JCVD’s Until Death Has a Steelbook

A new piece Jean-Claude Van Damme news is always welcome and his underrated film Until Death has a Steelbook release in Germany.

It doesn’t look like a Blu-ray sadly but two DVDs; normally this wouldn’t be particularly exciting, however I’m intrigued that the film apparently will come in two versions where one has an alternate ending not seen in the US.

The film surprised me by how dark it was and respect is due to Van Damme for not being afraid to take risks when it comes to movie roles.

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS: Anthony Stowe (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is a drug-addicted detective teetering on the edge. He shows little regard for his fellow cops, ratting out a respected veteran who takes him to task shortly before he’s fired. All Stowe cares about is putting away drug-dealing former cop Callahan (Stephen Rea), who is taking over New Orleans’ underworld. But Callahan’s henchman (Stephen Lord) puts Stowe in a coma, and after he awakens, he realizes it’s more important to redeem himself and get off drugs.

This new steelbook will also come with a bonus copy of Monaco Forever where JCVD had one of his first roles as “Gay Karate Man”… yes that was indeed the title.

The DVD is Region 2 and is available now on Amazon.

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. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
