4.0 out of 5 stars Very good prison action/drama July 11 2004
Format:DVD
I'm really sick of reading these negative 2 to 1 star reviews of this film by people who are pissed there are no high flying kicks. HELLO this is NOT a popcorn action film, it's more of a drama with REALISTIC depictions of prison fighting. It's like watching Keanu Reeves in "Something's Gotta Give," a romantic comedy, then being pissed he wasnt busting out guns or kicking people like in the Matrix. Give the movie a bad rating because it fails in some way, NOT because you think it should have more chop-socky fighting.
All that aside, I was very surprised by this film. After the unwatchable "Order" and tear-jerkingly horrendous "Derailed," I had lost hope for Van Damme, but "In Hell" is possibly one of his best films and one of the most effective prison dramas in the last few years. The cinematography and directing is great, thanks to Ringo Lam, a very underrated Hong Kong director, and the acting is very good as well. Van Damme has grown as an actor, and it shows in this film. Also look for a cameo by actor Paulo Tocha(Paco, the arrogant kickboxer from Bloodsport) as Victor.
Van Damme is Kyle, a man jailed in a Russian prison for killing the murderer of his wife. The wardens set up illegal fights inside the prison, and Van Damme struggles to survive inside while maintaining his humanity.
The fights are brutal and VERY realistic. They mirror real fights you would see in the streets or in UFC and other full contact events, which means elements of grappling and ground fighting are heavily utilized. This adds that much more to the realism of the film and shows Van Damme's versatility as a martial artist. In Derailed we saw some Ju-Jitsu and grappling from Van Damme, but he showcases these skills more heavily in this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars The return of the Silence of the Lam April 9 2004
Format:DVD
Van Dammage depicted in a bloodfest, raw with carnage and insanity. If you want a synopsis for this film, you can read any number of reviews below for they all pretty much tell the same story. However, for you doubters, rest-assured, this is NOT a martial arts flick. Van Damme never pretends to be a former world-champ. He's average Joe stuck in purgatory. What separates this film from his others is the uncustomary violence and grotesque display of inhumanity taking place In Hell. He's your friendly neighbor turned savage after the last of his sanity is stolen through careful diligence of the black world around him. His retribution is taken out upon those around him, and be warned that every player in this film eventually winds up a beast, laden with blood. Ringo Lam does another phenomenal job--out-doing Replicant with imagery and action.
No, this is not Bloodsport or Kickboxer. This is humanity dragged to its lowest limits--the bowels of Hell. Van Damme might never win an oscar for acting, but he is forever entrenched within the memory of Hollywood. If you are a Jean-Claude fan or a fan of dark drama, don't pass over this flick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Van Dammage March 27 2004
Format:DVD
I've read some critical reviews of this movie, and I realize the frustration. People who pick up a Van Damme movie expect high-kicking martial arts, and 'In Hell' is not 'Bloodsport'. Naive viewers are inclined to downgrade the effectiveness of this film as a result, but let's try something different. Imagine for a moment that Van Damme is just a regular guy who suffers the agony of hearing his wife being murdered over a telephone line. He snaps--justly so. Now he's in prison. We're not talking an American prison with cable television and internet access. This is a Russian prison where Russians don't take kindly to Americans. The ensuing hour is a bloodbath of man vs. man in animal vs. animal display. Van Damme is not a martial artist, but he is a man pushed over the edge of sanity, and he snaps only to become more bloodthirsty than he ever was in Cyborg.
Ringo Lam is a brilliant director who's lost in the translation of B-movie Hell, but his vision is startlingly clear. 'In Hell' is his best film yet (and Maximum Risk was pretty impressive). Lawrence Taylor co-stars and shines as an insanely sane prisoner on a quest for justice. If you're a Jean-Claude fan, DO NOT pass this film up. 'The Order' sucked as did 'Derailed', 'Knock Off' and 'US2'. On a serious note, Ringo Lam brings you 'Maximum Risk', 'Replicant' and now 'In Hell'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Animal Regret Feb. 17 2004
Format:DVD
Jean Claude Van Damme's Kyle LeBlanc character is interesting. He's apparently passionate enough to execute his wife's killer after the courts let the killer free. Yet he comes across as a very controlled, tightly wound person. One might wonder why he didn't try to follow the killer to a less obvious venue before pulling the trigger, but apparently Kyle is overcome with loss. As a result he gets sent to an Eastern Block prison where corruption and violence are the ways of the world. In this environment, Van Damme becomes a savage. In deed, the international release is called "The Savage." Van Damme is put in a cell with a violent prisoner known for killing his cellmates. As played by ex-football star Lawrence Taylor, this guy is huge, speaking little but constantly writing in his journals. He establishes a strange friendship with Kyle. Kyle meantime fights for sport in prison-sponsored to-the-death matches. Particularly brutal is the neck bite attack where Kyle is transformed into a crazed killer. Van Damme is convincing as borderline insane. During his lockdowns, a butterfly that seems to be the spiritual embodiment of his dead wife comes to comfort him as he sits next to the raw sewage streaming through his cell. The film is filled with the usual prison rape and countless manners of brutality. It leads to Kyle's final escape to freedom. I found the action to be gripping, although this is not really an action film as such. Marnie Alton is particularly creepy as Grey Lord. There is enough here to please most Van Damme fans. Enjoy!

1.0 out of 5 stars Van Damme is washed up.
All of Van Damme's latest movies seem to be weak, and this is just another one with weak storyline and fights. Read more
