Rock'n'roll drummer Joe (Dolph Lundgren, Universal Soldier, Rocky IV) and his band are about to make it big as the opening act for America's hottest pop star (Melissa Smith) in Moscow. Fame and glory quickly turn into chao... more »s as armed terrorists storm the arena, capturing the pop star and the guests of honor - Russian President Alexander Petrov and his two teenage daughters. With the death toll rising and the hostages' lives on the line, it is up to one man to come to their rescue and save the day. Nonstop action, hand-to-hand combat and a rock'n'roll edge make COMMAND PERFORMANCE a jam-packed hit.« less

"Good, old school action. Some righteously cheesy one liners, delivered like only Dolph can, a bit of weed and a bunch of dead Communists.
What else do you need to know?"
One of Dolph's Best!

"I would say this is easily on of Dolph's best movies. Its a decent although, predicable die hard clone, but for lovers of action movies, it gets the job done. Once the carnage starts up, it never really stops, and true, Dolph only dispatches 11 bad guys, most are quality and entertaining. If you hate 80's action, and tough guys, then find another movie. I though the film had a nice mix of humor and action. To all the Dolph naysayers out their, you just wish that you could go shirtless for a whole movie when your his age. The man has still got it."
Surprisingly not bad

"It has been a while, and I mean a while, since I've checked out anything that has Dolph Lundgren as the main star. However, there was something about Command Performance that made me want to see it, so I gave it a chance, and it turns out that it actually isn't half bad, and probably one of the best things that Dolph has ever starred in. Dolph (who also directs) stars as Joe, an aging drummer in a band that is opening for a huge American pop princess (Melissa Smith) in Moscow, when out of nowhere terrorists make their presence felt. Before you know it, things basically go into Die Hard mode, but what stops Command Performance from turning into a yawn-fest are some well assembled action sequences and even some surprisingly decent acting. Lundgren is enjoyable as he can be, and former Pussycat Doll contender Melissa Smith is a sight to behold. All in all, you'll certainly see better action flicks than Command Performance, and you'll certainly see worse ones too."

"Dolph can definitely act and direct.This is even better than Missionary Man.I like the idea that an old burn-out rocker can "get it together",take charge,kick butt and get the girl.Melissa Smith was SMOKING HOT!My Italian blood pressure was off the charts. My testosterone level was thru the roof for days!I liked the way she looked at him in the beginning-with admiration and sensual interest.It is never too late for old warriors(like me) to get the girl.My copy did not have any extras,and I would have liked to see how the film was produced,with interviews,etc.The music thruout the film was great and made the movie.I hummed Melissa's opening tune "Lost in Love"for days!The one liners Dolph had were great!Remember- "Watch the hair ,dude!"when he fought the first man in the restroom? Get this film ,you will love it and be surprised how far Dolph has come in the movie industry."
Dolph drums up some decent action

"Dolph has directed himself in a pretty good B-grade action movie. Would I buy it for more than the cost of renting it? No. Sure, it's Die-Hard-in-a-concert-arena, but the Russian locations and the aversion Dolph's character has to guns (though ridiculous and short-lived) add some novel touches. Oh, and apparently Dolph knows how to play the drums. The funniest part is Michelle Smith's smokin' hot young singer character constantly making eyes at the aging Dolph Lundgren. But, hey, he's the director!"
