Ludicrously violent war movie, notable only for being director John Woo's first foray into gung-ho gunplay that's since become his forte.
Every plot twist is improbable or just plain ridiculous, every character a hackneyed stereotype or just there for cannon fodder, and every line of poorly subbed dialogue unintentionally funny. In other words, I thought it was great.
Definitely worth taking a look at if you're in the mood for some truly mindless violence, or if you're a Woo completist.
