Storyline

After ex-cop and highly decorated war hero Chet Costa's Vietnamese girlfriend disappears, he accepts a risky mission: he shall blow up a bridge at the Vietnamese border to close the Vietcong's line of communication. He's given a group of prisoners to accompany him. Already on the way there their helicopter is shot down; a march through the wilderness begins. When his soldiers recognize that they're effectively on a suicide mission, they decide to get rid of their Seargent and to flee to Bangkok.

Pretty bad...
12 October 2000 | by (Lausanne, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Too sad. The Italian B-movies directed during the late 80's don't have the "magic" of the earlier films.

Nothing original here. You know how the movie will end after the first 20 minutes. Donald Pleasance seems so tired that he looks like he's gonna faint.

The film is not very violent, it contains no gore, except for one short scene where a guy has his foot stock in a trap, and a pair of t**s.

There's also a nice love story. But does the audience for this kind of films care ? I did. Because it was surprisingly the most interesting thing in this movie.
