If any of you have followed my recent activity in reviews you know one of my latest was a Jean Claude Van Damme two pack with Replicant and,what I thought was one of Van Dammes best efforts,Legionnaire.In that I intimated there was more to this star than just his action movie work and I said the movie showed what he was capable of.I also stated that it was kind of a coming out for me to admit I was a JCVD fan at all,but there it is.So what has this to do with this movie,JVCD? Well soon after I posted that review one of my friends who is definitely NOT a JCVD fan begrudging suggested I watch JVCD."Why,you don't like him?",I queried."Just watch it,you'll see",he replied.So I did...and wow! This is the one,folks.This movie,JCVD(released June/08),illustrates the point I tried to make in that recent review.THIS is what Van Damme was/is capable of doing and it is in short.....spectacular.
The story takes us inside and outside the movie business throughout its' 97 minute duration.It starts off with Van Damme systematically fighting his way through a bevy of bad guys and situations.There are clues along the way but in a short time a director yells "cut" and we are on a movie set with Van Damme trying to tell a snobbish oriental producer with plenty of attitude,c/w translator,that he thought he could have done it better.But his pleas fall on deaf ears,as Van Damme can only shake his head in disgust.The scene then switches to him talking to his producer about lining up a new production.His agent suggests one title with a totally inane name,but he's already shot it.He suggests another equally ridiculous title but it's a sequel-a number 2.

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.

What would Jean Claude Van Damme do if he really did find himself in a situation that calls for an action hero? This film envisions JCVD as an aging action star, in the midst of a heated custody battle and losing all the good action roles to Steven Seagal. He finds himself stuck in the middle of a hostage crisis, and, unlike in the movies, he knows in this case his fists and feet won't save anybody. In the thrilling opening sequence, a single take from a film within the film, after dispatching an entire military unit almost entirely unarmed, he asks the director why he always has to throw away his guns, and the response is that his character eschews guns for the sake of purity. In real life, though, he knows he's helpless with a gun to his head.

Ironically, what the situation calls for is brain rather than the brawn he portrays in his classic martial arts pictures. It's a surprisingly honest set up and performance, that acknowledges all of the cliches and jokes one might raise about the man and his movies, at the same time as it highlights the fact that he really is just a guy who dreamed big and worked hard and did something. In a pivotal monologue, Van Damme wonders what it was he really accomplished and it feels utterly authentic. A hometown hero in Brussels for "making it" in Hollywood, sure, but he knows his films are also something of a joke, and at least as depicted here his life is a mess. For all the punishment he takes to make the fight scenes authentic, there's something that always feels fake about his action films; here, even though there's less actual fighting, he takes an emotional beating and it really feels genuine, even if most of it is in fact scripted. There's still a quasi-documentary feel to it all. Obviously recommended for fans of JCVD.
