Audience Reviews for Blackjack

Try to envision this without laughing: Dolph's only weakness is the color white. The presence of all of light's spectrum. Still not laughing? Now, and this is a spoiler, where do you have the final, climactic fight? A goddamn dairy, that's where. A milk factory. Automatic 3 stars for the balls on the guy who pitched this.

Cool made-for-TV action starring Dolph Lundgren as a mercenary suffering from a debilitating phobia acquired during a firefight who is trying to save a supermodel from the hands of a serial killer. Director John Woo does a fantastic job in the excitement and action sequences.

It has a few nice shootouts, and it stars The Dolph. Worth watching once for fans of Woo or Lundgren. Everyone else can pass.
