Black Jack is ok. Disappointing for a John Woo project though. I use to hit fast forward when "the evil whacko" is babbling. You'll see what I mean. But I was surprised to see that Dolph seems to be a good dancer! There's one dancing scene where he seems to have a lot of fun. Wonder why he has problems with erotic scenes when he dances so relaxedly.

Jill Rips was a disappointment. Very interesting background but not good what they made of it. Could have been a stimulating ;-) movie but wasn't at all. I hate it when Dolph plays an alcoholic. Not convincing with such a body!

comeone JILL RIPS is not so bad and it wasn't meant to be a Dolph Lundgren-like-movie (btw I remind some of you that it's the adaptation of a novel that has nothing to do with SEVEN or anything like that). Also Mosquito I think that he plays alcoholism in a much better way than how he did in SWEEPERS (by the way it's not the first time as he was also an alcoholic temporarily in PENTATHLON & MEN OF WAR). I'm glad Dolph did this movie and I don't want see him play supermen endlessly

Blackjack was very bad.
I had huge expectations for Jill the Ripper and it was a huge disappointment. Still, I think it is worth a look.

Well I think Blackjack is only a decent movie. It is well acted and has sturdy direction but the movie lacks action. It has really only 3 action sequences and one is really short. The best action sequence is the 2 one in the movie and it might be one of the best action sequences Dolph has ever done. But the movie is around 2 hours long and it needs at least one more action sequence becaues the film drags on near the end. Still Blackjack is a movie that is worht owning if you are a Dolph fan.

Jill the Ripper I think is one of Dolphs best movies. However if you are only interested in Dolph being a mindless killing machine you will hate this movie. The first time I saw Jill Rips I hated it. Around the fifth time I say the movie I realized that it is a great film. The pacing is a little but the acting is one of Dolphs best performances. The real proplem with the film I beleave is the fight scenes. 2 of them could have been better and longer. I like the fact that he got beaten up but I feel that the fights should have been more brutal and longer.

Don't forget that jill ripps is a novel's adaptation.

For blackjack I love this movie, Dolph was perfectible with his white phobia. It's a romantic hero in the literary meaning
