A Moscow charity concert turns bloody when armed extortionists take the head liner American pop-star Venus and the Russian President with his family hostage. Help is on the way when the drummer of a heavy metal warm-up band, an ex-bad ass biker played by Lundgren, and a young Russian F.S.B. agent team up to fight back. But our two heroes are seriously outnumbered and things aren't as simple as they appear when old ghosts from the Soviet Union appear to haunt the present in this fast paced action piece.Written by

German version was cut by ca. 2,5 minutes to secure a "Not under 18" rating. Almost every violent part was shortened or completely removed to achieve this. The German version was also presented in the wrong image aspect ratio of 1.78:1 instead of the original 2.35:1 cinemascope. See more »
I really enjoyed watching movies like Dark Angel, Red Scorpion and even He-Man ^^, but there are a lot of his movies which suck bad, mainly the new ones. So i wasn't really sure if I wanted to watch another one.
After watching the latest Universal Soldier, i thought i give him a chance and watched his Command Performance.
And what should i say more? I liked it. You don't have a Hollywood blockbuster but you have a decent action movie, with some good jokes and lots of action. I really liked the way they were going with violent scenes. Nice use of cuttings and blending.
10 is far to much but 5 is to less, so i go with 7 points.
Watch it on TV with your male friends.
