  Action icon Dolph Lundgren (Rocky 4, Masters of the Universe) had much spot and malice to go through. As with his colleague Jean-Claude Van Damme (Karate Tiger), went there with his career after a few golden years, and cult movies like The Punisher and Universal Soldier the end of the 1990 downhill and she was transferred from cinemas in the video store shelves. There it sat Lundgren with his partner and Steven Seagal (Under Siege one) at home. A loyal fanbase The council also continued to ensure that he could regularly make films.
