- Synopsis: Down and out, with only straight-to-DVD titles under his belt and a recent job lost out to fellow has-been Steven Segal, the aging action star Jean-Claude Van Damme returns to Belgium a broken man fresh from losing a custody case for his daughter in Hollywood. Upon his arrival, the bad news continues with a disastrous ATM encounter that leads him into the bank and straight into a robbery situation, for which he's about to be blamed. Soon, crowds grow outside on the street, with the cops quick to point the finger at him and his fans cheering for his release. (from Blockbuster.com)
- This can't be good. That's what I thought when I first heard about it. Sometime after, few clips of the movie were released online, which were surprisingly funny and piqued my interest. Then I read all the glowing reviews after its screenings at festivals and I knew I had to see it.
- So, is it any good? It is. I liked it A LOT. It's funny, it's sad, it's well-crafted, and Van Damme shows that he can actually act! Who woulda thunk it? Seriously though, don't knock it 'till you've seen it.
- When: 4/18, 7:00PM
