JCVD – Review

Posted by in Movies


I just finished watching JCVD, which is a fictional movie about Jean-Claude Van Damme, which stars him as himself.  This is a fantastic movie, the kind I hope he continues to make.  Well crafted, interesting story that is transferred to the screen in a very interesting way.  The basic plot is that Jean-Claude is going through some rough times with movies being taken by Stephen Seagal, losing custody of his daughter, and not getting any good film roles.  This leads him into a bank in Brussels which is being held up, and the hostage situation where the cops think he is the criminal.

I can’t say enough good things about this movie, and it includes some real moments that are touching and insightful.

Rating: Definately see this movie if you have any preconceived notions about Jean-Claude, I think this will change them.
