The film Cinemtography is pretty darn good for a Straight to DVD. The Action scenes are really good, but they aren't the main focus of the film, which is why I was surpised at how good it is. The main plot is basically JCVD is a single father and bouncer at a Night Club. One night he gets in an altercation with a pateron and the accidentally injures the guy. I would argue that he didn't really do anything, but I am not his boss at the night club :D. So he gets fired. His friend sets him up with a job interview at a Strip Club owned by some gangsters. He gets the job after a really brutal fight scene and then is arrested shortly after getting the new job becaues of the previous altercation, and told if he wroks with the police to spy on the gangsters they will drop all charges. So begins the films main plot.
JCVD really shines in this role and you really feel for his situtation. As you learn more about Lukas' past and what he is facing, you feel truely for the character. This film is 1000x times better then Taken 2 and Taken 3 and a lot of other garbage that ends up in Theaters. Not to say this film is a copy of Taken but more of a similiar type of film to movies like Taken, John Wick, and other films in the same gernre.
Soiler Alert...Spoiler Alert, Minor spoiler ahead trun back now if you don't want any spoilers. Ok you were warned. The ending of the film is slightly ambigous and despite the fact I hate ambigous endings in general, this one hints a bit towards a conclusion but the ending is very fitting for the movie.
If you are JCVD fan, this is a must scene without question. If you are not, but want to watch a good film that really shows off the actors acting ability I would highly recommend seeing this film and the movie called JCVD! Both are great examples of what JCVD can do. Hollywood the man has paid the price for whatever he has done in the past, and it is time to welcome him back. He still has a lot of miles in him and deserves to have another theatrical film or more!
