RAW,GRIM,GRITTY & DARK!!! PROBABLY VAN DAMME'S BEST PERFORMANCE.
The Bouncer is an extremely grim & gloomy dark tale of a single father who works nights at sleazy clubs as a bouncer,but can't wait to get home to see his daughter.
This is a very dark story,realism is splashed all over this Drama/Thriller & van damme gives probably his greatest performance of his career!!!
I like most grew up watching his 80's & 90's action films & have always been a huge fan of his as i am of Schwarzenegger & Stallone, so IT'S really nice to see van damme in a way long overdue "Good movie" even though it's another straight to dvd B-movie it's made with depth & character.
Van damme play's Lucas as a very lost & damaged man who only lives for his daughter.
The music is sometimes sad & dreary, it suits the gritty & grim tone perfectly as does the cinematography that captures the depressing surroundings.
A fantastic performance from van damme & a good solid gritty & violent story,just the ending ruined it abit for me but this is a way better than most direct to dvd films & a million times better than nearly all of steven seagal's dvd flicks.
