JCVD

15, 92mins

Opens Friday, January 30

It's Chuckles from Brussels

THE STARS Jean-Claude Van Damme, Francois Damiens.

THE STORY Van Damme plays himself as a washed-up star involved in a custody battle who gets caught up in a hostage situation at his local post office.

THE VERDICT JCVD is an oddball delight as the Muscles from Brussels pokes fun at his he-man persona. The film is amusing, engaging and delightfully strange, with Van Damme in impressive form.

FINAL CUT
