Jean Claude Van Johnson review
For those few of us who have followed Van Damme’s post 90’s career, there hasn’t been a lot to talk about in a very positive light. Nearly all of his films were high on mediocre action and more high still on mediocre acting. Then came the welcome surprise JCVD. A Belgian production that parodied Van Damme as himself caught up in a real life bank robbery. The film was a strange mix of action, drama and comedy but it worked and Van Damme was praised for his performance even going so far as to be nominated for several best actor awards. Unfortunately for him, this did not lead to better things and he soon found himself back to making formulaic low-budget action flicks.
If you’re a fan of Jean Claude, and have been waiting for his comeback (not withstanding The Expendables, where he didn’t get the recognition he deserved), here it is! He is at his best, with a witty script, and it definitely keeps you on your toes as far as plenty of stuff going on. There’s a lot packed into this, and the leading lady looks like his daughter, but who cares! Jean Claude Van Damme pokes fun at himself and adds dimension to this – I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I’d definitely want to see him a bit more often on our TV screens after this.
