Bird season's over, butthorn.
19 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film may be full of plot holes, and it may be cheesy, but as an 80s action flick, it sure is entertaining.

First, you have Gary Busey, fresh from his role as Joshua on Lethal Weapon. A one-man army (Can you say Rambo?), he manages to avoid the fire of numerous machine guns and win with his six shooter. He even faces a Russian General in one of those big bad helicopters that Rambo faced in Rambo II.

Also featuring Henry Silva, a man I love to hate in a movie.

But, the best of all, Danny Trejo. I would watch him paint a room. Too bad he doesn't last long.

Also featured was Lydie Denier, winner of a "Miss Legs International" pageant, but we didn't get to see those legs in her bathtub scene. We had to settle for the top half of Lydie. But, not to worry, she shows them later.

Bulletproof (Busey) heads to Mexico to rescue a prototype tank with the help of the last woman that wants to see him - Devon (Darlanne Fluegel). Of course, they make up. They whip the terrorists, the Mexicans, and the Russians. All in a day's work.
