Between his tax problems and his legal battle with his wife for the custody of his daughter, these are hard times for the action movie star Jean-Claude Van Damme who finds that even Steven Seagal has pinched a role from him!
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
This is such a curious piece of something, and definitely not a good something. To me, it will always prevail as a statement of what might happen if you choose to dedicate your life to something you were never meant to do in the first place. Mr. Van Damme could have been a great martial arts instructor, but nooo... he wanted to do better!!. Now look at what your life has come to.
I really love this, so rich and touching, authentic while full of other film references.. The theme concerns the duality of human face.. Very well composed film, and I have to say I miss TIFF midnight madness, I would love to have watched JCVD there
JCVD functions at a much higher, more enlightened plane than his other 'action hero' counterparts (seems to not be a globalist puppet as per recent ramblings). This intelligence is on display here with moments of poignancy but remains unfocused - a collection of musings and overdone shots.
