Another Troma masterpiece
9 May 2000 | by (Ottawa, Ontario) – See all my reviews

Tired of all these typical Hollywood macho blast'em all pics? Does the name Rambo elicit in you flu-like symptoms? Well, Troma's War is the cure for you! A perfect send-off of La-la-land's testosterone pics! Unlike, say, the "Hot Shots" parodies, this flick's satire has a lot of bite.
