Win Dolph Lundgren's Pentathlon and Randy Couture's Hijacked
Preview by Jack Foley
TWO great thrillers are released on Blu-ray and DVD on Monday, July 30, featuring Hollywood hardmen Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture.
The former stars in Pentathlon, while the latter leads the all-action Hijacked.
In Pentathlon, directed by Bruce Malmuth (of Hard To Kill, Nighthawks fame), Lundgren plays East German pentathlete Eric Brogar, who takes the opportunity to escape his past and the demands of his tyrannical coach, Heinrich Mueller (Starsky & Hutch‘s David Soul) and flees to the freedom of the West with the help of a beautiful American athlete.
Several years later, Mueller has given up coaching and turned his dubious talents to neo-Nazi terrorism and a series of attacks on German government officials. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, Brogar has slipped into an alcoholic depression and ekes out a meagre living working at a local diner.
Still angered by Brogar’s betrayal and driven by a need for revenge, the psychotic Mueller first targets Brogar’s father before flying to LA to finish off his former star athlete once and for all.
In an attempt to get his life back on track, Brogar has begun training once more, this time at the woodland retreat of his former girlfriend.
But the arrival of Mueller, who has since teamed up with Brogar’s arch rival Jurgen Reinhardt and a group of neo-Nazi sympathizers in the US, means Brogar will soon have to turn his skills to something more than winning medals.
Hijacked, meanwhile, follows tough US government agent Paul Ross (Couture), a man at the forefront of an international operation to smash a global terrorist organisation and crime syndicate known only as The Tribe, a group notorious for obtaining its funds from the drug trade and illegal arms dealing.
When a tip-off as to the whereabouts of the Tribe’s leader turns out to be a set-up that lands Ross in the middle of a bloody firefight in which he loses several of his close colleagues, he becomes ever more determined to bring down those responsible.
The aftermath of the doomed mission brings Ross a vital piece of information suggesting that the Tribe’s next target will be one of the world’s richest industrialists, Bruce Lieb.
When the new intel proves to be reliable, Ross soon finds himself hitching a ride from Paris on Lieb’s luxury jumbo jet in the company of a group of ruthless hijackers, some very rich hostages and, unexpectedly, Ross’s ex-fiancee, Olivia, who has just started working as Lieb’s PR assistant.
Now, for Ross, the potential $2.73 billion ransom money at stake has become a secondary issue. When the seatbelt signs go off, his primary concerns are revenge and saving the love of his life by whatever means necessary.
Both films are available to buy on July 30, 2012.
