Blackjack (1998) was a made for t.v. movie that was directed by JOhn Woo and stars Dolph Lundgren. The budget purse strings were tight on this project and the filming schedule was short. But guess what? The settings were perfect for John Woo and he takes an ordinary run-of-the-mill action film and makes it work! The action scenes were shot quite well (Woo brings in his old cinematographer Wong Wing Hang) and pulls out every trick from his bag of goodies. The action is quite frequent and kinetic (for a t.v. movie). This is the type of films John Woo should be making. Cheap, on the fly projects instead of big bloated film projects that take forever to make a with no pay-off.
Dolph Lundgren plays a former federal agent who know works as a personnel bodyguard. One day his buddy and his wife are killed and he takes custodian of the couple's precocious daughter. While on assignment (protecting a supermodel) a gang of ill mannered hit men chase him all over town. Who are they? Are they connected to the girl's parents or the supermodel he now protects? Who knows? To find out the answers to these pertinent questions you'll have to watch Blackjack!
If you watch this movie make sure you see it on video. This version has all of the cool action that is missing from the one shown on the U.S.A. network. Despite the lack of a big budget and named actors, this movie actually works. I would rather see ten movies like this instead of one Mission Impossible 2 or Windtalkers.
Recommended for fans of John Woo's earlier work.
