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.

Jean-Claude Van Damme in a goofy spy comedy
28 August 2016 | by pjthomas404See all my reviews

I couldn't think of a better idea if I tried, unless maybe you through Steven Segal into the mix as well. This show looks like it could be truly amazing as long as it is done right.

JVCD showed that Van Damme has a sense of humor, and this new show really proves it. Van Damme recognizes that he's getting old and can't do the old stunts like he used to, so he's shifting gears into more serious material, rather than his normal martial arts clichéd movies.

I can only hope that he continues to make entertaining content like this, and I really, really hope the show stays around.

Anyway, yeah, this is one of the most interesting, goofy, and enjoyable things I've ever seen from him. He's kind of pulling a Jackie Chan a little bit and branching off into movies and TV that aren't just purely partial arts content. I think this and JVCD might actually bring him back into the spotlight as long as he can keep up the quality of those two.
