The Last mercenary is a unique online game based on the story of Jean-Claude Van Damme. The game starts with the mercenary, played by you (as the player), looking for a job in an oil rig in the Middle East. Once you get the job and discover that there are several other conscripts wanting the job as well, you must work to earn your place on the team and prove that you can do what it takes to be a good soldier. I really enjoyed playing as the Last Mercy and discovered that this game had a lot of promise for the future of online PC gaming.
The Last Mercy puts you in the shoes (not the hero, so to speak) of Jean Claude Van Damme as he tries to save his friend during an attempted assassination attempt. Your task is to stop the terrorist responsible for the act and foil his plan to blow up the oil rig. The Last Mercenary follows the story quite closely to the movie, except that it is all narrated online from the perspective of your secret agent. The storyline and voice over performances are top notch and help make The Last Mercy one of the best online games to date. The game also includes several video game like features such as an arm-grab and the classic 'kill x evil aliens' missions. The Last mercenary also has one of the most incredible and memorable cut scenes I have seen in any game.
In The Last Mercy, Van Damme plays the role of a secret agent who is called out to Middle-East to capture a terrorist known as The Dealer. The movie starts by telling the story of Van Damme's early years, which are filled with conflict between his family and the government. As the story progresses, you learn more about Van Damme and his actions towards those villains, and it eventually becomes clear that he is much more than just an action hero. The Last Merciful is filled with incredible and memorable scenes, and the acting is fantastic throughout the whole movie.
As the story unravels, the viewer slowly comes to understand what is going on in Van Damme's life, as well as why he does the things he does and why the people around him don't seem to understand. By the end of the movie, you could call The Last Merciful a coming of age story, as young Jean Claude Van Damme comes to realize that he is much more than an action hero. The Last Merciful is not just a movie about a movie star. It's a film about how young adults should think and how they should view life.
The Last Mercenary also stars Christian Bale as the villainous arms dealer, Arleux and Morgan Freeman as the British intelligence agents, Cloe and Kasseeds as the American agents, and Jason Statham as the bad guy, The Dealer. This is an ensemble cast made up of very well-trained actors who give the movie great depth and believable characters. Watching The Last mercenary is like watching an action movie blended with psychological intrigue, because while there is plenty of action, the movie never loses sight of the fact that Van Damme is a human being with feelings. He makes mistakes, and everyone can sympathize with him on some level.
In The Last mercenary, Ed Hardy gives the world another great anti-hero. He brings the idea of anti-heroines to the big screen, and he gives us another modern-day anti-hero in the making. The Last Merciful is a must-see movie no matter what your age or gender. If you like action, watch this movie. If you like movies with deep philosophical and romantic themes, watch this movie.
