Dolph Lundgren Is The Killing Machine is the story of Edward Genn (Lundgren) — a Soviet-era sleeper agent and trained assassin living in America. Working under the code name “Icarus,” Edward is stealthy and fearless: cloaked within the shadows, the ability to kill with extreme discretion his specialty. But times have changed, the borders of Europe have been redrawn…and Edward is ready to break with his dark past.
With a new identity, Edward is prepared to distance himself from the world of assignations and assassinations; he is ready to re-introduce himself to his wife and daughter. Edward may be determined to forget, but there are others who still remember Icarus, The Killing Machine…and they will do anything to destroy him. Dolph Lundgren Is The Killing Machine is the story of a man defending his future against his sinister past. Ready for a life of peace, Edward has one more battle to fight.
