JCVD

Jean-Claude Van Damme
Directed by Mabrouk El Mechri
Belgium . Drama-Crime-Comedy . 2008
♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ – This is not a regular Van Damme movie.  And most importantly, this is not the same ass kicking Van Damme we’re used to seeing in his Action movies.  He plays himself in a fictional story which actually has a lot of non-fictional emotions/experiences tied together.  This movie is in French, so you don’t have to worry about the funny accent either.  This is by far his best performance (yes, acting-performance) and movie to date.  There are handful of comical elements throughout the movie as well which are mostly him making fun of himself.  Whether you are Van Damme’s fan or not, if you appreciate a good movie then you should definitely check this out… [ imdb ]
