|“||I don't get angry. I'm a professional.||„|
|~ Van Cleef to Fouchon.|
Pik Van Cleaf is the secondary antagonist in the 1993 film Hard Target.
Pik Van Cleaf is a sadistic man who works for Emil Fouchon, the main antagonist of the film, and participates in his hobby of hunting and killing men. Van Cleaf seems to be the one who organizes the hunts, who will participate in them and who will be hunted. When a former Force Recon Marine named Chance Boudreaux becomes interested in Fouchon and his activities, Fouchon, Van Cleaf and a team of mercenaries hunt him down and attempt to kill him.
At a large abandoned warehouse, a huge gunfight ensues in which Boudreaux kills all of Fouchon's men one by one. Van Cleaf fires at Boudreaux but he avoids this by diving through a nearby window, then slides under a table before shooting Van Cleaf repeatedly in the chest with two guns, to his death.
- Van Cleaf's last name is a reference to Western actor Lee Van Cleef, who portrays Angel Eyes, the sadistic main antagonist in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
