Reflect back to when macho action heroes dominated cinema: Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Jean Claude Van Damme. Dazzler Media’s The Bouncer has one of those…the most affordable one.
We haven’t seen Mr. Van Damme in quite a while, but he’s returned for this movie, and despite his age he’s willing to take on the same archetype. He stars as a gruff nightclub bouncer named Lukas, who winds up getting himself arrested and losing custody of his eight-year-old daughter. You might think there are some dilemmas you CAN’T just punch you way out of, but you’d be wrong: Lukas has the opportunity to get his daughter back IF he works with Interpol to bring down a crime lord in Belgium. Lukas readies his knuckles.
The Bouncer was directed by Julien Leclercq (The Assault, The Crew). It’ll be made available on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital on the same day….April 8.
In The Bouncer, Jean-Claude Van Damme stars as Lukas, a tough nightclub bouncer struggling to raise his 8-year-old daughter. One day, Lukas loses control during an altercation with a client and ends up in jail, while his daughter is taken away from him. Things take an unexpected turn when Interpol recruits Lukas to bring down a Dutch ringleader operating from Belgium in exchange for his daughter’s custody.
