Cheap Rambo/Missing in Action Ripoff
5 January 2003 | by (FL,USA) – See all my reviews

SPOLIERS: This move is about an Australian (Norton) turned American ex-Special Force Namn Vet whose daughter and wife is killed and he hits rock bottom. He is then recruited to finding some missing MIA's at the former prison camp he was at in Vietnam before breaking out. A prisoner there was his ex-Commanding Officer. So he gets a ragtag force and goes off into the jungles of Namn to search for these MIA"S. With the help of an Australian they get to the camp and are captured by a guy that looks just like the Prison Warden on Missing in Action 2. They are able to break out and Norton kills the Prison Guard in an exhibition of martial arts. He along with his comrades which die one by one once they get closer to the "pick" up point, fight their ways through the jungles of Namn. At the end only Norton and one of his comrades survive, the prisoner that they have dies in the helicopter. Norton then realizes that it was a waste of an operation.

This movie is a cheap Rambo/Missing in Action 2 ripoff. The acting was horrible, the plot is rehashed from other similiar type movies. Norton shows us why he will never get beyond the "B" rated Martial Arts/Action type flicks. The scenes were amateurish. I am not suprised that noone has commented on this film. I believe that I am the only Western to have been foolish to have purchased the video. This movie I am sure was released in Hong Kong and other parts of Asia, where Norton and other "B" rated Martial Arts/Action Stars have loyal followings. This movie will not even get seen on USA or FX or any of the 7-8 different Showtimes, HBO's or any other channel that occasionally play less than stellar films. If you run by this in a video store of some kind, than go to the manager and complement him on his ability to get utter forgetable films. I sincerely believe that I am maybe in the thousands, hell maybe in the hundreds of Americans who have seen this movie. In a way it does make me somewhat glad.

I would recommend only seeing this if you can either get the video at a very cheap price under $2.00 , over that amount and you will have wasted valuable dollars.
