A new trailer for the upcoming action film Black Water was released, featuring 80’s action stars Jean Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren teaming up together to escape a military submarine.
The movie looks like a solid B-movie action film that hearkens back to the old days, when men were men, women were hot, and testosterone wasn’t considered “toxic”.
The plot is rather simple: a black ops group captures Jean Claude and begins interrogating him. Before they can get any info out of him he manages to kill a man with a syringe, commandeer a pistol, break through the glass and make an escape into the sub.
In order to fully escape, however, he needs the help of an old comrade… Dolph Lundgren. Instead of being antagonist they’re buddying up this time around, which is kind of rare. You can check out the trailer below for Black Water below, courtesy of One Media.
I’m guessing this is an older film that was on the shelf for a while because Van Damme looks considerably younger here than he does in the movie Lukas. So this was likely filmed a while back and it’s only just now making its way to streaming services and DVD and Blu-ray.
Anyway, the action here looks very contained but well directed…. well, based on the little that we get to see.
Van Damme looks like he’s in good fighting form, similar to how he was portrayed in the highly underrated Universal Soldier: Regeneration.
Also, it’s nice to see Patrick Kilpatrick reuniting with Van Damme after 28 years when they were antagonists in the 1990 flick, Death Warrant. Kilpatrick played the iconic villain “The Sandman” in Death Warrant.
As for Black Water… it seems to contain the kind of tightly shot, action-oriented atmosphere that action fans have been craving from media lately. There also appears to be a healthy dose of T&A, which is always good. In short, this is not a film that will appeal to soy boys.
Black Water appears to be available in various regions already, so you’ll likely need to check around digital distributors to see if it’s available in your neck of the woods.
