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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
If you like 80s style action movies youll love this!!!
RAY GAYO 007
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!

Not a bad movie. The third (final) act is the best in my opinion but that's not to say that it doesn't entertain. If you're a fan of Dolph then you'll like this movie.Published 6 months ago by M.
