Actually pretty goodBy TheWatchman (518 reviews) from Suburbia , 12 Oct 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I could always take or leave Jean Claude Van Dammes action films, even in the eighties he was always second fiddle to Schwarzenegger and Stallone. Then he seemed to go off radar for years into an abyss of B and C movies that went straight to DVD.
And here he is again, going straight to DVD. However, for a change, this ones actually pretty good. JCVD plays an ex soldier or mercenary (they call him both, but it doesnt matter) who now works as a butcher, in between rescuing kidnapped children from the clutches of vile child-trafficking gangsters in Eastern Europe.
So, when an American couple lose their fourteen-year-old daughter, who ya gonna call?
One way to describe Six Bullets would be a poor mans Taken as it has elements of the hit Liam Neeson film where he has to rescue his kidnapped daughter in similar circumstances and surroundings. But that would be a little unfair, as Six Bullets does just enough to try and make it its own film in its own right.
For a start, the American couple dont just sit back and let the Muscles from Brussels do all the work, they take up arms and give him a helping hand.
Theres not much here thats new, but its done in a decent enough way to be worth a watch if you fancy seeing another action film.
Solid and definitely Van Dammes best film in years (not including The Expendables 2).

No SubtitlesBy a customer , 26 Apr 2013Returned as no subtitles for hard of hearing. Please start listing this on DVD's. This is a problem for deaf people..
Blu-ray by any other nameBy ChristopherRobin (5 reviews) , 08 Mar 2013I only watched about 20 minutes of this film: it seemed to be a standard Jean-Claude Van Damme/Steven Seagal type plot, But what made me stop watching was the poor quality of this blu-ray film. I really expected better, and I didn't get it. If I had to make a recommendation it would be watch this film in dvd.
pants and more pantsBy ParrotBoy (14 reviews) from West Wickham, Kent , 27 Feb 2013well I love this guy Mr Van Dam but this film was pants it seems he just does films for his son now days, I think his last 3 or more films had his sone in it, oh and one had his daughter in it hope he does better films in future. I love him but he needs to do better
not his bestBy chasckd (550 reviews) from Telford , 08 Jan 2013could have been a lot better if van damm had not been so false and stiff not his usual brilliance
Good but not excellent.By sa77 (25 reviews) , 31 Dec 2012The very first film I saw with JCV was the Kick Boxer many years ago, and enjoyed it. The standard of this film is as if nothing has changed, and JCV's fight scenes are not robotic, (on comparison with Steven Segal, who used to be good, but now - no) The story is quite fast paced & good. Only negative point being the acting capabilities of the thugs & body guards, which was very amateur & more suited to a kids school play. Apart from that it is a good film
