Jean-Claude Van Damme's serious role in brutal prison drama - best direct-to-video film rage is unleashed

In Hell is one of the best prison drama and Jean-Claude Van Damme shows his serious talent of acting. Van Damme can act "In Hell" the best direct-to-video flick. Van Damme is Kyle LeBlanc an innocent men in Russian Prison in Eastern block, the warden pits prisoners against each other in fights to the death for the profit. When Kyle LeBlanc a normal construction worker, who doesn't know any of the fighting is pit against other inmates in a fight to the death, he has no choice, but has to fight for survival and for freedom - rage is unleashed I love this film to death.

I love Jean-Claude Van Damme I am his number 1 fan I love Hard Target, Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Cyborg, Lionheart, Death Warrant, Double Impact, Universal Soldier and many more his film to death and I love In Hell which is different movie that Van Damme started.

I love prison films I love Jean-Claude Van Damme's Death Warrant, The Shawshank Redemption and I also love Undisputed III: Redemption someday I will review that film. I love the prison setting, I love the fight sequence in the opening scene in which Van Damme's fights with his wife's murderer in Russia. I love how a normal human being transformers in to a monster he despises. I love how Van Damme trains and learns fighting by him self, he has no back up no help and he is alone against many inmates.

I love the story and how Van Damme has to fight for his surviving. This was the third and final collaboration between Jean-Claude Van Damme and Hong Kong film director Ringo Lam. Different movie for Van Damme. My only issue is which we could see more martial arts. I wish Van Damme would show us his spin kicks, more martial arts and it could be more an action movie, but this is more a brutal prison drama. You see also rape, some guy gets torched in fire. This is different movie than action packed "Death Warrant" in which Van Damme played in 1990, because that movie was more an action and Van Damme was undercover cop, but in here he is a normal worker like me, this is a prison drama similar with The Shawshank Redemption.

I love the cast beside Van Damme: Juan Fernandez, Lawrence Taylor, Marnie Alton and Robert LaSardo yes he is in this movie from Out for Justice and Renegade TV Series. The cast works fine for me and I love that Van Damme is in chained out side and in cuffs. Van Damme is in hell hole locked you see real hell that this guy come too.

One of the most realistic acting performance from Van Damme I have ever seen. "In Hell" is my favorite prison film with The Shawshank Redemption and Undisputed III: Redemption. I do also have In Hell direct-to-video on Blu-ray disc in my Van Damme movie collection.

brutal prison drama

I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed this film, as it was a very hard hitting and brutal drama, which I didn't expect from a Van Damme film. Certain scenes I found profoundly disturbing, but also very gripping and compelling. I think this film deserved more praise than it recieved on it's release, but fans of Van Damme will like it anyway!!! It may also come as a surprise to a more varied movie goer, like it did to me.

Worth A Look

"In Hell" is a prison movie -- and as we all know -- prison movies come with their own set of clichés. You know the type... the ruthless head prison guard, a corrupt warden, inmates of various nationalities and tendencies complete with their own stories all within the worst of living conditions. "In Hell" couples this with an utterly brutal and ultimately dehumanizing set of fight pieces set inside the corrupt lifeless Russian prison that come together to form the latest opus from Ringo Lam and Van Damme. Now you'll either look past these clichés maybe even embrace them and enjoy the movie as-is or you won't and should turn back now. Those heeding the warning will venture to find a movie akin to the 'been-there-seen-that' trait, but with a Van Damme twist and shaped by the dark foreboding hand of Ringo Lam.

"In Hell" finds Kyle LeBlanc (Van Damme) living in the former people's republic. Married and working at a steel mill, we get the notion pretty fast that his marriage has taken a few bumps because of his job's placement. He promises to make things right, but before he can his wife is systematically murdered. In court justice is corrupt and Kyle has to find vengeance in the form of a guard's firearm just outside the courtroom as he kills his wife's murderer in a fit of cold blood. The next we see of Kyle he is a torn weary man on a bus in handcuffs on his way to his new life inside the worst prison man has ever seen. A prison where there is no escape and men fight to the death. This is the premise of "In Hell".

The prison itself is this cold, dark, violent and repulsive rat trap of a place. It feels almost too real. You feel the coldness, the destruction of mankind happening within it's walls through Kyle, the subhuman food and lodging, everything. It's there. You see it, hear it, feel it. Kyle wants out and so will you.

Let me just say that Van Damme's latest efforts have been a mixed bag (and that's being kind). The truth is he's fallen quite a ways from his "Universal Soldier" days and that's what makes "In Hell" such a striking success. This isn't a patterned Van Damme movie. This isn't Van Damme playing Van Damme. The fighting scenes don't even display the usual Van Damme-ish feel to them and that's definitely a good thing. They aren't highly complicated or choreographed. There is no video effects or weird camera angles of any sort to highlight the fighting. It's just raw primitive fighting. No mastering of the martial arts just fisticuffs that are brutal and short to the point.

If you watch your share of b-movies some familiar faces in the supporting cast help things along too. Names like Juan Fernández, Robert LaSardo and real life ex-pro footballer Lawrence Taylor (Any Given Sunday) aptly named prisoner "451" that you'll have to see the film to fully understand why.

"In Hell" is a real nice chance of pace for Van Damme and for that reason alone, I recommend this movie. Don't get me wrong. I'm not a big Van Damme fan myself and "In Hell" is not striking movie-making, but for a DTV prison-farce starring Van Damme of all people if anything it's at least decent.
