“The Expendables” co-stars Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture team up in “Ambushed”, though they’re not playing their characters from “The Expendables”. It would be cool if they did, though, right? I don’t know why Stallone doesn’t spin-off the characters, kinda like how Marvel does it. It could be The Expendables Cinematic Universe, or ECU. So Jet Li’s character would get his own movie, and would cameo in a Stallone Barney Ross movie, who would cameo in a Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture team-up. You get the idea.
Until that happens, we’ll just have to make do with guys like Couture and Lundgren showing up in the same movies, like director Giorgio Serafini’s cop actioner “Ambushed”. Check out two clips from that team-up below.
AMBUSHED charts the dark, seductive underbelly of Los Angeles, told from the point of view of two of its seedier denizens, mid-level drug pushers Eddie (Gianni Capaldi) and Frank (Daniel Bonjour). They want a chance to hit the big time. Unfortunately, they decide to achieve their goal by ripping off their middleman in a murderous bid for greatness, setting off a dangerous chain of events involving a ruthless crime boss, a dirty cop and the Federal agent chasing them all. Agent Maxwell (Dolph Lundgren) is about to close in on an international cocaine smuggling operation run by criminal mastermind Vincent Camastra (Jones). When Agent Beverly Royce (Carly Pope) goes undercover with the drug dealers, she finds herself in deeper than she can handle. Up against ruthless killers as well as dirty cop Jack Reiley (Randy Couture), Frank and Eddie will soon find that dreams built on corruption sometimes exact a heavy toll…
Starring Dolph Lundgren, Vinnie Jones, Carly Pope, and Randy Couture.
