Excellent meta-movie about Jean Claude Van Damme.

JCVD is a French crime film directed by French-Algerian director Mabrouk El Mechri, and starring Jean-Claude Van Damme as himself, a down-and-out action star whose family and career are crumbling around him as he's caught in the middle of a post office … see full wiki

*** out of ****     Don't you love it when a crummy actor is given one moment of true glory? That moment of glory, for actor Jean-Claude Van Damme, is the film "JCVD". Throughout his career, Van Damme has starred in various generic action films; all of which have been forgettable and ultimately convoluted. It's almost kind of strange how this film doesn't mimic or mock the quality of his other films. No, this film is better than that. It features Van Damme playing a semi-fictitious …

Kicks Just Keep Gettin' Harder to Find
JCVD is just what all the other reviews claim, it's a tour de force for Jean-Claude Van Damme The Actor.

"Central to Unit 27. Jean-Claude Van Damme's robbing a post office. I need back-up."     Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):       1. Jean- Claude Van Damme's getting no respect   2. It's so bad that even Steven Seagal steals a movie role from him   3. "The Muscles" returns to Brussels where at least everyone knows his name   4. His cash-strapped position leads him to the post office   5. People go postal …
