Episode 22: The Peacekeeper


On this episode, my buddy Chris Prentice is back to discuss Dolph Lundgren’s next film, 1997’s The Peacekeeper.  In this direct-to-video action thriller, Lundgren plays Major Frank Cross, a rebellious Air Force pilot assigned to protect the president’s “football” – a briefcase containing access to nuclear strikes!  Yet when a group of terrorists steal the football, it’s up to Lundgren to get it back!  The Peacekeeper was Lundgren’s first film with fledging production house, Nu Image, a partnership that is still continuing to this day.  Why is Montel Williams in this movie?  Just how suave and renegade is Lundgren’s Frank Cross character?  How do the special effects hold up today, especially the Mount Rushmore sequence?  What similarities do The Peacekeeper and George Clooney’s The Peacemaker have in common?  And what is with Lundgren chewing gum in his movies?  Join us as Chris and I take a look back at The Peacekeeper!

Major thanks to Chris Prentice for coming back!  Please feel free to rate and review the show on iTunes, Stitcher, or wherever else you go to subscribe!
