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.
