Kill Zone
28 June 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Waxman ( Dolph Lundgren ) is a highly trained, expert assassin working for a secretive undercover organization known as The Agency. After failing to pull the trigger at his target in a previous mission in a unnamed war-torn East European country, Waxman ( Dolph Lundgren )and Clegg ( Gina Bellman ) his beautiful accomplice who is his "spotter" are given one last chance to make things right.

When i saw this movie i was very surprised how creative and stylish this movie turned out to be, the lighting, the soundtrack, locations and characters made this movie my favourite Dolph lundgren movie. I must say that most of the credit must go to the director of this movie Russell Mulcahy, not only he made this movie a very entertaining action film for action fans, he also creates a good style of suspense.
