That's right, asshole. Dolph Lundgren is 'The Killing Machine.'

I have but two words: FUCK. YEAH.

Here's the deal. I've kinda got a thing about Dolph Lundgren. I'm not ashamed to admit it. The man affects me. As such, even though I've pretty much missed any of the movies he's made in the last decade or so, this trailer rocks my world.

I love the title alone; the way 'Dolph Lundgren is' seems to be part of it, as well it should be. I love the knowing pun in the 'this man is not expendable' tagline. I love that this dude, well into his fifties, looks to be kicking ass even harder than he did twenty five years ago. I love... shit, I'll just say it, I love me some Dolph.

Just in case you need further persausion, here's the synopsis:

To his friends, family and colleagues, Edward Genn (Lundgren) is an ordinary man, a divorced father with a steady job working for an investment company. However, to others Genn is known as Icarus, a ruthless killing machine and former US sleeper agent once based in the Soviet Empire. Determined to break away and leave his dark past behind, Genn has started over with a new identity, but he soon learns you can only escape your past for so long.

When an unexpected incident in Hong Kong results in Icarus’ cover being blown, past and present collide and the one-time assassin realizes he is now the target. Worse, the people that want him dead will stop at nothing to get to him and that means going after those he cares about most—his wife and daughter.
With his life at stake, Icarus is forced to face the demons of his past in order to protect the loved ones in his present. He must fight to save the only thing he’s ever done right in his life by uncovering those who are after him and protecting his family before it’s too late.
Dolph Lundgren Is The Killing Machine comes to Region 2 DVD and Blu Ray on 16th August, courtesy of Anchor Bay. Just you try and stop me from reviewing it.

Once more - FUCK. YEAH.
