A let down from Bruno
5 January 2008 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Bruno Mattei jumped on both the Vietnam and 80's cop genre (namely the Vietnam cop drama OFF LIMITS) with this utterly confusing actioner. Military police Morgan (Sam Huff) and Hawk (Max Laurel) are assigned by Captain Kirk (yes, Captain Kirk!) to find out why members of a unit called Cobra Squad are killing high ranking members of the military as the Vietnam war draws to a close. This is really a chore to get through. The film does offer a few bits of action and violence (explosions culled from Mattei's earlier STRIKE COMMANDO and a car chase done with miniatures from Antonio Margheriti's ARK OF THE SUN GOD), but it is so damn confusing to keep track of why characters are going here or there. The end twist - something involving Russians - comes out of nowhere. The film's opening scene with the Cobra Squad attacking in slo-mo while wearing gas masks is pretty effective though. Huff teamed up with Mattei the next year for RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK riff STRIKE COMMANDO 2, which is much better than this.
