10 Die Hard Movies That Aren’t Die Hard Movies
On a train or on a plane, but never with a McClane


Die Hard… At An Arena Concert

Command Performance (2009)

Director:
Dolph Lundgren (The Defender, The Mechanik)

Villain’s agenda: Revenge against the Russian president

Overlooked hero? Yes: he was getting stoned in the toilet

Yippee-Ki-Yay Moment: “Well, I guess the show’s over.”

This is a latecomer to the cycle; it’s only three years old. What we have here is Dolph Lundgren (who also directed) as the drummer in a rock band, maneuvered into position as all-round day-saver when terrorists invade a Soviet concert venue. His band CMF (Cheap Mother Fuckers) are a sort of post-grunge affair, opening for a dance pop star (kind of like Turbowolf opening for Jessie J) which doesn’t bear much scrutiny, but hey, it’s Russia. It turns out that Dolph is an ex-Hell’s Angel who had sworn off violence. Thankfully that doesn’t last long.

Oh this wasn't supposed to pop up, Google+ association with Youtube and the new YT layout kinda screwed up my channel... anyway, I already posted this in COMMAND PERFORMANCE's topic 3 years ago, didn't I ?

For those, not aware of it, I did a 20 minutes interview for the French DVD&BD edition of COMMAND PERFORMANCE (one of the two most completes with the Spanish one) about the genesis and production of it, and there's a few more general bits about Dolph's career, notably as a director, like here in this clip.

Thankfully that's just a 2 min clip from the whole thing, here's the translation, happy birthday Mosquito! (isn't it coming or recently passed?) :wink:
"Dolph is a fan of Clint Eastwood, he's a fan of westerns obviously, and as for many filmmakers, the western genre is also his basis and his matrix. So even when he's makes COMMAND PERFORMANCE he goes back to the western genre...

Since he started directing, each of Dolph's films has a distinct visual and narrative style. THE DEFENDER was a 90 mins non-top "shoot-them-up" thriller. Six months later, he directed THE MECHANIK in the vein of Bronson and Sam Pekinpah, with a slower and grounded pace, in which he looks for the characters. And again, for his third movie MISSIONARY MAN, it's a western all the way, minimalist and almost mystic, going for a more epurated style.

Dolph tries to make different movies each time and tries to experiment. He's someone who experiments, and also comes back to his predilection themes, and there's already a line drawn, a way, in the thematics of his filmography as a director. Because we can put THE DEFENDER and COMMAND PERFORMANCE together, both similar by certain aspects, then THE MECHANIK echoes a little the movie he did after COMMAND PERFORMANCE, ICARUS, which is more of a more serious and intimate "film noir", and after MISSIONARY MAN Dolph is getting ready to make another western... So there's a way being built already."

Hehe, thanks for the translation! A bit too early as a birthday present. As you might remember, we can shake hands at midnight when my birthday ends and yours begins!

Still no Dutch release for this one. Very very strange, because every new Lundgren movie gets a Dutch release, and they skipped this one.

French cable TV spot
http://www.programme-tv.net/videos/band ... 7-26-mars/

441.000 viewers - 1,8% market share in prime time

300.000 viewers - 2.5% late night market share

http://www.programme-tv.net/videos/band ... 7-26-mars/
Sur la TNT, le cinéma d’action trouve toujours son public. Malgré les rediffusions et les chaînes, chaque téléfilm avec Steven Seagal et, dans une moindre mesure Dolph Lundgren, enregistre des audiences à faire pâlir la concurrence.

Ce mercredi 9 avril, les bras musclés du cinéma américain étaient tous les deux au programme de la soirée de D17. En prime time, Mercenary a conquis 587 000 téléspectateurs, plaçant ainsi Steven Seagal dans le peloton de tête de la TNT. Au niveau de sa part de marché, le film a affiché 2.4% sur les 4 ans et plus.

En deuxième partie de soirée, Commando d’élite a conservé l’attention de près de 300 000 amateurs du genre. Le téléfilm réalisé par Dolph Lundgren (2009) a réuni en moyenne 2.5% du public. Image
