* ''Film/MenOfWar'' (1994), where he plays Nick Gunnar, a Swedish mercenary that is hired along with a RagtagBunchOfMisfits to coerce the inhabitants of a remote island to give a greedy MegaCorp the rights to exploit their natural resources... only to pull a HeelFaceTurn after finding out that they're after more than natural resources. Cue our Swedish {{Badass}} almost single-handedly decimating an army of [[{{Mooks}} hired goons]] with a friggin' [[Videogame/MetalSlug RAWKET LAWNCHAIR]].

Dolph Lundgren is an actor from Sweden, born in 1957, often viewed as "the poor man's ArnoldSchwarzenegger" (but is no less of a MrFanservice). He has won European and Australian karate championships, as well as represented the United States in the 1996 Summer Olympics in pentathlon. He may be one of the best RealLife examples of HiddenDepths, as despite being famous for playing DumbMuscle characters, [[GeniusBruiser he has a master's degree in chemical engineering.]] He is rumoured to have a genius-level IQ, but he denies it.

True fact: a bunch of [[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/spain/5224797/Thieves-flee-after-breaking-into-Dolph-Lundgrens-Spanish-home.html burglars broke into his house and tied up his wife in 2009]]. Luckily, before they got to anything serious they saw a family photo and realized ''they had just tied up Dolph Lundgren's wife,'' which was in itself enough reason for them to let her go and run away very quickly. Fortunately for them, he wasn't home at the time, or he would have chased them with his He-Man sword.

* ''Film/ShowdownInLittleTokyo'' (1991). In this movie he fights [[Film/MortalKombat Shang Tsung]], makes love to Series/RelicHunter and his [[GagPenis penis size]] is praised by [[Film/TheCrow Eric Draven]]. Truly, a chain of feats that can only be pulled by one and only Dolph Lundgren.
* ''Film/UniversalSoldier'' (1992), where he and Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme play feuding Vietnam vets who after death are re-used in military's experimental [=UniSol=] project, which then goes haywire when the two start remembering who they were in the past.

* ''Film/InTheNameOfTheKing2TwoWorlds'' (2011) is a dip into Creator/UweBoll territory in this DTV sequel to ''Film/InTheNameOfTheKing''. Lundgren stars as Granger, a modern-day badass who is sucked into a fantasy world (largely comprising a styrofoam castle in a Canadian forest) to fight its corrupt king.

Lundgren's first foray in the film industry was a minor role in ''Film/AViewToAKill'' as a KGB mook, Venz, who has two seconds of screentime. He got this role thanks to his then-girlfriend Grace Jones (that's right, this guy dated Grace Jones, which is enough to prove that this guy has the balls of steel). After that, he got his breakthrough role in ''RockyIV'' as the Russian boxer Ivan Drago, which launched his career in action movies.
