Lt. Franklin L. Severence: Many times, Rudy. Many times.
Jack 'Rudy' Rudisill: There's just something wrong with that. A friend is someone who doesn't fuck your wife.
Lt. Franklin L. Severence: I never said Santee was a friend. I said he was like a son to me.
Jack 'Rudy' Rudisill: That makes it worse, doesn't it?
Lt. Franklin L. Severence: Oh yeah, much worse.

One of the greatest Dolph Lundgren movies I have seen.
1 July 2008 | by ingridon89See all my reviews

First of all, I would like to mention that Dolph Lundgren is my favorite action star and maybe I give too much sympathy to him and his work but it is only my own opinion and it is always nice to hear another ones too.

So 'Joshua Tree' or 'The Army Of One' is not only a cool action movie,full of shots, fighting and car races but also a dramatic story, representing a 'man with an autumn inside his heart'.Can't remember how many times I have watched it but it seems I can guess a bit of original story.Santee was a teenager when he was arrested my fake and corrupted cop-Severance.Instead of being put at prison he was forced to work with them and transport expensive cars for Chinese mafia.All went well till the day Severance decided not to share money with anyone else and get off the driver.

Santee was not a bastard or outlaw.Maybe just illegal driver but not a killer as all the people thought of him.Best friend was killed.He-in deadly danger.Moroever, suffering from a serious wound.All he needed was a car.I agree, at first he was a bit rude with Rita but the girl understood him and did absolutely right.If you live with cruel and shitty people you start feel yourself the same.With a lovely person besides him Santee became a weak, hurt and totally destroyed man.Someone, whose life was broken.

I advice everyone to see this movie and to think a bit deeper.Not only enjoy the action but also try to understand the main character. Thanks all the actors and director-Vic Armstrong. It was really a pleasure.
