Land mine expert Christian Erickson (Dolph Lundgren) makes a living as a barefist fighter, and is not interested when the Pentagon attempts to enlist his help tracking a land mine used in a terrorist attack on a senator. However, when the bomb squad's Michelle Flynn (Claire Stansfield) informs him that there is a plan to transfer a shipload of deadly mines to the United States, he agrees to help uncover the conspiracy before it is too late.

Yes he has made his fair share of stinkers (but then again how many actors haven't?), but amongst them there have been some highly entertaining films, some of my favourite examples are:
Command Performance [DVD]
Dark Angel [DVD]
Red Scorpion [DVD]
Army Of One (aka Joshua Tree)
Cover Up [DVD]
This film 'Sweepers' is probably below most of the ones above in overall quality, but is some way from being a bad film and definitely has one of the more intriguing plots featured in a Dolph Lundgren film.
Released in 1998 the film is set primarily in Angola and big Dolph plays a character called Christian Erickson, he is a member of an organisation titled the Humanitarian Order of Chivalry, a charity that utilises teams of 'sweepers' to clear land mines in war torn countries.
The film begins with Lundgren's character on assignment in Angola, unbeknownst to Christian his 11 year-old son Johnny follows his father to a mine field and during a rebel attack is killed when he steps on a land mine.Read more ›

Although the acting stumbles in a few places, the flow of the movie is fairly consistent. When I saw the headliner (Lundgren), I was expecting another testosterone-packed Rocky IV/Universal Soldier creation. I was mistaken, and pleasantly so. The artistry of the movie, the timeliness of the storyline, and the intelligence of the plot truly impressed me. There are no strange lapses in time, and no anomalous jumps in location to leave the viewer's forehead wrinkled in confusion. That said, the movie has a wonderful soundtrack which mixes some African elements and songs with strong symphonic movements. The cinematography alone is spectacular. The movie is not meant to be a primer on the problem of landmines and never makes any such claim. It does offer some contextual information at both the beginning and the end, enough to encourage individual research.
Many movies about Africa, particularly those of Western production, focus on a few white [enlightened] people in a mostly[backwards] African country. It leaves one with the feeling that the African people are background to the more important white people, and in fact, that all Africans are disenfranchised and all whites motivated by beneficence. In this film, we see a more balanced approach that more closely approximates all people, i.e., that greed and avarice are truly found across the spectrum.
I stumbled across this movie in a value bin a few years ago, and I have continued to give it as a stocking stuffer ever since. I never get tired of watching it, and I am glad to share such a touching and inspiring piece of work about a little understood topic with as many as I can.
He also sounds different. His voice is gravelly. Like he's smoked 100 cigars a day for a decade. But I guess this is him just getting into character, too bad it's not interesting but it's nice to see the effort. There should plenty for Dolph to get his teeth into here and lots of opportunity for a hot-potato of a movie. Land mines are a delicate issue but at some point in the movie it all collapses into standard action-man territory.
The beginning is badly directed, some shootouts seems really false and the trailer is, by far, the WORST I have ever seen. The DVD has plain old stereo sound with a pan and scanned fullscreen picture. Avoid it.
