Nice surprise
4 January 2019 | by ozsudSee all my reviews

Jean Claude is at his best here. It's good to see him working with professionals, cameramen, actors, producers. You can see here the true Van damme, the character is well played , acting, action, father, old timer, it's all there. Hope we see more of this. Sometimes slow (like French cinema) but overall, I had a great time
