First Look: Badass Photos from Dolph Lundgren's Icarus
Even at 51 years old, former Frank Castle and Swedish martial arts actor Dolph Lundgren is still going strong, still making movies. Although he's set to appear in Stallone's Expendables, Lundgren is finishing work on a project called Icarus first, a film that he not only stars in but is also directing. Sure, this could probably be categorized as a B-movie, but considering we haven't really seen Lundgren in a big action movie in, well, quite a long time, it's great (or maybe it's not) to see him showing up in the news yet again. The plot is pretty bland and unoriginal, but these photos (via Quiet Earth) actually look pretty damn cool.
"Everyone knows him as a divorced father working for an investment company. But, there is a dark side to this mild mannered man. Icarus (Dolph Lundgren) is at his best when he was killing people."
"For years, Icarus actually worked as a sleeper agent in America, but when the Soviet Empire collapsed, he found himself in a foreign country with no one to trust. Determined to break from his dark past, he starts over with a new identity. But you can only escape your past for so long." And of course, your past will catch up to you, then go after your wife and daughter, and you have to kick their ass before they kill everyone. Does anyone else want to watch Rocky IV or Universal Soldier or Masters of the Universe after looking at these? It's good to have Lundgren back, but he'll never be as great as he was back then. Thoughts?
