"The late '80s were a magical time for action-flick aficionados....The guns are huge and the body count is staggering." -- Grade: B

Description by OLDIES.com:

International action star Dolph Lundgren (Rocky IV, The Expendables) is Lt. Nikolai Rachenko, a Soviet Special Forces "killing machine" assigned to infiltrate an African rebel uprising and assassinate their anti-Communist leader. Taken into custody and tortured after the mission fails, he stages a harrowing prison escape. Befriended by an African bushman while on the run, Nikolai discovers he was fighting on the wrong side of this violent conflict all along. Nikolai finds the rebel army once more but, this time, he's on their side and wages bloody war against his former comrades! This action-packed controversial cult classic is now available from Synapse Films in a brand-new 2K high-definition transfer of the uncensored version, containing footage never before seen in the U.S. Featuring amazing performances from Dolph Lundgren, M. Emmet Walsh (Blood Simple) and the late Brion James (Blade Runner), RED SCORPION contains bloody special effects from the legendary Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead, Friday the 13th). Loaded with interviews and other amazing special features, this disc will blow you away!

Product Description:

RED SCORPION is a Cold War thriller about a Soviet-trained assassin assigned to infiltrate an African uprising and kill its rebel leader. When a barroom brawl lands him in jail and into the confidences of another rebel leader, the men stage a prison breakout that results in a voyage across the harsh African desert and into the heart of the rebel camp. But when the planned assassination attempt fails, the Soviet agent suddenly finds himself betrayed by the very men who hired him. After another sojourn in the wilderness, he is unexpectedly drawn to the rebels' cause and leads an attack against his former comrades that is no-holds-barred warfare.

Plot Synopsis:

A Russian soldier is ordered to kill the insurgent chieftain of an African country. Upon his arrival, however, the Soviet learns from one of the locals that they are being ruled and controlled Communist Russians! Switching sides, the officer guides the revolutionaries in a bloody battle against their oppressors.
