Does Dolph Lundgren give a Command Performance?


Command Performance (2009)

What's an actor to do when there are no more roles worth taking? Make a movie and give yourself a role that’s worth it. Well, at least that's what Dolph Lundgren attempts with “Command Performance.”

“Command Performance” is about an American with a dark past (yeah, original) who is playing drums in an up-and-coming rock band during a charity event. Easy enough . . . or so we thought. The real story starts with some extortionists crashing the party and taking hostages. Well, except one guard and the drummer (averagely named Joe). These two must kick, punch and shoot as much extortionist-ass as they can to save those who are left.

Dolph Lundgren co-wrote “Command Performance” with Steve Latshaw. Lundgren directed and stars in this entertaining and respectable effort, but he’s not going to win any Academy Awards. Lundgren has learned from his former celluloid rival Sylvester Stallone that when the script calls for someone’s head getting shot off, that is what you shoot. Blood flies often as the extortionists get taken down one by one. There are no twists, no real turns, but the script gets you from point A to point B.

On a side note, no movie should ever have a tagline as cheesy as “Dying is easy. Rock 'n’ Roll is hard.

If there’s nothing else worth renting this movie will take you back to the early ‘90s and late ‘80s where cheap “B” action movies filled your sleepless nights. Remember not to expect much and you’ll at least be entertained. You’ve been warned.
