What Red Scorpion can teach us about guerrilla combat

10 February 2012 7:39 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Red Scorpion out now on Blu-ray, we take a look at what this 80s action fest can teach us about guerrilla warfare…

Standing at six feet five inches tall, Dolph Lundgren was the strapping alpha male of 80s cinema. After landing a tiny role in the James Bond movie A View To A Kill in 1985, the latter half of the decade saw the chemical engineering graduate, ex-bodyguard and Karate champion at the height of his rippling powers.

Lundgren punched Apollo Creed to death in front of James Brown in Rocky IV in 1985, starred as He-Man in Masters Of The Universe in 1987, and two years after that, headed off to Namibia to shoot his toughest assignment yet: the action epic, Red Scorpion.

Apparently fated to play Russian characters – his brief appearance in the 007 flick was as a Kgb henchman – Lundgren plays Nikolai Rachenko, an elite Soviet soldier sent on a mission to Africa. »
