On this month's episode we're chatting the 2015 martial arts thriller, Skin Trade! In this highly ambitious direct-to-video film, Dolph Lundgren teams up with Tony Jaa as two detectives who join forces to take down a Serbian mobster and destroy his worldwide human trafficking network! Yet for Dolph, this mission is more than serving justice... it's personal! Also along for the ride in this film is a star-studded cast of many who are more than familiar with the action genre, including Michael Jai White, Ron Perlman, Peter Weller, and Cary Tagawa! Returning to the show to help me discuss this one is Ben Johnson, host of the Kung Fu Movie Guide! What is it about this film that makes it look much more cinematic than so many of Dolph's other films post-Expendables? Just how generous is Dolph to his cast in letting everyone have their moment to shine in the film? How amazing is the fight between Dolph and Tony Jaa? And how does the film do at tackling the very weighty subject matter of human trafficking? Join us as Ben and I answer these questions and many more as we chat Skin Trade!
