the man he once was…he’s become a law-abiding sheriff without any memory of his past. The sheriff must now remember his violent history in order to protect all that he holds dear.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone.
