Trivia

The scene where Dolph Lundgren's character runs through the mass of people during the Easter celebration was shot during an actual enactment by pilgrims of the twelve stations of Christ. Hidden cameras were used to get the footage, and a pair of incognito Israeli National Squad paratroopers followed Lundgren for his protection. None the less pilgrims and tourists thought his fake blood was an actual wound, and "real" soldiers pointed M16 guns at Lundgren and got him down on the ground as they had not been well informed of the film production.

Better than some think
7 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

The problem with Dolph is that he can act a bit. He's no Top class actor, it's fair to say, but he's not the worst either. This was the first film where he seemed to want to prove he can act and he does it quite well. A pity he is typecast as an 'action' hero. He'd still do quite well in a big role in a major film. Possibly not the lead but a supporting role.

The film is also a little disturbing in how it shows now as some of the events depicted in the film have, seemingly, come to pass. Not in the way the film portrays them, true, but the effects globally have been largely the same.
