Alain Moussi is certainly following the footsteps of many great martial arts actors before him like Jean-Claude Van Damme, Scott Adkins, Don Wilson, and Mark Dacascos.
After launching his career in stunts, he scored the lead role as Kurt Sloan in the Kickboxer reboot series.
Now, he is the lead actor in the sci-fi martial arts film Jiu Jitsu that has an all-star cast that includes Nicolas Cage, Tony Jaa, Frank Grillo, Rick Yune, Marie Avgeropoulos, and JuJu Chan.
Demitri Logothetis (Kickboxer: Retaliation) directed the film from a script he wrote with Jim McGrath.
Here’s the official synopsis:
When Jake Barnes, a master Jiu Jitsu fighter, refuses to face Brax, an indomitable alien creature, the future of humanity hangs in the balance. Injured and suffering from severe amnesia, Jake is captured by a military squad unequipped to fight the merciless intruder who has descended upon the planet. Jake is rescued by Wylie, and an ancient order of Jiu Jitsu fighters who must help him recover his memory and regain his strength in order to band together and defeat Brax in an epic battle that will determine the fate of mankind.
