Put simply, Dolph Lundgren is the real one man army!!
Swedish-born Lundgren is Jack Devlin, a bodyguard for hire who holsters guns all over his body and uses playing cards as deadly projectiles. He can take out an group of at least a dozen men armed with automatic guns with only the use of his pistols. Talk about unbeatable. This guy could teach Rambo lessons! Devlin's got one weakness, though, and that is the color of pure white. This is done so he's not portrayed as a complete superman!
"Blackjack" is a prime John Woo film, which is filmed in an expertly way. But that doesn't mean it's perfect. This film has a lot of drawbacks!! For example, Devlin has an unlimited supply of ammo, meaning he never had to reload his guns! That was an error that should have been corrected. But the dumbest mistake in this film is the fact that Devlin has a phobia of the color white! That is the dumbest fear ever since being afraid of having peanut butter stuck to the roof of your mouth (I'm not kidding!!) Plus, there were instances where Devlin touched a couple of white objects (i.e. doors) and he didn't react to them! Those were one of the weirdest and most boneheaded doozies ever shown on TV, and with a master director like John Woo, they should have been corrected!
But, despite all those miserable errors in this film, "Blackjack" is really a very enjoyable action flick, with great stunts, great performances (especially of Lundgren's, this has to be his best role for a very long time) and cool action sequences, which is typical John Woo-style adrenaline rushes. Watch this movie if you're in the mood for a guilty pleasure!
