From John Woo, the master
of action who brought the audiences the internationally successful
feature film FACE/OFF, comes a new thrill-a-minute film: BLACKJACK.
Dolph Lundgren stars as
Jack Devlin, a high-living security expert, trying to retire
from a life of dangerous assignments. But when Jack's close friend
catches a bullet while protecting breath-taking supermodel Cinder
James, Jack knows he has to leave the comfort of his luxurious
Manhattan penthouse to take over the high-risk assignment.
Cinder has just landed
a multi-million dollar contract that will see her go down the
city's hottest runways. But danger lurks around every corner
as her ex-husband, a relentless stalker, pinpoint marksman and
bona fide psycho, has his mind set on murder.
Jack's life is complicated
further when a newly-orphaned eight-year-old girl, Casey, arrives
on his doorstep. Years earlier, Jack saved Casey's life from
Russian mobsters as they tried to take her hostage while muscling
in on her father's casino. Jack is now Casey's godfather, and
he finds his time torn between the mundane but heart warming
world of raising, and a deadly world of hide and seek where murder
lies behind every door and survival is against the odds.
John Woo brings his magic
touch to BLACKJACK and presents a side of internationally acclaimed
actor Dolph Lundgren that's never been seen before. Woo sets
high stakes for action and excitement, and exceeds them every
time. It's a film that starts off fast, kicks into overdrive
and has a climax that will blow you out of your seat.
