A great opening

Watched a really interesting movie on the weekend - JCVD, starring Jean Claude Van Damme. I can't recall ever watching any of his movies. But this is a great performance. He plays himself, a 48 year-old washed up actor who suddenly finds himself in the middle of a real life robbery. It's a really raw, honest performance. He can really act.

This is the french trailer. What I also loved was the opening credit with the boy and the balloon. It's brilliant. It's just a little thing - but I always think it's a great sign of what's to follow if they've put time and effort into a creative opening.
