In Hell is a 2003 action thriller film directed by Ringo Lam and starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.



Kyle LeBlanc(Van Damme) is an American working overseas in Russia. When he hears his wife being attacked over the phone, Kyle rushes home to find that he's too late. The man who killed his wife is found not guilty on lack of evidence. So Kyle takes the law into his own hands, and kills the man to avenge his wife's death. He is sentenced to life in prison without parole. The Russian prison he is sent to is tough, and the warden amuses himself by putting on fights where he fills his pockets with money by betting on the fights. Kyle begins to break and go crazy, so he is forced into these fights because the warden knows he is a sure thing. Kyle's cellmate 451 begins to make him think of what he is fighting for. With that, Kyle knows now he must fight another battle: the fight for inner peace. It is the only way he can become the man he once was.


  • In the Russian legislation there is no such term as "life in prison without parole". Each life convict has a right for parole after serving a 25-years term.
  • The life sentence was made without referring to the Russian Court of Cassation.
  • In Russia convicts sentenced to Life are kept separate from other inmates and do not participate in any labour regimes.


It was made on location in Bulgaria.
