Action superstar Dolph Lundgren (Missionary Man) propels this hard-hitting adventure as a guide hired to lead a band of treasure hunters to locate a priceless Buddhist artifact. Xander Ronson (Lundgren), an ex-Special Forces officer, agrees to lead an obsessed fortune hunter and his men on a dangerous quest for a legendary relic, the Tangka Tapestry. But great dangers await from a gang of ruthless Russian mercenaries bent on stealing the fabled treasure and also from a deadly curse said to protect the incredibly valuable relic from tomb raiders.

Dolph Lundgren stars as Xander Ronson, an ex-soldier now living on the fringe in China while waiting for that one big job to come along that will change his life forever. When an American in search of a legendary Buddhist artifact comes knocking on his door, Ronson thinks his destiny is finally at hand. But as Ronson leads the party of treasure-hunters deeper into the moutainous badlands in search of their prize, he discovers they are stalked not only by Russian soldiers, but perhaps by an ancient curse as well.

A bit more low-key than many of Lundgren's action vehicles, DIAMOND DOGS is a rather more character-driven story than many of his fans may be accustomed to. The pace is relatively slow and there's a bit more of an emphasis on drama than shoot-em-up pyrotechnics--though there is still plenty of that too, especially as the climax draws closer and closer to its inevitable conclusion. Though not lavishly budgeted, DIAMOND DOGS actually benefits in some ways from the spartan FX, as this contributes a gritty, desperate realism that works well for this particular story. Acting is generally good, with Lundgren playing a somewhat less invincible warrior than he usually does, with more than adequate help from his supporting cast. The ending is unconventional but rings true within the context of the story. Though perhaps not one of Lundgren's very best pictures, DIAMOND DOGS is a different and interesting movie that action/adventure fans should find worthy of at least a rental.

Dolph Lundgren does his thing again. Consistently Great "B" action movies. He never lets you down in quality or delivery. This time in Inner Mongolia. Have no idea about the title?!? Has nothing to do with the movie. But it is a great "B" action movie.

Just watched this off Netflix streaming and was surprised by how entertaining the film was. Shot in Inner Mongolia (a province in China), the story is about an ex-Green Beret named Ronson who tries to make a petty living while running up a sizeable debt and then gets hired by an "English" guy with an American accent and a Chinese stepdaughter who wants to seduce the Ronson from the moment they met. The group sets out to find some Mongolian treasure called Tongka and along the way has to get in serious firefights and fistfights with some Russians and their Chinese mercenaries. There is a lot of tough action sequences in the film which makes the fighting look real. A lot of shoot-'em-ups, too, which makes the film fun to watch. As long as you don't take the script seriously and don't expect a big-budget production like the laughable Indiana Jones series, you'll be able to enjoy this film.

It is good to see Dolph change his appearance for this movie! As an actor, it is important to be versatile and open to changes in attitude and looks. Dolph did his job very well in Diamond Dogs. Some of the reviewers criticized his (Dolph's) haircut and "skinny" appearance. I respond to this negative feedback by pointing out the fact that he did his job by changing his looks. He is an actor, not a model. An actor is suppose to look different in each movie. Again, he is doing his job.

In addition, Dolph is in his fifties now and still looks great after all of these years! I believe Steven Seagal could learn something from Dolph about not looking exactly the same in every movie.
Fans of Dolph should support him refining his acting skills and improving his stage presence. He shows human weakness and flaws which actually enhance his acting ability. His films would become boring if he always looks the same and no one can ever beat him up in a fight or out smart him. Steven Seagal could use some more "challenging" oponents to make his movies more believable.
Diamond Dogs is perhaps Dolph's most unique role beside his character as a slave in "The Final Inquiry". Change is good because it prevents his movies from all being to much alike.
Great acting, good character development, and a unique story that is unlike any of his other films earns this film a five star rating.
Don't miss Dolph in a very unique and well developed role!
