As Anchor Bay UK released ONE IN THE CHAMBER onto DVD and Blu-ray on 27th August starring the ultimate head to hear pairing of DOLPH LUNDGREN and CUBA GOODING JR, we thought we would have a look at other action legends Dolph has gone up against!
1. ONE IN THE CHAMBER
It’s hitman vs. hitman in this explosive action-thriller. Dolph Lundgren goes head to head with Oscar® winner Cuba Gooding Jr. The pair star as two super-efficient killing machines, pitted against each other in an out and out mob war! Watch the trailer below.
In this monster action franchise Dolph plays mercenary Gunnar Jensen in the all star line up of action greats including Sly Stallone, Jason Statham and Mickey Rourke. ‘But he doesn’t go head to head with these guys’ I hear you cry! Ah, you must be forgetting Dolph’s fight scene with martial arts master Jet Li as Gunnar goes rouge! Watch it again below:
3. UNIVERSAL SOLDIER
In this 90’s action movie Dolph plays Andrew Scott a member of the army killed in action in Vietnam. Alongside his colleague Luc Deveraux (Jean-Claude Van Damme) they are entered into a secret project reanimating the dead as near-perfect soldiers. Who could forget the epic final fight scene between Dolph and Jean-Claude?
4. SHOWDOWN IN LITTLE TOKYO
Starring alongside Dolph Lundgren is the late Brandon Lee in his first American film role. Set in Los Angeles, California, two police officers attempt to take down a new and deadly Japanese drug gang. Watch these two martial arts masters in the trailer below.
5. ROCKY IV
When Apollo Creed is killed in a match against a powerful Soviet boxer, Rocky decides to challenge him himself. Rocky IV sees Dolph Lundgren wade into this monstrous franchise and pits him against Sylvester Stallone. A pairing that gave us some of the 80’s most memorable fight scenes and ultimately led to the birth of the Expendables some 20 years later.
6. COMMAND PERFORMANCE
When the Russian Premier is taken hostage at a rock concert in Moscow, it’s up to Joe – a drummer and ex-biker – to save him. This rock-musical epic showcases Dolph at his finest as an action tour de force, taking on a swathe of bad guys with effortless swagger. His final fight scene with Dave Legeno is not to be missed.
7. MEN OF WAR
As former Special Ops soldier Nick Gunar, Dolph leads a group of mercenaries to an island in the South China Sea: their mission to obtain the rights to the unusual treasure that the island beholds. Featuring an old-school, bare-knuckled head to head against the rock-hard Trevor Goddard, Men of War proves Dolph can kick ass without the heavy armament!
8. THE PUNISHER
Facing an army of masked ninjas, Dolph puts his martial arts skills to the test in this 80s classic., culminating in an epic one-on-one with the formidable Jeroen Krabbé: a man who refuses to go down quietly (even after being shot!) Has Dolph finally met his match?
9. COVER UP
Dolph stars as Mike Anderson, a tough American reporter on a dangerous foreign assignment who finds his own life in jeopardy when he uncovers a deadly labyrinth of political intrigue that threatens the lives of thousands. Fending off one particularly determined assassin in his hotel room, Dolph proves a force to be reckoned with.
10. BRIDGE OF DRAGONS
Featuring an explosive head-to-head rematch with his Showdown in Little Tokyo nemesis Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Dolph stars as ice-cold mercenary, Warchild, in this action-packed military classic. Dolph’s roundhouse kick to Tagawa’s head alone makes Bridge of Dragons worthy of a Top 10 spot!
ONE IN THE CHAMBER arrived on DVD and Blu-ray on 27th August 2012
