Yea its true, ive seen just about every Sean Claud movie that has been shown on Cable TV and he does use stunt doubles. Some of his movies are cheesy, wait most of them are!

Street Fighter
Double Impact
Double Team
Legionnare

Bahah... oh well, Martial Arts B movies are still fun to watch..

I always look forward to Van Damme week on USA! Ive liked Jean Claude since I was little, and Im loyal, lol. One time, I watched his movies so often, that I started speaking with a belgian accent, and it was never on purpose either. Aside from the bad acting, he is still a good martial artist. Maybe that acting is because he learned to speak english by watching the Flintstones. *shrugs*

I dont get it, if he's not doing his own action; what exactly is he getting paid for? I mean - he's not exactly the best of actors!

...um, Pamela Lee isn't either (a good actress), so what is she getting paid for
He's got a good set of pecs and he can kick (and kick high I might add!)
I saw the movie last night ... action scenes were highly unbelieveable ... like at the end when VanDamme shoots the guy and he blows back like 20 feet in mid air ...

lots of martial arts stars do not do their own stunts

chuck norris
don wilson
jet li

all use stunt doubles for dangerous scenes it is to big of a risk for the studio to allow them to risk injury

chuck norris even used a double during the last 2 seasons of walker for some martial arts fight scenes
