After a retired US army man is murdered by a crime lord, his two sons, one of them adopted after the old man rescued him from Cambodia during the Vietnam war, train hard and then start looking for the criminal to avenge their father.
Oh dear, here's part of his Curriculum Vitae that action man, Frank Zagarino would probably rather omit. This is your typical, android learns humanity whilst being hunted by his makers type affair (an idea in fact, that was much better implemented in the later film Solo, starring Mario Van Peebles).
Sadly, this suffers horribly from a poor dub, lacklustre action sequences and a particularly sloppy and frankly embarrassing, childish story concerning an annoyingly (overdubbed) voiced, wide eyed kid who befriends our hero.
Henry Silva joins the cast as, yes you've guess it, the main villain of the piece who has a propensity to utter such lines as 'I don't give a good Goddam!' and 'You son of a bitch!' with some frequency.
In all honesty the only highlight on offer in this, is actually the surprisingly poignant ending which is, against all probability, handled with some not inconsiderable visual flare and emotional pathos.
Oh well, you can't win 'em all I guess.
