Poorly-veiled knock-off of the Rambo movies

"Katsottu: 13.10.2012 Miitti oli sellaisessa vaiheessa, että oli aivan vitun sama, mitä taustalla pyöri. Unicum oli vienyt voiton ja kaikilla oli varsin tukeva humalatila yllä. Elokuva Red Scorpion oli astetta kevyempi kuin muistin. Dolph on edelleen helvetin kova sankari ja maisemat olivat kauniita, mutta itse toiminta oli tylsää ja varsin kevyttä, kun ottaa huomioon kyseisen aikakauden."

My movie year 2012 (703 movies items)

"Blu-ray (miitti) Dolph Lungren on aina ihan fantsu sankari, vaikka itse elokuvat olisivatkin silkkaa roskaa. Red Scorpionissa hengaillaan aavikolla hengailemasta päästyään eikä mikään ole siistiä, vaikka Unicum-pullo olikin tyhjentynyt jo ajat sitten. Onneksi tälläiset elokuvat ovat olemassa parvekkeella istuskelua ja maailmanparantamista varten, tai vaihtoehtoisesti murehtimalla aivan käsittämättömiä päähänpinttymiä olohuoneen lattialla makaamasta käsin."

"03.07.2012 "Are you out of your mind?" "No. Just out of bullets." What a great blu-ray treatment this film got from Arrow Video. That is very unusual for these cult classic action films. I love this film. Dolph Lundgren kicks a lot of ass here. "

"6.3, DVD Dolph lähetetään tappamaan vastapuolen johtaja, mutta selviääkin että vastapuoli onkin ihan ookoo porukkaa, joten Dolppa vaihtaa puolta ja rupeaa tappelemaan omaa pomoa ja hänen kätyreitään vastaan. Samanlainen idea toistuu hyvin monessa Lundgrenin elokuvassa, ja harmittaakin että tällainen seikka on tähänkin pitänyt tunkea, sillä alku on varsin viihdyttävää mättöä ja antaa katsojalle luvan odottaa pelkkää aivot narikkaan -meininkiä. Edellämainitun tyyppinen k"

" I love me some good 80's action, but i never really got around to watching any of Dolph's movies (except for Universal Soldier and Rocky IV) so i bought two of his films a few days ago, and they were pretty good. First Red Scorpion. It was a really fun movie. It got everything a great 80's action film needs. Cool action scenes, a really cool hero and a terrible script with bad acting. Its a great movie to have on in the backround while you are working on your computer (like i did). I will p"

"Watched: 23.1 PC Naapurimaamme ylpeys toimintafaneille Dolph Lundgren pyöräytteli 80-luvulla monia klassikkotoimintapätkiä. Kuten tämän, Punisherin ja Rocky IV:n. Kaikki noista on täydellistä viihdettä, EIKÄ MITÄÄN MUUTA. Red Scorpion on tyypillinen kasaripätkä. Pääosassa joku tunnettu lihaskimppu ja M-60 hauikselle ja eikun tappamaan joko vietnamilaisia tai venäläisiä, tällä kertaa viimeksi mainittuja. Dolph ei kyllä voi näyttelijäntaidoillaan paljon leveillään. Tosi"

Poorly-veiled knock-off of the Rambo movies

“"You lied to me General!"

The real star of Red Scorpion (an '80s action-adventure movie set in the fictional African country of Mombaka) is the glistening, muscle-bound torso of actor Dolph Lundgren. Whenever the action ceases for a period of time, this element becomes the film's primary visual focus. And since the Dolphster is perpetually stone-faced and only occasionally speaks to issue clichéd commands in a hesitant monotone, his heaving chest manages to convey more emotion than his inarticulate lips. While this is more or less a given considering that the 1980s was a period of Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Red Scorpion is a comparatively subpar effort for one simple reason: lack of quality action.

In the film, Lundgren portrays a Spetsnaz (that is, ” read more
