I appreciate that Dolph is trying to make more thought-provoking films. I'm a huge Lundgren fan! I grew up with the guy. As much as he tries, a lot of his STD movies don't quite measure up to the effort. Dolph does these pretentious movies with a deep message, haunted by a shady past a bit too often. This one is hard to distinguish from the rest. Not much happens, making the pace extremely slow, and hard to endure at times. Another problems is how grim and melancholy it is. I had to do other things to cure the boredom I had at times during this movie. They add in emotional family drama that doesn't add anything. Those that yearn for some classic Lundgren action will be very disappointed as well. There are some OK fight scenes sprinkled in sporadically, but none of them wowed me. There are some unexciting shootouts, if you're into that. Lundgren looks bored on certain occasions. At times he seems really into it, others disenchanted. He sells the part by looking sullen and ashamed, but it didn't seem genuine to me. Rest of the cast are not really worth mentioning.
This is mediocre stuff! Plain and simple. I would pass unless you're a die-hard Lundgren fan that has to see every movie he does. I'm one of those people
