Jesus. The low budget action arena seems in dire straits, if all that you mention is true. Personally, I found Seagal's and Van Damme last efforts far more entertaining than their "A" movies. Of course, I'm pretty weird myself when it comes to action movies.

Yes,he is a black belt and the law degree is true also.Just got to point out that he's swedish and I've acctually met him briefly in an airport in San Antonio -96. About the earlier comment about someone wishing him to be a spetsnaz or whatever,he did a movie called red scorpion where he's an elite rusian soldier kinda guy and I think (I'm not sure) the bad guys are Americans...now thats original...name one other movie where the Americans are the bad guys....I mean like a war movie...where the hero of the flick...is on the other side.....hmm....I can't think of any...help me out.

From IMDB :

"A Russian KGB agent is sent to Africa to kill an anti-Communist black revolutionary. However, he has a change of heart when he sees how the Russians and their Cuban allies are killing and repressing the locals, so he switches sides and helps the rebels."

No Americans, just Russians and Cubans. They must have been trying to capitalize on his Rocky IV fame. I remember loving this movie when I was a kid, but I havent seen it in years.

I read he had done a movie with John Woo,but I've never heard of it before. Anyone knows about this? And if so...is it any good?

"Islamists....................50%
Communists.............40%
others
(Triads, Mafia,
Camorra, etc)...........10%"

Nah, you're way off.  Nobody's afraid of communists anymore (at least not in America).  The North Koreans will have to launch a nuke at Japan before the average American starts to care, Castro has been reduced to a Seinfeld skit, and the Chinese haven't been true communists since Mao died.  It'll look like this:

Islamists...............70% (sign of the times)
Neo-Nazis...........25% (the bad guys everyone in Hollywood can agree)
Drug Cartel..........5%   (overdone in the 80s and 90s, but Lundgren may go there)

I think it would be funny if Dolph Lundgren turned out to be a really brilliant director and after this start was accepting an Oscar for something poignant in a few years.

"But he's always the good guy."

You're right.  He was bad in Universal Soldier and Rocky IV -- his two best roles to date.

God, I love 80's action movies.  Van Damme used to be the master of the asskicking universe.  Dolph made movies like The Punisher and Dark Angel (I Come In Peace for all you Americans).  Oodles of bad ninja movies.  Thank the lord for DVD.  Revenge of the Ninja is now out!!!

Probably you mean "Blackjack". It is pretty bad for a John Woo film, but it is action packed and lots of fun. Among the best recent Lundgren films.

Speaking of which...I just saw a scene from a Wu-tung Kung fu movies..the one with a guy fights a Baloon with eyes(?) and it's supposed to be a scary monster of some sort....and then someone makes a really bad voice over for the baloon  monster...it's so terrible....picture yourself a kung fu artist making round house kicks to a big fat baloon on a wire that speaks and sais "ow!"...pure quality movie making.

Reading all the people that hadn't heard about this film before makes me realize how few have actually read my B-WARE article I put together back in January. Sometimes I wonder why I bother. Sigh.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
