JCVD at the Loft

Posted By on Mon, Jan 19, 2009 at 11:52 AM

I caught a matinee of JCVD at The Loft over the weekend. Jean-Claude Van Damme plays himself as an aging action-movie hero who is losing his roles to Steven Seagal and has a variety of legal problems, including a court battle over custody of his daughter. He ends up as a hostage in a bank robbery during a visit home to Belgium. Hijinks ensue.

I'm not a huge Van Damme fan, though I vaguely remember enjoying Timecop. Nonetheless, I'd recommend JCVD. It's clever and a lot of fun.
