Or actually, the guy who is all “Taken” in the new movie “Six Bullets” is Joe Flanigan (of “Stargate: Atlantis” fame), but it’s Jean-Claude Van Damme’s gun-for-hire character who seems to be running around kicking all the asses. I’m guessing Flanigan gets to throw down a time or two, though you wouldn’t know it from the trailer. “Six Bullets” (a rather strange title, that) is due out on DVD August 21, 2012 from Sony Pictures. No idea if it’ll also be available on Blu-ray, though studios are starting to skimp on that now on titles they don’t expect to do a lot of business with. Veteran mercenary Samson Gaul (Jean-Claude Van Damme) knows that in the heat of battle, every bullet counts. He retired from combat when his actions resulted in the deaths of helpless victims, but now he’s the last hope for a desperate father. »
Sony Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for "Six Bullets" action thriller, starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Joe Flanigan ("Stargate: Atlantis"). Check it out below. Plot: Veteran mercenary Samson Gaul (Van Damme) retired from combat when his actions resulted in the deaths of helpless victims, but now he's the last hope for a desperate father. Mma fighter Andrew Fayden (Joe Flanigan) knows how to fight, but alone he's unprepared to navigate the corrupt streets of a foreign city to find his kidnapped daughter. Together, these warriors will stop at nothing to tear apart a vile network of criminals that prey upon the innocent. The new movie is directed by Ernie Barbarash (Assassination Games) and will appear in stores on DVD on August 21st. Trailer: »
If you've been aching for some good old Jean-Claude Van Damme action, here's a chance to get your fix while you're waiting for "The Expendables 2." The Muscles from Brussels shows off some serious skills in this trailer for "Six Bullets," a direct-to-dvd movie that will hit the shelves August 21st.
When Andrew Fayden's daughter is kidnapped, he goes to the best in the kid-rescuing biz, Samson Gaul (Jcvd). The ex-mercenary has the skills to pay the bills, and luckily Fayden (Joe Flanigan) is a former Mma fighter with a sweet tribal neck tattoo, so between them no butt goes unkicked during their search for Becky (Charlotte Beaumont).
"Six Bullets" leans on the real problem of human trafficking in Eastern Europe for the plot, which reminds us of another angry papa bear with "a very particular set of skills" and a kidnapped daughter.
"Finding people, it's what I do," Samson says with an air of melancholy. »
