Think of it as Sunset Bloodsport with Jean-Claude as Norma Desmond.

It's a watershed moment in Van Damme's career; the moment you realise the crazy bastard really can act. It's a tragedy of sorts that most of his fans won't even care.

It has ensured JCVD will be remembered as an introspective, thoughtful and altogether more profound individual than anyone who ever watched him split a skull would have thought possible.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

For all we know, it's just a big show, a put-on for our entertainment -- but what matters is that it's really quite convincing. You do want to believe this is Van Damme.

a bold attempt to humanize Van Damme, not by trying to ignore his personal and professional pitfalls, but by reminding us that behind ever movie star, loved or loathed, is a complex human being

...not your usual Van Damme movie...and a refreshing change of pace for the actor.

If you thought that Mickey Rourke had the market cornered on comebacks with his transcendent performance in Darren Aronofsky's masterpiece The Wrestler, then think again.

It's fun as far as it goes, and for the most part quite well made, but in the end it's really not about very much at all.

Mechri allows the verbally challenged action star dignity and, with this, the film works. Maybe next time he could bring Jean-Claude and Mickey Rourke together. Now that would be a movie.

...reveals ... a supple and engaging actor with a sense of humor and a rare kind of self-recognition. Van Damme knows what we think of him and understands why.

Van Damme has never done work like this before, and he's supported by the director's unique vision for the film

It's clever and unexpected, this confluence of dramatic fiction and real life that finds action star Jean-Claude Van Damme playing a version of himself in a heist movie

A real departure for Van Dame, but it ought to help his career. Who knew he could act?

[Van Damme] brings a kind of weary dignity to the role, and a surprising self-awareness...

It's fun, and moderately well handled by a young French director.

Seems like a spoof at first glance but this proves to be a compelling Post-modern thriller with gumption.
