Who know action star Dolph Lundgren as He-Man, Ivan Drago and The Punisher, but do you know he was also a bodyguard with an intense phobia of the color white? That's the plot of BLACKJACK, an ambitious and action-packed backdoor pilot from director John Woo (FACE/OFF, THE KILLER), in which Lundgren protects a little girl and a supermodel from criminals with a HUGE artillery budget.
It was extremely Dolph Lundgren, and it was extremely John Woo. But was BLACKJACK really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold look back at the history of the two action legends to figure out where BLACKJACK fits in their filmographies, and whether it's any danged good. Like, at all.
