Inferno (released in the United Kingdom as Desert Heat) is a 1999 American action film directed by John G. Avildsen, and starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, Danny Trejo and Pat Morita. This was the last film directed by Avildsen, before his death in 2017.
Eddie Lomax (Van Damme) is a veteran soldier sick of life, wandering the desert looking for a reason to die. An incident with a few thugs from the nearby town who steal Eddie's motorbike and beat him almost to death, starts in Eddie a flame for revenge. Helped by Mr. Early, and some other good fellows, Eddie is out for vengeance.
This film is a remake of and a self-conscious tribute to Yojimbo (1961) by Akira Kurosawa.
