DOLPH LUNDGREN. COMMUNISTS. STEROIDS. OLYMPICS.
There’s really nothing else I feel like I need to say about this film, except that it was a wonderful piece of Olympic-themed, paranoid propaganda from the mid-’90s, seemingly hellbent on rubbing it in the face of the fallen communist regimes of Europe. After you watch all the goodwill being thrown around in the opening ceremony, throw on this tale about a defected athlete trying to evade his coach to balance yourself out. [Netflix]
