The 11 Cheesiest Movie Workout Montages
The training sequences that made us laugh more than they pumped us up.
(1988)Arguably one of the greatest, and cheesiest, martial arts movies of all time, Jean-Claude Van Damme's debut leading role pulls no montage punches. Frank Dux (Van Damme) is trained in the art of Ninjitsu by Senzo Tanaka (Roy Chiao) and soon enters the Kumite tournament in Hong Kong to face the deadly defending champion Chong Li (Bolo Yeung). Van Damme's montage puts him through the proverbial ringer as he is thrown, beaten, thrown some more, beaten some more, serves tea blindfolded and uses a pulley system to...well, you know the rest. Follow any one of Van Damme's movie montages and you'll be fully prepared to cheesekick the bad guys right into next week.
