For most countries, truce means peace, but for Angola, truce means terror!

This film was a real snooze-fest interrupted by brief flashes of action. In fact, most of the action took place at the beginning and the end. You could skip the whole middle.

Dolph Lundgren sure didn't show the action hero we saw in The Punisher or Universal Soldier as a demolitions expert in taking apart land mines.

Claire Stansfield was equally flat as the woman who recruited him to help rid Angola of a new type of mine.

Someone even compared Lungren to Commando Arnold. What a joke!

I imagine that there is a market for movies like this in foreign countries.

Never ever attempt to give a Dolph Lundgren character some depth.

As far as these sort of genre movies, this really isn't a bad one. I sure for one enjoyed watching it. Of course its all lame and cheap but hey I am a guy! I don't mind seeing things get blown up and I definitely have seen worse and less entertaining movies of this sort.

It basically is a very ridicules movie. The story...well that didn't even made sense did it? It's a quite weak and just plain silly story but at least it provides the movie with plenty of action to enjoy. The action is simply the saving grace of this movie. The story is just never really interesting and far from anything new and they also made the mistake with it to try and give the Dolph Lundgren character some depth. I could had worked, if there had been a better actor involved.

But this is a Dolph Lundgren-flick with action in it, so you just know in advance you shouldn't pay any attention to the story. The movie serves its purpose to bring some entertaining action to the screen, though it all remains quite ridicules all. It's insane to see Dolph Lundgren shooting without ever taking cover, while bullets fly around him and stuff starts to blow up and kills all of his enemies with the first shot he fires.

A watchable enough genre piece that serves its purpose well, without ever becoming a real great or original one.

Another B Action Flick From Dolph

Another cheesy B action vehicle from Dolph Lundgren during his prime in the 90s. Sweepers doesn't have a ton going for it, but as a schlocky bad action movie, it's perfect.

The premise is strange, and it works for an action movie. A minesweeper learns of dangerous new mines being planted, and tries to find the distributor. Dolph goes full Indiana Jones here, wearing the same kind of clothes, even the hat, and he also wears a leather jacket in one scene.

Dolph is the best actor here, elevating the proceedings with a certain level of class and charm that the movie really doesn't deserve. Bruce Payne was ok, but this is definitely not one of his best roles. Everyone else was meh.

Keoni Waxman, a director most notable for his B and C-list action films, is responsible for 9 Steven Seagal DTV movies, and 2 Steve Austin ones. It's unfortunate, as he's a good action director, and he stages some nice set pieces.

The action is obviously the reason to watch. The opening battle scene was cool, if slightly laughable, the house shootout, bar fight, jeep/helicopter chase, house fight/shootout, mineshaft fight and shootout, and final battle aboard the train were all good. The movie's strength is in the last 15 minutes, and the train sequence was cool. The movie looks to have a pretty high budget, with lots of practical effects and tons of explosions. It's thoroughly satisfying.

It's another excellent piece of B entertainment overall, and it's one of Dolph's more underrated films for sure. I recommend it to action and Dolph fans. It's a bad film, but enjoyably bad.
