Jean-Claude Van Damme action triple-bill. In 'Hard Target' (1993), John Woo's first Hollywood film, Cajun sailor Chance Boudreaux (Van Damme) reluctantly comes to the aid of a female lawyer (Yancy Butler) who is searching for her missing father, a Vietnam veteran. In the course of their search the pair encounter a group of wealthy businessmen, who amuse themselves in the Louisiana swamps by hunting down the homeless. Set in Hong Kong during the 1997 handover to China, 'Knock Off' (1998) finds Van Damme in the role of Marcus Ray, a CIA agent caught up in a Russian plot to bombard America with thousands of tiny bombs smuggled into the country via the newly-Communist colony. Finally, in 'Nowhere to Run' (1993), escaped convict Sam Gillen (Van Damme) is given shelter in the barn of beautiful farm-owning widow Clydie (Rosanna Arquette). A merciless developer (Joss Ackland) is trying to force Clydie off the land, in order to buy it, build there and make a fortune. Sam helps Clydie fight off the developer and his hired killers.
