THE DOLPH LUNDGREN VIEWERS' GUIDE

DARK ANGEL
Sit back, relax and set your brain to melted because Dark Angel is the utterly ludicrous, explosion-filled Dolph Lundgren classic you've been waiting for. Squaring off against Dolph's rule-breaking Houston cop is Talec, a violent extraterrestrial drug dealer with a nasty habit of firing space drugs into humans to extract their endolphins endorphins to make yet more space drugs. Bombastic, fantastic and easily beaten in the Google rankings by James Cameron's Dark Angel TV series, if you watch only one Lundgren movie today, make it A View To A Kill... then Dark Angel. Sorted.

ROCKY IV
Playing Ivan Drago, the most ruthlessly trained athlete ever, Lundgren has the privilege of actually killing Apollo Creed in his very first professional fight. The resulting US vs. USSR grudge match is jingoistic nonsense of the highest order, the Rocky movie that totally does away with realism and replaces it with stars and stripes-shorted, utterly predictable, infrequently laughable Cold War nonsense, but also gave Dolph his most iconic role – and the chance to say the immortal words that would be grunted at him forever more: "I must break you."

SHOWDOWN IN LITTLE TOYKO
Before his tragic accident on the set of The Crow, Brandon Lee was introduced to American audiences in this, his first Hollywood movie. Partnering with Dolph Lundgren as buddy cops hell bent on taking out the Los Angeles Yakuza, much of the comedy work is in Lee's hands, though Lundgren does get to take out a room of bad guys whilst holding onto a cup of miso soup and partake in an epic nightclub brawl where he dishes out punishment with a serving tray. Plus, Dolph gets to enjoy an illegal underground fight: "Five Grand on the new guy!" shouts one suit-clad goon. "That's a good bet," comes his reply.

2 "Dark Angel" aka "I Come In Peace" (US Title)
For the record, Dark Angel with Dolph Lundgren has my favourite movie line of all-time. After Dolph and his partner arrest the alien villain, he promptly self-destructs on the back seat of their cop car. "Did you see that?" Dolph says to partner Brian Benben. "Did I see it?" Benben replies, "it nearly blew my fucking face off!" Read More

3 Stallone's Demolition Man is the funniest film he's ever made, far funnier than his alleged comedies like Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot or Oscar. As for First Blood, I totally agree with Empire that it's "a first-rate, taught action thriller that still doesn't quite get the respect it deserves." First Blood was tainted by unproven association with Hungerford spree killer Michael Ryan. The book of First Blood is even better with many things left out that should have been in the movie and would have improved things even more (but DON'T remake it, please!) Read More
