Action Hero Stars in Sly Post-Modern Comeback
Sun February 22
2009, 7:00 & 9:00

A fallen action star in real life, riches to rags: that's the irresistible setup of this tale involving Jean Claude Van Damme, known for his lead roles in a series of lurid action showcases of the myriad forms of violence humans can inflict upon one another. “The Muscles from Brussels” here makes a comeback bid in a narrative film that playfully examines his celebrity, his body of work, and who he is now, at age 47, fighting for custody of his kids, running out of money and the goodwill that is automatically conferred on celebrities. As a star of this genre (second now to Steven Seagal, a running gag here, of course), JCVD is more often ridiculed and belittled these days than given the best table, yet people seeking the touch of fame are still angling for his attentions. He gets into hot water (cameras are involved, as always) in a bank in one desperate moment and it all spirals into even more chaos, winking all the while at the film genres it both follows and mocks.
