Jean-Claude Van Johnson: Season 1 (2016)


Critic Consensus: Jean-Claude Van Damme parodies his own martial arts image with world-weary grace, but this series' scattershot laugh ratio and limited production value could leave viewer reaction as split as the star's thighs.

Critic Reviews for Jean-Claude Van Johnson Season 1

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (10)

... as nutty as "Jean-Claude Van Johnson" sounds, its execution feels too familiar to earn its spot.

Top Critic

With so much po-faced, inertia-laden, 10-hours-of-thinking-hard programming around the moment, it's refreshing to see something so keen to please.

Van Damme -- older, wiser and slower, also wrinkled, hunched and melancholy -- salvages an otherwise fascinating, uneven mess.

If you're not already sharing Van Damme's lament that he isn't more relevant in 2017, "Jean-Claude Van Johnson" is not the best place to start.

JC is a likeable hero to root for who, despite his cocky exterior, is surprisingly happy to mock his own career in the name of comedy. Ironically, a show about being a washed-up actor could well reignite the popularity of its real-life star.

Funny, smart where you don't expect it, a bit shameless, framed literally and figuratively like a post-modern Buster Keaton, and of course full of deadpan quips, kicks, spins and that surely trademarked split by the Muscles from Brussels.

Jean-Claude Van Johnson is absolute riot that features moments of impeccably crafted action cinema.

In Jean-Claude Van Johnson the action star knows how to laugh at himself. And he does it well. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 8, 2018 | Full Review…

At six episodes, the series has enough drive to sustain it, especially since it throws in some outlandish gags and a diabolical scheme to take over the world.

The whole international-spy thing gets repetitive fast.
