“They drowned someone in the river- if you know what I mean.”

Viewer Quotes

  • “She wants to get Dolphed”
  • “That looks fun. I’d like to throw some incendiary grenades in a boat.”

What We Learned

  • Dolph drinks a tequila with no lime and no salt.
  • The ancestors told of a man from the North who would save them- and that man was Dolph Lundgren
  • Dolph is the savior

Final Take

An enjoyable Dolph Lundren written and directed piece which is a retelling of Pale Rider- or maybe Ghost Rider from the comics (avenging spirit who rides a motorcycle). Some good action, cartoonish bad guys who run the town (think Road House), and a lot of killing. Jarfe was a good character, but should have known better to get into the war with Dolph based on his initial interaction with the clownish crime boss, John Reno. Look for it on amazon Prime!
