“The Expendables” co-stars Dolph Lundgren and Steve Austin re-team for “The Package”, a slam-bang actioner from Jesse Johnson, who directed a little-known but I think underrated action flick called “Pit Fighter” from 2005. Here’s an EXCLUSIVE clip from “The Package”, featuring Dolph Lundgren doing what Dolph Lundgren does best — look mean and plotting your death.
DTHE PACKAGE features Austin as Tommy Wick, a nightclub bouncer and enforcer for Seattle crime boss Big Doug (Eric Keenleyside, Dreamcatcher, Firewall). When Big Doug instructs Tommy to hand-deliver a secret package to the mysterious international crime lord “The German,” (Lundgren), he does so with the hopes that Big Doug will forgive the debt Tommy’s brother Eddie (Lochlyn Munroe, White Chicks, Freddy vs. Jason) owes.
Word of the clandestine delivery spreads and soon “the package” – and those who carry it – becomes the target of rival gang leader Anthony (Michael Daingerfield, The Messengers). Anthony will stop at nothing to ensure its capture. Facing incredible odds, Tommy races against the ticking clock – and a small army of hit men, mercenaries, assassins and sadists — to complete delivery. But does The German have other ideas about what to do with the package?
“The Package”, starring Dolph Ludngren and Steve Austin, punches, kicks, and shoots its way onto DVD and Blu-ray Combo Pack courtesy of Anchor Bay Films this February 19, 2013.
We’ll be running a Blu-ray giveaway for this title next month, so keep an eye out for that.
