Comments: I've no idea where all the international film festival love for this movie comes from. Is it because we get to see JCVD cry? It's not like he gives us a Brando or anything. Self-effacement should be applauded, I guess, but it's not necessarily enjoyable. The story, a bank hold up with hostages, is nothing new or interesting. I'm stumped.

Summary: 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 who finds that even Steven Seagal has pinched a role from him! In JCVD, Jean-Claude Van Damme returns to the country of his birth to seek the peace and tranquility he can no longer enjoy in the United States.
