Retrograde (2004)


Retrograde (2004) -* *

Directed By: Christopher Kulikowski

Starring: Dolph Lundgren and Gary Daniels










Dolph In Space!

So far unreleased in the U.S., (almost with good reason). It's for die-hard Dolph fans (like myself) only.

Retrograde is about John Foster (Lundgren) who has to stop a bunch of bad guys who are trying to take over a boat in the future. Yes, that sounds like a poor plot and it is, but deep down it looks like they were trying. The budget is low and the special effects are cheap, but Dolph and Gary put in decent performances.

The movie's worst sin was to not pit Dolph and Gary Daniels' characters to a fight to the death. That would've been awesome.

To tell you the truth, if you liked Direct Action you won't like Retrograde, unless you are a Dolph superfan.

The director / writer intended to set Dolph and Gary Daniels against each other. However, certain powers decided against it and made alterations to the script, the story and the character.
