Netflix streaming platform has presented a trailer for the comedy action movie The Last Mercenary. This is the first Netflix's project that was almost completely shot in Kyiv. The Ukrainian capital has stopped traffic for more than two weeks for the sake of filming this movie. The video was released on the Youtube channel of Netflix.
The main role in the picture was played by the action star Jean-Claude Van Damme. According to the plot, he got the role of an ex-intelligence agent who comes to France to save his son, with whom he had not communicated for a long time. The young man is unfairly accused of arms and human trafficking. This was caused by the mistake of an overly diligent bureaucrat at the behest of the mafia. The protagonist will have to fight both the state and crime. The picture will be released on Netflix on July 30.
It is reported that the director of The Last Mercenary David Sharon wanted to give his picture the spirit of the militants of the 80's and 90's, which is why he turned to Van Damme. Some of the scenes of the film were shot in Paris for authenticity.
As it was reported, for the first time in history, Netflix shot its film in Ukraine. The Last Mercenary movie will have Jean-Claude Van Damme and Alban Ivanov as main actors.
