Storyline

Vince Deacon, a higly decorated Vietnam War veteran, serves as a SWAT team captain for LAPD. When his family gets attacked by thugs and he kills one of them in self defense he's being suspended by his boss. Deacon and his family decide to spend the weekend camping at a lake to forget about everything but an explosion on their boat kills both his wife and kid. He finds out that Slater, a war buddy-turned-traitor is responsible for the murders. Deacon tracks him down to a small town in the mountains and gets his revenge only to be haunted by a redneck sheriff who happens to be Slater's brother. Not even his former commander, Col. Cain, or the National Guard can stop him now... Written by Martin A. Blatter <blatter@amiga.icu.net.ch>

This is one funny movie!
15 October 2003 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Final Mission (1984) is one of those cheesy, no budget First Blood rip-offs. Unlike the other Rambo wannabes, this movie's great. The director has no shame, he blatantly copies scene-for-scene and shot-for-shot from First Blood. Others may see this as a rip-off, I see it as a funny, horribly acted, badly written and cheesy as hell action picture. There are many scenes from this movie that still boggle my mind. Even today I still wonder if a Gun shop would have an M-60 machine gun (with a full cartridge box) in a storefront window display or is it really sanitary to use a dirty knife to pop out a bullet?

I highly recommend this movie, it plays like a comedy instead of a serious action/revenge film. A word of advice, stay away from open motor boats. They always seem to explode in these type of movie.

Highly recommended.

A (for the cheese factor) F (as a straight movie)
