Nikolai (Dolph Lundgren) is a Russian Spetznaz agent assigned to murder the leader of an African rebel movement. When he encounters the guerrilla faction, Nikolai discovers that he is sympathetic to their cause and, plagued by doubt, he botches the assassination.

Review

The Guardian

Best label 2011

Arrow

"It's often the smaller-funded labels that do the best work. Arrow has released marvellous discs of many of cinema's classics, such as Bicycle Thieves, Rififi and Les Diaboliques, but it's for their horror releases that they truly excel. The more respectable directors like George A Romero and Dario Argento get their due here, but Arrow also pull out all the stops for such (unfairly) lesser regarded Gore-teurs as Lucio Fulci and Frank Henenlotter. Blu-rays of Fulci classics The Beyond and City Of The Living Dead show that the films are far more atmospheric and better made than they ever appeared before, and for Henenlotter (with the imminent Frankenhooker disc) you get extensive extras that cover the rarely examined scene of low-budget New York film-makers and the lost grindhouses of Times Square and 42nd Street."

Format: DVD
Virtually banned before its release for filming in parts of South Africa, this achieved its audience on VHS and thankfully is now available on DVD. This is Dolph's RAMBO and he has a cracking time here as the Spetsnaz advisor sent into the bush to kill the leader of an African rebel movement. After his eyes are opened as to the plight of the indigenous population he turns his considerable killing skills towards his former masters. Some of the interior scenes aren't particularly well lit but the rest is well put together. There's a bit of comic relief in the form of M Emmet Walsh and no love interest to speak of, but this is an action picture and it delivers in spades. The combat scenes are first class and I particularly like the moments when he stalks fellow "advisors" through the compound corridors before bringing down a massive Hind gunship carrying his treacherous commander. The production values aren't as polished as either Rambo or Commando but it's just as fun.

Format: Blu-ray
This is an awesome and highly entertaining action movie from the 80's starring Dolph Lundgren. Dolph plays a Spetznaz killing machine called in to kill a rebel leader, but then realises later on that something is not quite right. This movie has loads of explosions and gun fights and will keep any action fan happy for a little over one and a half hours.

The picture quality on the Arrow Blu ray is very good. There is plenty of detail especially in the day time scenes, it does have some natural film grain and the odd specks of dirt but that is to be expected for an old movie and on the whole im very happy with this Blu ray. The audio which is LPCM 2.0 is very good also.

I was going to get the US Blu ray but i got put off it because they used a process to remove all the specks and dirt from the picture, but something went wrong and they actually removed some parts of the picture as well, like in one frame Dolph's face is actually missing in the US version! So im glad i went with the UK one.

Overall if you like highly entertaining action movies with plenty of gun battles and explosions, BUY THIS!

This is Dolph Lundgrens commando, a truly now cult classic action movie from the awesome 80s, theres plenty of action, explosions and shootouts and Dolph flexing his muscles! Arrow films have done a good job of transferring it as it looks great, you get the usual cool new artwork on the cover and free poster etc and some cool features, if you love the 80s then this is a must.

'Red Scorpion' was made during a golden era of testosterone fuelled 'one man army' style movies. It was obviously designed as a vehicle to put Dolph Lundgren in the big league of action stars at the time, but it doesn't quite hit the mark.
On the plus side, the film looks good, moves along at a decent pace and has the required amount of gunfire and explosions to satisfy fans of the genre. In terms of the lead actor, Dolph is quite a fearsome, athletic looking specimen who looks terrific in the action sequences. He doesn't have a great deal of dialogue to get through, which suits the robotic, monosyllabic nature of the assassin he's playing.
On the downside, the plot of 'Red Scorpion' amounts to nothing more than the sort of myth-laden Soviet-bashing that was so commonplace in US movies at the time. The attitude was always America = good and USSR = bad. It was a bit laughable back then and it's downright embarrassing now. Here we have a muddled mess of a story, involving persecuted African villagers, sneering Soviet and Cuban villains and a disillusioned, double-crossed Dolph finding the road to redemption via a giggling bushman. Classic 80s B-movie villain Brion James pops up with a dreadful Russian accent and M. Emmett Wash gets to swear a lot.
As a brainless, retro action romp, and showcase of Dolph's action hero credentials, 'Red Scorpion' does a decent job and is pretty typical of the kind of movies served up at the time. It's ok as a bit of late night movie nostalgia, but time hasn't been kind to it I'm afraid.
