Box set of films starring 'The Muscles From Brussels'. 'No Retreat, No Surrender' (1985) is a martial arts action-fest in which Jean Claude Van-Damme plays the feared Kung Fu bully 'Ivan the Terrible'. Against all the odds, the central character Jason (Kurt McKinney) is inspired by the ghost of Bruce Lee to get himself in shape and prepare for victory in the fight of his life against the aforementioned Ivan. In 'The Quest' (1996), set in 1920s Tibet, the monks of the Lost City invite fighters from around the world to compete in the Ghang-gheng for a golden statue of a dragon. New York thief Chris Dubois (Van Damme) is determined to get his hands on the statue, and teams up with disreputable pirate Lord Edgar Dobbs (Roger 'eyebrows' Moore) to obtain it. In order to enter the competition, Dubois must first overcome the reigning champion, Maxie Devine (Jack McGee). Acclaimed Hong Kong action director John Woo's first Hollywood film, 'Hard Target' (1993), attempts to construct a 'running man' thriller out of a collection of explosions and stunts. 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. In 'Sudden Death' (1995), Darren McCord (Van Damme) must rescue his little girl from terrorists who have interrupted the Stanley Cup ice hockey final. The bad guys threaten to blow everybody up unless they get a billion dollars from the treasury by the end of the game. McCord has his work cut out if he's going to stop the explosion and retrieve his child before that final buzzer.
