Scene: Penguin Fight
|Jean Claude Van Damme gives his most over the top fight performance with
a female terrorist dressed up in a penguin costume. Van Damme, in the search for his
missing daughter, finds himself in a kitchen and in front of an elevator that leads to the
vice president's box seats. He meets a penguin mascot whom he thinks is his friend, trying
to help him look for his daughter. Naturally, he is tipped off that something is amiss
when he discovers one of his daughter's personal items lying on the elevator floor. Before
the penguin (I mean, terrorist) can kill him behind his back, he turns around and a fight
of ground breaking proportions ensues:
- Notice how long it takes Van Damme to take down this terrorist. Normally, Van Damme
makes short work of his enemies, with either his trademark crotch punch or flying kick.
This fight lasts for at least 2 full minutes.
- The terrorist keeps her costume on the entire time, and is able to fight even with the
penguin mask impairing her vision.
- Take special note of the moment that Van Damme is driving the mascot's head into an
overhead fan. An eye on the costume head is mangled, and the penguin costume itself
appears to exclaim "Why Me???".
- See how elegant the penguin looks while using Judo kicks and how Van Damme experiences BIM as a result.
