They quickly set to work on the script for their first film Born American a. Arctic Heat. This was a feature length action movie about three Americans vacationing in Finland who cross the border into the Soviet Union.
It was originally supposed to star Chuck Norris but he backed out when filming was delayed by funding problems and his son, Mike Norris, landed the lead instead.
A Finnish production, this was at that the time the most expensive film ever to have been made in Finland but it was initially banned in Finland for a very short while as the film encouraged violence and hatred towards Russians.
The international success of the film allowed Harlin to get his foot in the door in Hollywood. Harlin moved to the U.
Harlin cameos in the film as a student while a publicity poster for Prison can be seen in the background of a scene in a movie theatre. After working on the trouble-prone project for a year, he left in claiming not to be satisfied with any of the multiple scripts that had been drafted and stating that he wanted to do something completely different.
Studio executives were so impressed by the dailies on this film that they offered Harlin action sequel Die Hard 2 starring Bruce Willis, which he set to work on immediately.
The two films were edited simultaneously and were released just a week apart after being shipped to the theaters as "wet prints". The former flopped but the latter was another commercial success for the director.
He achieved critical acclaim the following year, , when he produced Rambling Rose, through his own recently formed Midnight Sun Pictures, for director Martha Coolidge which won him the Best Feature award at the Independent Spirit Awards and got his star and then partner Laura Dern a Best Actress Oscar nomination at the Academy Awards.
Harlin initially turned down the offer due to the script's similarities to Die Hard 2 but Kassar kept offering a bigger salary, changing the pay scale of Hollywood directors, until Harlin accepted.
The film's projected cost spiraled and eventually the plug was pulled, but the project went on to evolve into Cliffhanger. The actor became good friends with Harlin.

In , Harlin set to work on a pirate movie called Cutthroat Island with Michael Douglas attached to star. Harlin convinced producer Mario Kassar that, despite being known for light-weight comedy roles, his wife Geena Davis was perfect for the female love interest in this action blockbuster.
That studio, Carolco Pictures, went bankrupt as a result. This was another commercial failure that effectively ended Davis' movie career.
Harlin and Davis were divorced in , after he acknowledged fathering a son in with Tiffany Browne, an assistant on several of his films.
That same year , looking for a summer blockbuster for , Warner Bros. The film, in which Harlin cameos, was mistakenly thought to be a comedy by some and was not the box office hit the studio had wanted.
The following year, , he returned to TV appearing in a couple of episodes of old friend Markus Selin's Finnish series Susi rajalla and directing the pilot episode for Fox Television's T.
At this relative low point in his career, in , it was old friend Sylvester Stallone, who helped Harlin out by bringing him on board as producer and director of race-car movie Driven in which he also cameos, however the final product was a yet another critical and commercial failure.
Harlin's next project was to be a movie adaptation of Ray Bradbury short story A Sound of Thunder but he was fired because he made a creative decision that made Ray Bradbury very unhappy and this film's producers decided to support Ray Bradbury.
Harlin picked up the reins on slasher movie Mindhunters when original director Peter Howitt dropped out and spent a long time editing and re-editing this thriller but the release was delayed by studio conflicts.
He then went on to re-shoot a more traditional horror version of Exorcist: The Beginning when the studio were unhappy with the psychological drama cut from director Paul Schrader.
Due to the delays with Mindhunters both films ended up being released in and both were moderate successes. In , Harlin re-teamed with old friend and collaborator Markus Selin to direct a biopic of Finnish President and General of the Cavalry Gustaf Mannerheim, but the budget projection spiraled and the project was put on hold.
Instead Harlin made yet another foray into low-budget horror with The Covenant, which was another moderate commercial success. In the Mannerheim film project temporarily moved on, and Harlin returned to Finland.
