It CAN be done
11 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of several hundred films Bruno Mattei made during 1988, this one features the entire cast of Cop Game (Romano, Massimo, Brent, Werner...well those four anyway) in a film that may or may not be set in Vietnam, involving POWs, Brent's Rambo type character, and revenge against a German turned Commie officer, Werner Pocath.

To be honest, since Strike Commando, when I see a Bruno Mattei action film (also involving Clyde Anderson aka Claudio Fragrasso), I just send my brain on a walk to the shops and straps myself in. Non- sensical script? Check. Bamboo huts blowing up? Check. Filipino extras who by no stretch of the imagination look Vietnamese? Check. Massimo Vanni? Check. Who cares about anything else?

Some of reviewer here beat me to the "And all the others..." slow motion speech which for me was the funniest part of the film, but this one is full of madness, from Werner's attempts to kill Huff followed by a "I want him alive", and the refusal of any baddie to take a shot at Huff while he strolls about in the open.

Ah, Bruno, you're sadly missed. This is no Strike Commando, but nothing is Strike Commando - this one is also well worth a watch.

Remember: It CAN be done.
