The Postman (1997)

For his second directed feature The Postman (1997), Kevin Costner used footage featuring Dolph Lundgren in Universal Soldier. In this movie set in 2013, Costner's character is a survivor in a wasteland future, taken against his will in military camp as a slave-soldier where they're projected movies like The Sound Of Music, starring Julie Andrews, or...Dolph Lundgren's Universal Soldier! The "audience" gets mad and throw stones when they see explosions and Dolph blowing up with his machine gun. And Costner says "These were supposed to be the best years of my life."

The problem is that we can't figure out if Costner used that footage by friendship or compasion for Dolph, who doesn't really make it in Hollywood today, or if he doesn't like Lundgren. Unfortunately this used footage shows how Dolph Lundgren films are averagely perceived because people don't know them: as dumb violent action movies, which they're not.
