John Woo (1998)

18 Certificate


Our Score
Other than the presence of action-movie stalwart Dolph Lundgren and a few flashes of his trademark slow-mo gunplay, this is a depressingly ordinary action movie from Face/Off director John Woo. The mishmash of a plot finds ex-bodyguard Lundgren coming out of retirement to protect a supermodel from a deranged failed actor, while overcoming a bizarre phobia of the colour white (tricky really, particularly when he gets caught up in a fight in a milk factory). Made as a pilot for a television series that never materialised and released direct to video, this is really only for die-hard Woo fans.


A bodyguard is assigned to protect the life of a supermodel, and soon comes face-to-face with an assassin who appears to hold the key to an irrational fear plaguing him. John Woo's action thriller, starring Dolph Lundgren, Kate Vernon and Fred Williamson.
