Triple bill of action films starring Jean Claude Van Damme. 'Street Fighter' (1994) is a live action spin-off from the beat-'em-up computer game. Van Damme stars as Colonel William F Guile, the man in charge of an attempt to rescue a group of hostages held by the evil warlord General M Bison (Raul Julia, in his last screen role). Guile's sidekicks include Officer Cammy (Kylie Minogue), snooping TV journalist Chun-Li-Zang and a host of characters familiar from the game. In 'Desert Heat' (1999), Van Damme plays Eddie Lomax, a tortured loner who travels to an abandoned desert highway, preparing to end his life. However, his plans are interrupted when he is attacked by a gang of ruthless cycle thugs, who steal his prized motorbike and leave him for dead. He is then saved by a mysterious figure from his past and, with his will to live now miraculously restored, sets out to take his revenge. 'Knock Off' (1998) is set in Hong Kong during the 1997 handover to China. Van Damme stars as Marcus Ray, a CIA agent caught up in a Russian plot to bombard America with thousands of tiny bombs smuggled into the country via Hong Kong.
