Lao: [dying] American... tell me... tell me about Disneyland.
Michael Ransom: [crying] They got tons of popcorn there. All you gotta do is go climb a tree to go eat it. And there's cotton candy. Mountains of it. And chocolate milk, and malts. And there's a genie. A magic genie. And he can't wait to grant your wishes.

"It's just me and you now pussycat"
4 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most entertaining Italian films I've ever sat down to watch. And I really mean that. By the time Reb Brown and Jakoda were squaring up for the most half-arsed punch up ever committed to film, I was dragging my wife away from feeding our kids to see the randomly appearing waterfall, poking her in the shoulder with my finger, crying 'listen to Reb Brown's weird voice'.

Oh, to have been there in 1986 or 1987 when someone probably sneaked a bag of weed onto the set of Strike Commando, causing Bruno Mattei, Claudio Fragasso, and Reb Brown to say 'Ah, we're too stoned to carry this one out, let's just botch it!' turning Strike Commando into what started out as a First Blood 2 clone into something much more profound, and we the audience get to see the actors and staff involved struggle to deliver a coherent film as Brown continually gurns for the camera. No one involved in this film cared about the end product, and what we have is truly one of the funniest films I've ever seen.

Speeches about popcorn growing on trees in Disneyland. The aforementioned punch up which has zero continuity. The second punch up with the same guy which ends so stupidly I couldn't even spoil it here. Brown's err 'disclaimer' at the end of the film. The last half of the movie being totally insane. Brown shrieking 'Our father who art in heaven' in a weird 'hair-metal' voice.

Honestly, Bruno Mattei is just beyond crazy. He seems to tackle his films in the most lazy way, just hoping he gets to the end somehow and submits a film that lasts 90 minutes. For some reason, when he does that, we end up with greatness. I hail Bruno Mattei for Strike Commando, truly one of the greatest product to emerge from Italy.
