Editorial Reviews

Mike Riggins (Dolph Lundgren), an imprisoned ex-U.S. Special Forces operative in Russia, is given a chance at freedom if he can rescue Ana, an abducted American woman. Shortly after freeing her, he discovers that the kidnapping story was just a ruse. Mike suddenly finds himself pursued by ruthless government, paramilitary and underworld organizations -- all of whom want them dead. With no one to turn to, and the enemies closing in, Mike must uncover the truth about Ana and bring her to safety.

If you must see it, do yourself a favor and rent it.

All I can say at this point is that I am now seriously contemplating to discontinue my cable subscription if it airs another movie as bad as this one.
Voight Kampff
Oh-those are the more subtle lines in the dialog by the way.

Format: DVD
Although the action scenes are decent, the stunts executed fairly well, and the story fairly plausible, Direct Contact (2009) suffers from `lazy filmmaking'. There is a lack of attention to detail, a lack of effort in the writing of dialog, and a basic disregard for logic and reality, that detracts from what is otherwise a serviceable comic book action adventure. Since Danny Lenner both wrote and directed the film, the source of the problems appears clear.

Dolph Lungren is Mike Riggins, a former US marine doing time in a Balkan prison, for dealing in contraband. Riggins is offered money and his freedom, in return for freeing a kidnapped woman named Ana Gale, (Gina Marie May) who is being held captive in a guarded military compound. Clive Connelly (Michael Pare), supposedly associated with the US embassy, brokers the deal and arranges for Riggins release.

Riggins speaks to Vlado Karadjov (Vladimir Vladimirov), the man holding the woman hostage. After Vlado refuses to free her, Riggins raids the encampment, takes Ana by force, and leaves the place in flames. Things get confusing, as Ana says she has not been kidnapped, and after showing up at a meeting with Connelly without Ana, Riggins is fleeing across the city on a motorcycle, dodging bullets. He catches up with Ana at a train station, and from there the pair is continuously on the run, as she is actually the heir to a huge fortune. At 35, Gina May is in excellent physical condition.

Dolph Lundgren has been doing pretty well directing his own films, and probably would have done a better job directing this one than Danny Lenner.

I don't have high hopes on movies written and directed by Danny Lerner and Dolph's direct-to-DVD movies have been of varying quality. "Direct Contact" was better than I expected. There's nothing original about the plot but it's entertaining, with a fast pace and plenty of action. This is Dolphh's best movie in some time. Recommended for action fans. 3+

Format: DVD
The story: Mike Riggins (Lundgren), an ex-Special Forces veteran of Kosovo, is promised release from his unjust incarceration at a Bulgarian prison by a shady businessman (Michael Paré, Streets of Fire) if he can rescue an American woman (Gina May, "Undressed", "Malibu, CA") from the control of a sadistic general (Bashar Rahal, Hannibal: Rome's Worst Nightmare). However, when it becomes clear that the girl was not kidnapped but is being stalked for darker reasons, Mike must fight for his life as he attempts to bring her safely to the American embassy.

If nothing else, "Direct Contact" stands out for being the most action-packed of all of Lundgren's recent pre-Expendables fare. More so than any of the no-namers who wrangled Dolph's fare in the last several years, director Danny Lerner (Sharks in Venice) realized what fans want to see the Swedish Superman involved in and delivers it satisfactorily: three hand-to-hand fights, three big car chases, a smattering of shootouts, and more blowing up of stuff than in the latest Rambo movie. Van Damme and Seagal have yet to find themselves a vehicle which so admirably brings back the over-the-top action content of yesteryear like Lundgren has, and for this, this one should be of immediate interest to fans.

Format: DVD
Watching Dolph Lundgren portraying an American in Danny Lerner's "Direct Contact" reminded me of the Swedish actor's early films, when he could barely speak English! At 52, he has mastered the language, has aged and weathered into a tough, believable action hero, and makes the implausibilities of this multi-national production much easier to ignore! This isn't great cinema, but it is fun, with beautiful Bulgarian locations, the underrated Michael Paré ("Streets of Fire") a quite servicable villain, and very youthful-looking Gina May, at 35, making up for a lack of acting skill with beauty and a surprising physical prowess as the female lead.

Lundgren, with his height and presence, reminds me of John Wayne, in his films of the 1950s. Neither actor is particularly graceful, but whenever action is required, both brawl with unbelievable power. Lundgren disposes of the private army of villainous General Drago (Bashar Rahal) as efficiently as Arnold Schwarzenegger did, in "Commando", taking two bullet wounds stoically as the body count rises. While you know he and May will fall for each other, their love scene is short and surprisingly well-played, with Lundgren's huge grin erasing his years, and making the moment less far-fetched than you'd initially think.

If you aren't hung up on reality, like your fights more 'real' than CGI-created, and are a fan of the action genre, you could do a LOT worse than "Direct Contact"...I liked it!
