Retrospective 07 – Maximum Risk, Double Team, Knock Off

Here’s a short teaser of our brand new Patreon-exclusive episode of Uncut Gems Retrospectives, a monthly series where we pick a handful of movies tied around a specific theme, a filmmaker or an actor and have an honest chat about them. This month we are tying our retrospective to the A-Woo-Gust series currently ongoing on our regular show, where we devoted the month of August to talk about John Woo’s Hollywood movies. In here, we decided to round up three movies starring Jean-Claude Van Damme directed by Hong Kong filmmakers. Thus, we chose Maximum RiskDouble Team and Knock Off. Over the course of this conversation you will hear us dive deep into JCVD’s career, transplanting Hong Kong cinema into Hollywood, the allure of Rob Schneider, the post-Space Jam era of hiring high profile athletes to star in action movies and more!
