The x-rays keep changing position when Jefferson and Renee are looking at the them. By the end of the scene the middle x-ray is upside down and backwards from the way it was in the beginning. See more »
Dolph In Space!....Now calm down.
So far unreleased in the U.S., (almost with good reason). It's for die-hard Dolph fans (like myself) only.
"Retrograde" is about John Foster (Lundgren) who has to stop a bunch of bad guys who are trying to take over a boat in the future. Yes, that sounds like a poor plot and it is, but deep down it looks like they were trying. The budget is low and the special effects are cheap, but Dolph and Gary put in decent performances.
The movie's worst sin was to not pit Dolph and Gary Daniels' characters to a fight to the death. That would've been awesome.
To tell you the truth, if you liked "Direct Action" you won't like "Retrograde", unless you are a Dolph completist.
