Direct Action (2004) -* * *
Directed By: Sidney J. Furie
Starring: Dolph Lundgren and Polly Shannon
Frank Gannon (Lundgren) is about to blow the whistle on a group of dirty cops from the "Direct Action Unit". But first, he has to train his new partner, Billie Ross (Shannon). During a drive to a coffee house, they are ambushed by the cops. Gannon kills them all. When some other members hear about this, they also try to kill them.
The plot is simple, but exciting. All the action scenes are solid. You don't usually get to see Lundgren use his hand-to-hand combat skills, when he does, it's awesome. He did all of his own stunts.
Like Van Damme, Lundgren is branching out as an actor. He does a great job. Polly Shannon is a good foil for him. They have a nice chemistry.
Grab some popcorn, crank up the volume and you'll have a fun time.
