I caught this on TV and had nothing better to do. I've seen some of Dolph's movies, and had always liked him since Rocky IV. I was even excited to see him in Masters of the Universe, and had entered a contest to be in the movie. I didn't win (and it would have been just a walk-on, non-speaking part anyway), but was pretty disappointed with the movie. Maybe I'll give it another shot. Dolph was great in Universal Soldier, but has made many flops since.

This movie, though nothing spectacular about the plot, has just the basic action theme that is all too familiar: mysterious man comes into town for a funeral, hangs around for a while and gets into trouble with the local mob who control the town, mysterious man falls for a local (though it IS a family and not the town hussie), mob calls for back-up, mysterious man kills back-up and leaves town.

I think what made this stand out from so many other movies is the acting. With exception to the main boss character, everyone in the film is so believable in their role that I almost cried when people started dying. That or I've just got an attachment to Dolph and he reminded me of the unstoppable Russian Ivan Drago he played 25 years ago. Dolph is as bad as they come in this movie. A real savage with heart!

Dolph's on both sides of the camera this time(not to mention he cowrote the script too) in this nifty little revenge flick. Dolph's a bible reading biker who comes rolling into town one day and immediately starts trouble with the redneck drug dealer who runs the town. He has numerous run ins with the same band of goons and slaps them silly each and every time. In fact it becomes unintentionally comical how often this happens, and the fact that they still try to start up fights with him. It makes the villains look pretty silly. Dolph teams up with the Native American population of the town, who the drug dealer(named Reno) is trying to force into building a casino that he can take advantage of. After one too many knuckel sandwiches from Dolph, Reno sends for help in the form of a badazz biker gang who Dolph also makes look like putzes. Naturally it all leads to an explosive showdown. The film seemed like a modernized western, and I believe that was the intention. Maybe it tried too hard to be like a western. The reason I say that is coz most westerns leave a bit of mystery to their gunslinging hero, and this film leaves ALOT of mystery to just about everything. Practically nothing is explained in this movie. We can assume Dolph is really after the leader of the evil biker gang, not Reno. It's mentioned that he was once shot and left for dead by this man. The reasons why are never explained, his association with the gang is never explained. In one scene Dolph retrives a shotgun from a man who says, "this is the gun they shot you with", and when Dolph leaves, the man starts crying. We never see him again. Dolph sleeps with a woman who tells him that he reminds her of her husband who was killed by a biker gang. The woman's daughter looks to Dolph as a father figure.Read more ›

"Missionary Man" reminds me of a mix between Seagal's "On Dangerous Ground" and Stallone's "Cobra". Dolph did an excellent job once again. I have all of the Dolph directed films ("The Defender", "The Russian Specialist", "Missionary Man", "Command Performance", and "Icarus").

The action in Missionary Man is strategically placed. The best part is at the end when Ryder (Dolph) fights the motor cycle gang. The part when he hangs the bad guy from the noose was a flash back to the 1989 Punisher film starring Dolph! I'm going to watch Lundgren's Punisher film again because it is the BEST one! The rest of the action in M.M. is decent.

The main villain John Reno controls the local town and he is trying to force the Native Americans to open up a casino (that he will control). Reno is currupt and his henchmen routinely threaten and kill people. Dolph rides through the town and notices a funeral procession. He speaks at the funeral and later Reno's goons visit the Native American family that Ryder made friends with. He notices that something is wrong in the town and he decides to stay around for a while. Action ensues and Ryder repeatedly beats up Reno's various goons. Reno calls the motor cycle gang to take care of Ryder. Ryder elimates the gang members one-by-one by K.O. or Kill. Ryder gets revenge at the end (won't spoil it, but it is a cool twist at the end).

Dolph is back! He has had some recent hits such as: Universal Soldier Regeneration, Command Performance, and Icarus. Dolph is going to kick a.s.s. in The Expendables.

"Missionary Man" has Dolph playing a spiritual character named Ryder. He is mysterious. Ryder - obviously because he rides a cool motorcycle. Ryder reads the bible, rides his motorcycle, drinks tequila, and kicks @ss!!!
