JCVD in The Bouncer
The Bouncer, which is being released under the name Lukas in certain countries, sees the Belgian taking on the titular role as a struggling single parent trying to balance raising an eight-year-old daughter with life as a nightclub doorman.
But when a violent encounter with a drunk patron sees Van Damme’s character up in front of the authorities and at risk of losing custody of his daughter, he’s suddenly forced to go undercover to infiltrate a violent criminal organisation.
Van Damme’s Most Recent Finest
A violent, realistically brutal action effort that, aesthetically at least, draws comparisons with the semi-autobiographical effort JCVD. It’s a distinctly European affair too, with much of the film’s dialogue coming in Van Damme’s native flemish.
The Bouncer is due to arrive on January 11th. It’s already earned rave reviews following a series of film festival screenings and, at just 82 minutes, it’s an easy watch for action fans hoping to keep up with all things JCVD.
