Trivia

The now-renowned directors Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avary got their first Hollywood jobs in 1986 as production assistants on this workout video. The director John Langley knew them from the video store where Tarantino was working. Not until Quentin Tarantino had arrived on location, however, did the future director receive his assignment: cleaning dog feces from the front lawn of the house in which the video was being shot.

This video is "The Master of the Universe!"
15 April 2004 | by Col_John_MatrixSee all my reviews

This workout video is truly amazing! I used to be a skinny ordinary guy, but following the guidance given by Mr. Lundgren I reached all the goals I set myself and found balance in my life.

Now I am a ultra-toned stacked beefcake like Dolph Lundgren himself! Even though this is 2004, Dolph Lundgren helped me obtain "The body of the 90's" and I couldn't be happier! This video turned my life around, and it only costs £3 from all good charity shops! I implore you to use this video to reach your "MAXIMUM POTENTIAL", just like me!!!!
