  • JCVD should entertain both movie and action buffs. Van Damme proves once and for all that he's not just a set of glistening pectorals. However, he's still in no danger of being asked to play Hamlet. show more

  • JCVD juggles humor with whomping martial-arts moves and a kind of melancholy star turn from the melancholy, muscular star. show more

  • Van Damme says worse things about himself than critics would dream of saying, and the effect is shockingly truthful. show more
