Despite the new giddy, silly title, this is actually one of Dolph's best recent efforts. The action legend, and co-star of the Expendables, plays Eddie, a hitman for the Russian mafia with a dark secret, yes, a darker secret than being a hitman for the Russian mob. It seems Eddie once was a KGB assassin code name: Icarus, hence the film's better original title, "Icarus", which is the one I saw it under. Now some baddies have targeted him for elimantion and drag his poor unsuspecting ex-wife and young daughter into the violence. Double crosses, hidden agendas and lots and lots of violence insure.
Dolph directed this one, his fourth offical directing job, and it delivers what you would expect, gunfights, martial arts, ripped heroes, and dead villians. It's all done very well though, and better than the junk being turned out just a few years ago by the 80s and 90s fallen heroes, with above par production values and solid acting and action. Plus, 70s action star (and Tarantino fave) Bo Svenson (Inglorious Bast*rds), a fellow Sweed and childhood hero of Lundgren's, plays the film's main baddie.
For fans of this kinda stuff, you can't go wrong here, for those of us who just can't see Shia LaBuof, Chris Evans or Ryan Reynolds as the next "action stars", long may Dolph and his a** kicking brotheron reign. Who knows, thanks to the Expendables, this sorta stuff could become big again.
