This movie is closer to movies John Woo did before he came to Hollywood. I'm talking about Hard Boiled and The Killer. These both had high melodrama and an emotionally troubled hero. Dolph does quite a good job of this and gives a pretty good performance.

Many people criticise Dolph for not being a good actor but when you forget that your watching him you'll realise that he's quite good despite never having any acting lessons. This is the first film in which I've seen him be a sort of father figure. I think he handles dialogue well and tries his best to do as much as he can in the mediocre roles he is offered. He should be in more high-profile movies and should climb out of the DTV hell his career is in. His best film so far is Joshua Tree but Blackjack is good to watch.

John Woo's style is written all over this film. More so than Broken Arrow (in which his style was entirely muted). Color schemes, camera tricks and slow-mo shootouts are all present in this movie. It's a little lacking, and confusing, in the plot department but when your having so much fun it doesn't matter THAT much.

I heard somewhere that there is soon to be a TV series of Blackjack. If there were I think I would enjoy it very much. The only thing stopping this from being a high-profile hit is the fact that it's a TV movie. But don't let that put you off.

The DVD is in Dolby surround and is in fullscreen.

Two blondes, a wimpy bad guy pitted up against a colossal Dolph Lundgren, and unexplainable motorcyclists...I do detect a John Woo hit here!
Black Jack gives a new name to B-movies with this incredibly ridiculous story of an unstoppable bodyguard who's only enemy is (dun dun DUN!!!) the color white. While battling his fear of milk, playing cards and his girlfriend's silk blouse, he is able to overcome New York city's toughest sniper...who cries at the sight of supermodels and hasn't really shot many people at all.
Dolph also shows his versatility in this film, as he adopts lovable 10-year-old neice, Casey, who displays about as much emotion when her parents are killed as the sole of my shoe does when it squishes a bug. But Lundgren plays well off a sexy, drugged up supermodel who wins his heart as he helps salsa dance her out of a Percodan coma. And we can't forget Dolph's cigar smoking D-cup wearing psychologist who gives housecalls in evening dresses and quotes Confucious, saying "you must face your biggest fears." Yeah, Confucious said that. In Chinese. 2500 years ago.
So really, suspend your disbelief that the police wouldn't be able to stop this incredibly wimpy killer - and that a supermodel with an obsessed fan and a drug habit is anything worthy of special attention - and that the skyline of Toronto REALLY resembles New York City - and that "where the hell do those renegade motorcyclists come from??" And we're talkin' best movie of ALL TIME!!!

Format: VHS Tape
Bodyguard for hire, Jack (Dolph Lundgren) is a man of his word and honor. First he comes to the rescue in protecting his friend's daughter, Casey, from mobsters out to kill her and then he lovingly adopts Casey when her parents are killed in an accident. When another one of his friends is shot trying to protect a beautiful model named Cinder, Jack takes on the job of protecting Cinder while finding her stalker. Jack is a strong, sensitive man who remains loyal to his friends and loved ones. He strives to improve himself and remain true to his values. For action fans, this movie is a bit weak in that regard. Although there is a lot of action in the beginning of the movie while Jack is defending Casey, he incurs a phobia during that fight and is unable to fight properly for the majority of the movie. This movie is laced with fantasy which is epitomized in his relationship with his sexy female counselor (which is so full of innuendo it hints at some guy's fantasy). Over all, it seems like the movie is an attempt to take an action genre plot and add depth to the main character. But since I tend to like sentimental stories, I easily overlooked the sappiness and enjoyed BlackJack.

Format: DVD
Since I was the most impressed by Dolph Lundgren out of everyone in 'The Expendables', I wanted to see more of his work besides 'The Punisher', 'Universal Soldier' and 'Johnny Mneumonic'. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of starting with 'Blackjack'. John Woo directed this made-for-TV pilot about a former US Marshall (Lundgren) assigned to protect a pill popping supermodel from a psychotic stalker. Sounds like it could be fun, right? Wrong. The acting and writing is atrocious and - worst of all - the direction by the usually exciting Woo is lifeless. Since this was made-for-TV, there's no blood, no profanity, no nudity, no excitement. But these aren't what ultimately hurt the film, that would be the absurd plot.

Early in the film - after a house shootout in which Dolph mows down a couple dozen bad guys - Lundgren gets temporarily blinded by an explosive device. In the aftermath of the explosion, he develops a bizarre phobia with the color white. Apparently this phobia has to do with the death of his father or something like that. Anyway, things get so bad that he has to wear shades all the time. Even with obstructed vision, he's still an expert marksman capable of hitting targets from great distances. As if he doesn't have his hands full what with his phobia and protecting a drug addicted floozy, he also becomes the legal guardian to a little girl whose parents died in a car crash. Dolph ain't exactly the nurturing type so parenting duties fall on his best friend/butler Thomas (character actor Saul Rubinek who is easily the highlight of the movie).
