Red Scorpion

Does this scorpion have a sting in its tail?

Not content with challenging Rocky, monosyllabic Dolph Lundgren grunts after Rambo’s crown in this thudding actioner from Joseph Zito, auteur of Chuck Norris flicks like Missing In Action.

The ’80s He-Man stars as a Russian army officer dispatched to Africa to neutralise a revolutionary leader. He’s supposed to go through a political awakening, but Swedish-born Lundgren conveys about as much depth as a flat-packed Billy bookcase from IKEA.

A clutch of extras include a director commentary and the star’s to-camera reminisces.
