Product Description

If you thought he was hardcore in THE EXPENDABLES, he's now totally unstoppable as the KILLING MACHINE: Action icon Dolph Lundgren (ROCKY IV, UNIVERSAL SOLDIER) stars as Edward Genn, a divorced Vancouver father and investment broker who also happens to be the infamous KGB-trained assassin known as Icarus . But when his two worlds collide in a storm of bullets, bloodshed and betrayal by the Russian Mob, Icarus reloads for the most personal and punishing contract of his entire career. When revenge is not enough, how far will a one-man death squad go to get even? Stefanie Von Pfetten, Samantha Ferris (SUPERNATURAL) and Bo Svenson (INGLORIOUS BASTARDS, WALKING TALL) co-star in this bone-snapping, skull-blasting, badass throwback to extreme '80s action movies, directed by Lundgren himself!

Amazon.com

Fresh from his return to the big screen with The Expendables, '80s action star Dolph Lundgren adds another title to his regular stint as the leading man and director of several direct-to-video shoot-'em-ups, including this watchable revenge thriller. Lundgren is Edward Genn, a former KGB agent turned global hit man who masks his activities by posing as a real estate broker; his two lives collide when his past is uncovered during a mission in Hong Kong, forcing him to defend his ex-wife and daughter against a horde of faceless international gunsels. Fans of Lundgren's early efforts like Universal Soldier and I Come in Peace should be pleased by The Killing Machine, which keeps dialogue and plot to a minimum in favor of plentiful gunplay, just like in the good old days; Lundgren aids the action set pieces with jittery handheld camerawork, but this aesthetic proves extremely distracting during conversational moments. In short, it's what audiences have come to expect from DTV action pics, with the added bonus of Lundgren's nostalgia-inducing presence. The DVD includes a 25-minute behind-the-scenes, which offers interviews with the cast and crew and a glimpse of its star working behind the camera. --Paul Gaita

Customer Reviews

Lots of action, violence and a good storyline.
M. Abrams
The plot was developed enough to inspire empathy but not so heavy as to take away from the action genre.
Michelle
Maybe guys would like this one, but i didn't like this one one bit.

Despite the new giddy, silly title, this is actually one of Dolph's best recent efforts. The action legend, and co-star of the Expendables, plays Eddie, a hitman for the Russian mafia with a dark secret, yes, a darker secret than being a hitman for the Russian mob. It seems Eddie once was a KGB assassin code name: Icarus, hence the film's better original title, "Icarus", which is the one I saw it under. Now some baddies have targeted him for elimantion and drag his poor unsuspecting ex-wife and young daughter into the violence. Double crosses, hidden agendas and lots and lots of violence insure.

Dolph directed this one, his fourth offical directing job, and it delivers what you would expect, gunfights, martial arts, ripped heroes, and dead villians. It's all done very well though, and better than the junk being turned out just a few years ago by the 80s and 90s fallen heroes, with above par production values and solid acting and action. Plus, 70s action star (and Tarantino fave) Bo Svenson (Inglorious Bast*rds), a fellow Sweed and childhood hero of Lundgren's, plays the film's main baddie.

For fans of this kinda stuff, you can't go wrong here, for those of us who just can't see Shia LaBuof, Chris Evans or Ryan Reynolds as the next "action stars", long may Dolph and his a** kicking brotheron reign. Who knows, thanks to the Expendables, this sorta stuff could become big again.

Crammed full of fast action, loud music, mindless violence, explosions, gore, appalling dialog, flimsy plot and sex at inappropriate moments, Dolph Lundgren films don't really come much better than this. Or even much different from this...

If you're a Lundgren fan, you'll know what to expect and this will not disappoint. Sure, it's clichéd, hackneyed and has all been done before but that doesn't stop this from being great fun for those who like this kind of thing. Just settle down, pass the popcorn, ignore the dialog and enjoy!

This is an independantly released Action film. Dolph Lundgren Is known for many of his films being independant however this one is recent and doesnt dissapoint. I have to say this is probably one of his best independant films made. I recommened this to any fan of the Action genre or Dolph Lundgren. Lots of action, violence and a good storyline.

Format: DVD
According to the DVD package, the official title of this new direct-to-disc action flick is DOLPH LUNDGREN IS THE KILLING MACHINE (a/k/a ICARUS, 2010). Certainly, the super-sized Swede is some kind of machine - not only is this his 37th feature film (38th, if you count his non-speaking appearance in the James Bond flick A VIEW TO A KILL) but his fifth as director and star.

In THE KILLING MACHINE, Dolph (THE EXPENDABLES, COMMAND PERFORMANCE) portrays a former KGB agent-turned-hitman for the Russian mob known as "Icarus." Returning to his Vancouver home after a bloody assignment in Hong Kong, he unexpectedly finds himself the target of a horde of killers working for an unknown employer. Desperate to protect his young daughter and ex-wife from the onslaught of assassins, he must use his every contact, every weapon, every lethal skill at his disposal to keep his family alive and determine the identity of his mysterious adversary.

Once again, Lundgren proves that he didn't waste his time sitting around movie sets for the last couple of decades. Clearly, he was paying attention to how those movies were made. As a director, he shows a perhaps not-unexpected faculty for staging clear, coherent, and brutal action scenes, but Lundgren also proves adept at handling his cast - managing even to get a decent performance out of Bo Svenson (WALKING TALL PART 2, THE INGLORIOUS BASTARDS). The film's pacing is brisk; even when there isn't blood spraying, guns blazing or bones breaking, the film never bogs down. In other words, he has learned how to make a really good low-budget action flick... and I've got to wonder what he could do with real resources and money.

Anchor Bay brings THE KILLING MACHINE to DVD on Tuesday, October 19th with an excellent 2.

Sir,

You did an excellent job acting and directing.

Please do not let the few negative reviews discourage you from making sequels.

Great job.

Thank you!

In The Killing Machine (2010), Dolph Lundgren plays a former KGB operative turned undercover assassin, who must fight to keep his family from danger. Lundgren also directs this very solid action flick, which has good production values, a solid supporting cast, and even a decent looking opening credit sequence.

Edward Genn (Lundgren) a former KGB agent, uses his job as a businessman in Vancouver as a cover, for being a killer for hire. Genn returns home after completing a messy hit in Hong Kong, and after meeting a Mr. Graham (David Lewis), and experiencing problems with getting paid, begins to suspect that things are not quite right.

Genn gets an assignment for another hit in Miami, but it occurs at a time when he has custody of his daughter Taylor (Katelyn Mager), and his ex-wife Joey (Stefanie von Pfetten) will be out of town. Genn has to take the job, and leaves his daughter with his girlfriend April (Lindsay Maxwell). Very quickly, Genn discovers that there is a contract not only on his life, but also his family. Only by quick action, deadly force, and a little help from his old friend Kerr (Samantha Ferris) does he manage to save Joey and Taylor.

Eventually it is revealed that an old Russian comrade named Vadim Varselov (Bo Swenson) whose life was once saved by Edward Genn when he known by the codename Icarus, is the one behind the plot to kill him. Pressured by Graham, this leads to a reunion between old friends, that ends with a stylish shootout at Varselov's California mansion. Bo Swenson brings some veteran credibility to a film with many unfamiliar faces.

While playing a Russian agent or hitman is very familiar territory for Lundgren, this story has some twists and a few new elements that hold your interest, despite several rough spots.
