On this month’s episode, we’re taking a look at the underrated and somewhat unseen film, Silent Trigger! Lundgren caps off his “experimental” era in this arthouse action film that’s essentially a four-man stage production! In this film, Lundgren plays a sniper who discovers that he and his accomplice (Gina Bellman) are the next targets by the very organization they work for! Coming back to discuss this movie are my buddies (and show regulars) Chris Prentice and Jeremie Damoiseau. How does Silent Trigger make use of its ambiguous setting? Is the film too mysterious for its own good, or is that part of its charm? Could the character of O’Hara (Christopher Heyerdahl) be one of the most unlikable characters in Lundgren’s filmography? And what is with the infamous spider scene? Join us as we take aim at Silent Trigger!
Major thanks to Chris Prentice and Jeremie Damoiseau for joining me! Be on the lookout for Jeremie’s book on the making of Lundgren’s The Punisher, to be released soon in the US. Please feel free to rate and review the show on iTunes, Stitcher, or wherever else you subscribe!
