Dolph Lundgren is the two-time winner of the European Karate Championship. His impressive body and charismatic face were perfect for the Swedish behemoth to play the roles of the toughest action heroes. His debut role in Rocky IV as Soviet boxing berserker Ivan Drago was amazing. He had a long and successful career giving us his performances in many great genre classics. Here is the list of the Top 5 best movies by Dolph Lundgren.
Best Movies Of Dolph Lundgren
5. Skin Trade(2014)
The movie was based on finishing a human trafficking ring run by the Serbian mafia in Thailand. Tony Jaa and Dolph Lundgren were teamed up in this movie. This movie is an action pack movie, but it has some brutal violence and disturbing scenes. The movie moves at a very slow pace with tons of great fight scenes for both the actors. Dolph delivered another amazing performance as a tragic character. The skin trade is a modern action cinema and an action thriller that every action fan would love.
4. Red Scorpian(1988)
It was Dolph’s second movie as the main lead. Like Rocky VI, he has the same role as a Soviet Character. Nikolai is sent to an African country to kill a local rebel leader. When he reaches there, he witnesses cruelty committed by the Soviet military and their Cuban allies. He comes to his senses, chooses a side, and the performance begins! Many of the moments in Red Scorpion have an almost meditative ambiance for an action movie, which gives the film an oddly unique feel. In a particularly corny interlude, a group of native Americans saves Nikolai from certain death in the desert, and he later acquires the mystical abilities of the red scorpion.
3. Showdown in Little Tokyo
Two LA cops, also martial arts masters, go after a Yakuza gang. In the movie Showdown in Little Tokyo, the unstoppable combination of Dolph Lundgren and Brandon Lee as cop buddies can be seen. This film was considered to be Lundgren’s most amazing performance in an action movie, and Lee cracking jokes all the time made it more perfect.
Rocky IV is the highlight of Dolph Lundgreen’s career. It was one of the best movies. This was an amazing sports drama with jaw-dropping intensity. It’s political and epic. This is what makes it unique. It’s unreplaceable in every respect. The cinematography and soundtrack of the movie made it the ultimate sports action movie. In this movie, a Soviet boxer Ivan Drago visits the US to show his super skills, and Rocky and Apollo Creed accept his challenge.
1. Universal Soldier(1992)
Our top film in this ranking also has Lundgren as a villain, similar to our number two. In the Vietnam War, we slay Luc Deveraux while attempting to stop his superior, Andrew Scott, from committing war crimes. n a covert government program, both bodies are maintained and transformed into super soldiers, Hen.
