Enemies Closer
Why are action movies ashamed to be action movies? It’s as if one day, Hollywood figured they could teach actors how to kick better than they could teach martial artists how to act, turning a legion of would-be dramatic leading men into shit-kickers. The era of Schwarzenegger, Stallone and Willis is over, replaced by the legion of Harry Potters and Percy Jacksons who can stand still as computer generated effects fly from their hands, or the Jason Bournes who can flail and wave their arms around as the camera shakes to create the illusion of violence. In that spirit, there is this weekend’s “Enemies Closer,” which twenty years ago would have starred Jean-Claude Van Damme. The good news is, he’s still in it. The bad news: the movie stars Tom Everett Scott.

Enemies Closer Jean Claude Van Damme Tom Everett Scott
There are two things that can be said about the trailer for Jean-Claude Van Damme’s “Enemies Closer.” First of all, his hair is absolutely fabulous, somehow managing to perfectly capture the essence of his smug-crazy-drug dealer character. Secondly, it has Orlando Jones and that’s notable for the fact that we haven’t seen Orlando Jones in years. (Those Sprite commercials used to light up our lives, it’s a shame he hasn’t been as prolific as we thought he’d be.) But don't take our word for it, journey down below to check out the incredible trailer for “Enemies Closer.”
