The Jean Claude Van Damme Review Matrix (JCVD-RM)

1. Who is he? Lyon Gaultier, a disgruntled, often disciplined French Legionnaire stationed in Africa
2. Which family member/friend must be avenged? His brother François, who gets torched to a crisp after reneging on a drug deal
3. Does he take his shirt off? As a stowaway on a ship to America, Lyon is forced to shovel coal into the boilers of the boiler room. And, whew!, does it ever get hot down there!
4. Does he have sex with a C-List actress? No, despite the fact that a rich, psychopathic, sadistic blonde fight organizer named Cynthia basically threw herself at him
5. Is there a tournament? More or less, only, winners advance to bigger and more lucrative matches with each victory
6. Is training needed for this tournament? Not specifically. His military training and hard labor already prepared him for battle.
7. Does he do the splits in training or in the tournament? Sadly, unless mid-air splits count, the answer is no.
8. Does he punch someone in the balls? With a well-placed single shot in his initial organized bare-knuckle fight, Lyon destroys the reproductive future for a guy who looks like the biker from the Village People.
9. Does he do a series of flying or 360 kicks? The question isn't "does he", it should be "where does he". The answer: In a racquetball court, under a bridge, in a nearly empty swimming pool, and a small arena with stands.
10. Is his enemy unbeatable? Atilla basically looks like the guy one-step-to-the-left on the Evolutionary chart. Additionally, he has saxophone-sized mutton-chop sideburns, which is scary in and of itself.
11. Does he overcome an injury or other hindrance?

Let me start by saying that I don't go for action-adventure movies. I was reluctantly dragged to this one by my boyfriend yet came away singing its praises. Wow!!! Most AA movies are mere vehicles to showcase the star's martial-arts prowess; this movie does much, much more. It crosses over into the mainstream and has a plot which is much more riveting than the so-called blockbusters Hollywood churns out. The characters are believable and rouse genuine emotions. To wit: Jean Claude's tears when he is informed of his brother's death. How could that not melt your heart? And the genuine and desperate need of his sister-in-law and little niece -- who can't empathize with that?
This is the only AA movie that would score huge points with feminists because unlike every other movie in its genre, LIONHEART is very female-dominated. The genuinely powerful people are not Jean Claude or any of his competitors, even the Goliath he ultmately battles. They are the niece and the sister-in-law, and, of course, the lady he works for in the fighting world. These are the people who call all the shots and control every aspect of this movie.
The score is wonderful, too, especially the piece that is played while Jean Claude covertly watches his sister-in-law and niece walk to school one morning.
Because this movie crosses over so brilliantly, I think it could very accurately be categorized as a drama. The ending is a complete tearjerker!

Whether you're a Van Damme fan or have never heard of him, you'll appreciate this movie. As always, there's plenty of kickbutt action but it also has lots of heart and a good story-line. Van Damme usually plays good guys (with the occasional evil twin), helping friends and family out of tough situations. The same goes for this film. He sacrifices his body through underground fights to financially and anonymously help his widowed sister-n-law and nephew. Great fighting scenes. Funny sidekick. Good acting, by all characters, pulls you into the story. Bottom Line: Golden Oldie that will win you over!

Most films starring Jean-Claude Van Damme are nothing more than vehicles for showing off his considerable fighting skills. Prior to LIONHEART, JCVD rarely had to act. He fought a lesser series of bad guys on the way to a final confrontation with a very intimidating fighter. Now this also sounds like a plot summary of LIONHEART, but in addition to the kicks and punches, the film also delves into some serious issues of duty versus responsibility and the meaning of friendship.
JCVD plays a Legionnaire whose brother in the US is ill, so he requests permission for emergency leave. His request is turned down on the rightful claim of his commandant that his presence in Africa was needed for Legionnaire business. At this point, VD must decide which is of greater import: his duty to his brother or to his country. He chooses to go AWOL to find his brother. This choice could not have been an easy one since his decision to leave the base would necessarily entail his being labeled a deserter. Two Legionnaire NCOs are sent to bring him back in chains. While in America, he discovers that his brother is dead and has left behind a destitute wife and child. VD determines to win money to provide for them by engaging in brutal cage fights. Along the way he picks up the services of a wino manager, oily played by Harrison Page. Slowly the two men, the fighter and the manager, lay the grounds for a binding friendship, which is tested by the manager's decision to bet on the fearsome and final opponent. When VD finds out that his manager sold him out, you can see that the pain in his heart outweighs the more obvious pain of his bruised ribs. When he somehow defeats this monster fighter, the scene in which his manager first congratulates then apologizes to him is both touching and convincing.
