Ben Archer – Wake Of Death (2004) Van Damme plays retired gangster Ben Archer, who after providing shelter to a Chinese immigrant child is drawn back into the criminal world following a shootout with misinformed triads.

Kurt Sloane – Kickboxer (1989) Kurt Sloan is the corner-man for his brother, U.S. kickboxing champion Eric Sloan. When Kurt witnesses his brother become maliciously paralyzed in the ring by Thailand champion Tong Po, Kurt vows revenge.
