Have at ya, with a giant Swede! That's right, Synapse Films are bringing Red Scorpion to Blu-ray in June. On June 12th, which I believe is Father's Day, the movie, which was originally released back in 1989, will see a shiny Blu-ray/DVD combo release with plenty of extras.

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.
