It's time to retire for JVCD...!!!

Van Damme continues his late career streak of good performances, but unfortunately Darkness of Man suffers with minimal action and one of JCVD's weakest...

Van Damme is older and understandably one should not expect him to be quite as fast or agile but even taking that into account, every fight scene is rinse and repeat with Van Damme either standing in place and firing his pistol or slowly punching out one henchman at a time. This might be the only Van Damme where he doesn't throw a single kick...

The film blends elements of an out-and-out action film and an L. A. noir-themed film. The movie at its core is about a relationship and it stays true to it throughout the film... This film also needs him to do some compassionate scenes and he aces them beautifully too. His acting prowess is underrated but in this film, he shows off a whole range of emotions...

The film has many twists and turns and the final suspense is mind-blowing. The makers of the film have made sure that the storytelling and screenplay never take a backseat in this action-dominant film...

Overall the movie has nothing to offer but perhaps embrace the most iconic star of Hollywood for one last time...

Turned Out Hatch Was A Good Guy

I still can't believe I've really watched this movie. Shame on you IMDb because there was no rating since I watched it before its release date.

Van damme is playing but as if they forced him to do so.

--spoiler-- I haven't read the description before the film and it turned out Russell Hatch (van damme) was an Interpol operative at the end. In the middle of the film a black guy who looked like he's doing illegal operations closed to Hatch and offered him an operation and said he could pay back what they've done to him. Why am I saying this? Because you can't get the feeling from their acting.

Still can't believe I really watched it.

This was average movie, I can believe that he would rather skip recovery day and keep on fighting. That's exactly what we fight for.

Set against the backdrop of a grim Los Angeles, the film weaves a complex narrative around Hatch's promise to a slain informant to protect her son, Jayden. As Hatch grapples with his own demons and the city's underworld, "Darkness of Man" delves into themes of loyalty, betrayal, and the cost of survival. While the film does not boast the high-octane action sequences of Van Damme's heyday, it compensates with a gritty atmosphere and a focus on character-driven storytelling. The noir elements are executed with a commendable finesse, adding layers to the plot and elevating the film above many of its DTV counterparts. Van Damme's performance is nuanced, showcasing his range beyond physical prowess. The supporting cast, including Emerson Min and Andrey Ivchenko, deliver solid performances that anchor the film's emotional core. The action, when it occurs, is well-staged, albeit less frequent than one might expect. The violence is visceral, with a raw edge that suits the film's darker tone. The cinematography and score complement the narrative, creating a cohesive and immersive viewing experience. In conclusion, "Darkness of Man" is a laudable effort that blends action with a moody, noir aesthetic. It may not reach the heights of Van Damme's classic works, but it stands as a testament to his enduring appeal and ability to adapt to the evolving landscape of action cinema. The substitles reminded me of JOHN WICK Substitles and the action was quite pleased, made me intense a little bit.
