Well, too bad it's a bad scan, it doesn't make it easy to like it (the cars seems like fast photoshop pastes).
And is that a serious project, or just a "Let's put his name and see if we can get some dough out of this" ("Angel Mountain") ?

Never heard of it but on IMDb it is listed as "in development". But Vinnie Jones in a Dolph-movie. Not a good sign.

Chuck Liddell:
I'm sure it's old hat for you talk about how an MMA fight is different from shooting a fight scene, so I won't ask you that. Instead, I want to ask, who would you like to fight in a movie? Do you have any personal cinema heroes you'd like to fight in a fictional setting?

I actually just did a movie, Acceleration, where I got to fight Dolph Lundgren. I'd been in a couple of movies with him before that, but I never had a real scene with him, or anything near a fight scene. We were in a big fight scene in Riot, in the prison, but we were never in the same room together. But I finally got to fight him in Acceleration. That was a moment where I was like, I used to watch movies with this guy in them, and now I actually get to do that now. I've worked out with Sylvester Stallone, but I definitely wouldn't mind being in a fight scene with him.

This is encouraging if the fight actually turns out well. You know what it's like with these shooting schedules, even The Expendables didn't dedicate a lot of time to the final one-on-one fights. The fight with Randy and Dolph in Hard Rush was okay. Nothing special. We know what to expect by now.

I think the name listed on Amazon is a mistake.

Hollywood’s latest obsession is aging action stars
https://nypost.com/2019/09/18/hollywood ... ion-stars/
“I think they’re icons,” producer Natalie Burn tells The Post. Her film “Acceleration,” starring Lundgren is out in November. “There are not that many actors today that are as good as these guys, so we’re still going back to the classics,” Burn says. “Audiences are missing those characters that they grew up on.”

“Acting is selling,” says producer Burn, also an actress who appeared with Stallone in 2014’s action all-star vehicle “The Expendables 3.” “As long as you can sell the audience that you are that character, then we’ll keep buying it.”

I don't know about the fights (and don't really care) but in my opinion this project has at least two assets to enhance the film however it turns out: DON'T KILL IT's Mike Mendez at editing and Jan-Michael Losada at the cinematography.

Some of the set photos from this the lighting looked really nice on and Don't Kill It is Dolph's most engaging lead role in ages.

I don't expect DON'T KILL IT here but stylised cinematography and good editing (if not altered by the powers that be) would are always welcome in today's low budget action world, and this is the sort of movie I'd never watch if Dolph wasn't in it.
