Command Performance

Synopsis: A Moscow charity concert turns bloody when armed extortionists take the head liner American pop-star Venus and the Russian President with his family hostage. Help is on the way when the drummer of a heavy metal warm-up band, an ex-bad ass biker played by Lundgren, and a young Russian F.S.B. agent team up to fight back. But our two heroes are seriously outnumbered and things aren't as simple as they appear when old ghosts from the Soviet Union appear to haunt the present in this fast paced action piece.
Director(s): Dolph Lundgren

Another one,

this is incredible.

Miss Venus, did you

get the message?

No, what?

They found your last

piece of luggage, the

Louis Vuitton.

Thank you, honey

you're a life saver.

Okay, great.

Who are they?


Local band.

And since Pilgrim are moving

to L.A. to record

their new album,

ta da. Your

new opening act.

Very old school.

About to

break wide.

They just signed

with your label.

Who's the drummer?

I don't know. I,

I think it was Joe.

Joe, something.

Oh, Joe.

So you guys going to

L.A., huh, to record?

What are you gonna

be, uh, freakin'

movie stars now?

[male voice speaks

in Russian)

Oh, Pamela!

Come on, Daddy.

They'll wait for you.

Well. I'm not

waiting for you.

Get ready.

Put me down for a 5:30

sound check. Thank you.

Enzo. I don't need

a sound check.

We lip synch half

the songs, remember?

I could be sitting

on my ass in my

hotel suite

with a bottle of

Cristal right now.

And a fistful of Vicodin

getting ready to screw

the bellboy.

Instead, uh,

uh, I'm...

getting screwed

by your f***ed

up schedule.

Angie, shut up.

Don't ever tell

me to shut up.

And don't

call me Angie.

It's Venus.

Venus signs

your checks.

No, no, baby.

I sign my checks.

I'm your

manager. Remember?

That can change.

Dear brother.

Tonight's concert is

no ordinary pop concert.

This is a Command Performance

requested by Russian president

Dimitri Petrov.

Performing tonight are hard

rock veterans Pilgrim

and the singer Irson.

But, controversial

American pop icon Venus

is on top of President

Petrov's list tonight.

We have it on good authority

that his daughters are

big Venus fans.

Irson. Irson, right

here. Right here.

We're here with singer Irson

and the No Poverty Rocks

Charity Concert in Moscow.

Yes? Yes, Mother.

Okay, well, I'm trying to

get inside right now.

Five thousand lucky

audience members

were selected

by lottery.

Broadcast worldwide,

this concert will serve

the public face

of Russia's new No

Poverty Rocks Campaign.

The event is designed to

publicize Petrov's new

war on hunger

in Third World countries,

something the

Russian president

is determined

to accomplish.

This is Ali Connor,

for Russia Now.

Blue 7, we have

them in sight.

All clear.

Welcome, Mr. President.

It's great to

see you again.

Jim. You remember

my girls? Anna

and Yana.

This is Mr. Bradley.

The American ambassador

to Moscow.

My God, Alex, your

eldest is the split

image of her.

I know.

Isn't she beautiful?

I, I didn't mean to

bring it up. I'm, I'm

I'm sorry, all right?

It's been a long

time since the

book of love.

I can't count the years

of my life without love.

That's beautiful.

Is, was that, uh,

was that Pushkin?

Some American.


Let's go meet

some rock stars.

We're inside the

Moscow Centennial Arena,

with the No Poverty

Rocks Charity Concert.

President Petrov and his

family have just arrived,

and are on their way

to take their seats.

Don't worry. I'll do

every one of your favorites.

Thank you!

Pleasure to meet you.

Hi. It's

a pleasure.

Good luck tonight.

Thank you, sir.

Believe me, I am

great fans of the

two of you.


God, they love me

here in Russia.

You're the drummer for

my new warm up

act, right?


What's your

name again?

It's Joe.

Hey, you want

to party later?

Look, with all due

respect, um, you got

a hell of a voice.

Why waste it with

this techno dance crap?

Because I get

a private jet,

twenty dancers,

and a 50 million

dollar record contract.

It pays the rent.

Are you sure you

wanna open up

this tour for me?
