Hard Target

Hard Target ★★½

1993 John Woo knew exactly what 2020 Quarantine Me wants: Jean Claude Van Damme in Mom jeans and a greasy mullet doing roundhouse kicks and punching snakes, a sizzling blues-guitar riff deployed as punctuation for every stunt or joke, a warehouse full of cooing doves and giant, combustible Mardi Gras floats, and Wilford Brimley, speaking Cajun, drinking hooch, and riding horseback through the bayou while a boobytrapped barn explodes behind him in slow motion.
