Encouraging not to see a JCVD movie!!!
23 December 2018 | by allparizzoSee all my reviews

Under directions of Julien Leclerc, Jean Claude Vandamme can focus being an actor and working with this simple and efficient scenario. Nothing new but a good suprise, with intersting charachter: not talkative, with a huge pass and constrainted to do some dirty work. it's been a very long time and i thought i could never say that i'd like a movie of Jean Claude vandamme Again. Whish the best for future project :-)!!!
