Trivia

The series filmed in Los Angeles, which doubled for Bulgaria, which in the film-within-a-film is doubling for the Mississippi River. The designers leaned heavily on Eastern Bloc architecture: blocky, harsh gray structures with the Cyrillic alphabet on the signage. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jean-Claude Van Damme: My name is Jean-Clade Van Damme. I used to be super famous. Perhaps you remember my first starring role in Bloodsport. It is on television all of the time. Or maybe you've seen Timecop, which is like Looper starring Bruce Willis, but like a million times better.

JCVD in a series where he plays himself: Good idea!
17 September 2016 | by kaykollerSee all my reviews

"TORTURE" says the guy that rates a movie like "DEADPOOL" with one star (Eddie_Weinbauer). This pilot is anything but torture. Combining JCVD and this type series makes sense, i actually don't understand why we would need to vote(on amazon) for this series. It should get a full season without any competition screwing with it's chance to be on TV.

If you want to know more on the why, read all the other reviews (except for that 1 hater i mentioned at the beginning). They're pretty much spot on.

I gave this a 10/10 because some haters might give it a 1/10. But to be fair if you're not a JCVD fan it's a 7/10. And if you are it's a 8/10.

I'm just writing a review here because i'm bored today. I've wrote 1 review before because usually i read other peoples reviews and usually there are a couple reviews i totally agree with, so imo there's no reason to repeat what has already been said.
