My bad for his nationality ;)
And yes, his work was great. He made his way, he has plenty of interesting work nowadays ;)

Jerry Springer was the interim host on a satellite radio show last week. I called in, was able to get through, and asked Jerry about his experiences working on THE DEFENDER, particularly working with D... Here's the show. Scroll to roughly the 1:06:30 mark where we have our DEFENDER conversation... :lol:

Nice, well done! ;) He actually sounds really nice.
Wonder how did he get to do the kind of shows that he does or used to do...

I dig this film so much because unlike some of the other Romanian productions that I've seen, it looks so professional in every area (acting, style, edits, B-roll, fights, music, camera, etc.) and Dolph was clearly invested in telling an unusual hybrid of politics, thrills and espionage, all without being simplified, convoluted or just way too much to take in all at one time.

Nowadays, while this already has been compared to the likes of Assault on Precinct 13, Die Hard, Air Force One and even Dolph's own The Peacekeeper, this definitely will sit well with the kind of Action crowds who eat up Olympus Has Fallen, Bourne Identity, Taken or even TV shows such as 24 and MI-5/Spooks. It's a worthwhile flick and one of many times where I have to tell people to check it out despite them finding it bizarre that it went DTV or has Jerry Springer acting in it. So hard to convince people to take a chance once in awhile. :x

The special effects were done by SFX legend Bob Keen, whose credits include the HELLRAISER and WAXWORK films, HIGHLANDER, NIGHTBREED, CANDYMAN, most of Anthony Hickox's movies including the dead mutilated bodies for Hickox's JILL RIPS and more...

Nice trivia, I didn't know that (Keen is also responsible of the werewolf in Dog Soldiers by the new Hellboy's Neil Marshall).

Dolph actually had a talented crew on this film, and Bob Keen's blood and bone crunching effects participated greatly in the qualities of the movie.
