It may have never been in cinemas but they saw it on video or DVD, don't worry ;)
Reminding me how back in the day when ROCKY IV came out in the West, it was a huge in Russia as a bootleg VHS (story and archive footage in the documentary "Rocky IV: The American Punch")...

The underrated film acting performances of 2018

Dolph Lundgren, Creed II

Rocky IV is a cartoon, and Ivan Drago is its most cartoonish character. Literally set up as a supervillain for Rocky Balboa to fight, Drago was Dolph Lundgren’s first major Hollywood role, but it’s not like this stern superman required much in the way of acting chops. The biggest success of Creed II is in taking that character and making his taciturn, blank-slate exterior into a real character, as a man who takes out his own failures on his giant son, Viktor.

He’s only about as chatty as he was before, but this time around, he’s more emotionally dangerous than physically imposing. Ingeniously, the sequel develops him into a three-dimensional character by expanding on what little we already know about him. Sylvester Stallone bagged himself plenty of Best Supporting Actor nominations for Creed, and while that’s clearly not in the cards for Lundgren, this is still his finest acting work to date.

Highlight: Creed II marks the first time in the Rocky franchise that somebody has actually thrown in the towel on a fight, and ironically, the climactic moment where Ivan saves Viktor is an absolute knockout. What Lundgren does with a look, finally showing how much he loves his son, is almost unparalleled in a franchise that already excels at this kind of thing.This time, he really did break us.

Following on being a Marvel character in RED SONJA, Nielsen also briefly talks about the aborted SHE-HULK that New World had announced in 1990 at the same time as THE PUNISHER II...
