Overview

Jean-Claude Van Damme plays himself in this meta-crime comedy that finds him garnering mores headlines than he's had in years after stumbling into an in-progress bank heist. Down and out, with only straight-to-DVD titles under his belt and a recent job lost out to fellow has-been Steven Seagal, the aging action star returns to Belgium a broken man fresh from losing a custody case for his daughter in Hollywood. Upon his arrival, the bad news continues with a disastrous ATM encounter that leads him into the bank and straight into a robbery situation, for which he's about to be blamed. Soon, crowds grow outside on the street, with the cops quick to point the finger at him and his fans cheering for his release. The film garnered a cult following during its festival run and awarded Van Damme his first theatrical release in the States in almost a decade.

    Van Damme is Still Killer!

    4.5 out of 5

    Jean-Claude Van Damme-international movie star.

    Jean-Claude Van Damme-the Muscles from Brussels.

    Jean-Claude Van Damme-loved by millions

    Jean-Claude Van Damme-criminal?

    It's a post office hostage situation and Van Damme is suspected to be the guy running the show. He talks to the cops, tells them what he wants, is alone inside with the hostages-he's got guilty written all over him.

    Except not all is what it seems and Van Damme-hero to all-is having the worst day of his life. Not only did he lose custody of his daughter, he's broke, had no new movie on the horizon and now he's getting framed taking a post office with a built-in bank hostage.

    I just finished watching this and I'm still soaking it in. I've seen most of Van Damme's movies and JCVD is nothing like any of them. This isn't an action movie despite it starting that way. This is a drama. Big time, and Van Damme proves here he is way more than just muscles, high kicks, and guns. This Van Damme is raw, brutally honest, caring and just downright human. No eight-foot-tall-and-bullet-proof karate guy here. This is the story about Van Damme the man (he goes by his own name in the movie), one with heart, potent emotion and a performance that should have been nominated for an Oscar. Seriously.

    Van Damme's not listed in the movie's writing credits, but there's a point in the movie where he talks to the camera about life, Hollywood, the ups and downs and simply apologizes for the mistakes he's made in real life to those he knows and to those, like us, he doesn't. Just phenomenal.

    My only little thing was the story seemed to move slowly in parts, but, hey, that could just be me.

    And the ending . . . man, it was just perfect. I really liked how they presented it, especially the climatic scene between Van Damme and the bad guys. To go any other way would have completely ruined the movie, but this was handled nicely. Good on them.

    The sepia coloring used throughout the film added a wonderful grittiness to it, enhancing the drama and its foreign and rustic atmosphere.

    This is a Van Damme movie you've never seen before. This is a Van Damme you've never seen before.

    You need to see this.
