JCVD vs. Mickey Rourke: Double Team

Double Team is one of Jean-Claude Van Damme’s lamer films but it didn’t prevent me from thoroughly enjoying it in the cinema when it was first released and I still watch it every so often.

The highlight of course was Mickey Rourke’s villain Stavros who I actually felt pretty bad for seeing as his son was killed so you could see his motivation.

One of the most entertaining moments of the film was the climactic fight scene between Rourke and JCVD with Stavros coming to an explosive end.

Has anyone ever tried lifting a bath as part of workout after watching this movie?

Check it out below.
