RAPE_REVENGE-Vietnam

I must have seen this movie like 100 times.. I thought, I was gonna be the only one to review..BUT for I see some cool IMDBer's have the same opinion as me.

What a treat! What can I say that hasn't been said: Great plot-holed B movie. A review mention, he thinks he had a bad tape, that repeat the same scene TWICE..well, mine DID TOO..

From the rapes at the beginning...to the them, being super cool as nothing happened after. Really, there's nothing I can add. Just wanted to say, that this is one kick ass B movie.

P.S I came here, to see if they had an TRIVIA for American Commando's: They don't. I don't understand. They have 123880 threads of TRIVIA for AVATAR and none for THIS!!mmhmhmh..

Now, I'm off to check out "Tougher Than leather" TRIVIA..hoping that's it's FULL. Another GENRE B-movie..but still CLASSIC!
