In 'Hunt to Kill' (2010) Jim Rhodes (Austin), a border patrol agent, and his 17-year-old daughter, Kim (Marie Avgeropoulos), are kidnapped by a gang of ruthless criminals hellbent on retrieving their share of a recent heist from a rival gang.

'Men of War' (1994) follows tough mercenary Nick Riley (Lundgren), who is persuaded to quell a revolt on a beautiful tropical island so that a couple of businessman can exploit its mineral deposits.

'Pentathlon' (1994) tells the story of a muscular East German athlete who defects during the 1988 Seoul Olympics.
