Triple bill of Jean Claude Van Damme action heavy-hitters; 'Derailed' (2002) stars Van Damme as agent Kristoff. A train rockets across Eastern Europe and on board are Kristoff and Galina (Laura Harring), a beautiful high-tech thief. Holding the passengers hostage are a band of terrorists who have come to steal the bioweapon on board. With the train on a collision course for danger, Kristoff becomes a one-man army, taking on the terrorists and trying to save the lives of everyone on board. In 'Legionnaire' (1999) it's 1924 and boxer Alain Lefevre (Van Damme) has just won a heavily-wagered bout. Unfortunately two people are left dead at the end of the fight, so Lefevre must flee, with both the authorities and the mob on his tail. Desperate to escape, he abandons his old identity and joins the French Foreign Legion - a decision that will change his life. In 'Desert Heat' (1999) Eddie Lomax (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is 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.
