Poor Bastards of Cinema: Knock Off

There are many crimes that someone can commit.  In Knock Off, a man commits the ultimate crime: cheating in a Hand Cart Race!

In this early scene, a friend of Van Damme's is in a race.  He cheats by having a dead ringer of himself and a kid- in place of a midget- finish the race for him.
You evil bastard!  You're going to get what you deserve!
Moments later, a van full of criminals grabs the guy.  Karma is a bitch!
Actually, they grab him because they think he's the actual person in the race.  What are you going to do now that you realize the error?

You're just going to shoot him still, huh?  I see.
Seriously, what was the point of killing this guy?  He doesn't even realize what the overall plot here that they have in mind.  He's just some guy hired to cheat in a race.  Damn!

Next up, a train full of people are doomed to die.  It's all the film's heroine's fault too!  Stay tuned...
