Storyline

Michael, a Vietnam vet with two kids, pulls off a bank heist with his gang, which includes the bank's manager. To ensure the loyalty of everyone involved, Mike makes a special set of keys, so that the hiding place for the loot can only be opened if all the members are present. The bank manager, however, gets cold feet and tries to back out, so Mike and his buddies kill him and his wife. His daughter, however, gets hold of the key and runs for help to David, one of her father's old friends who also happens to be a Vietnam vet and a former comrade of Michael's. Will David be able to protect his friend's daughter? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Goofs

In the fight scene at the horse ranch, David Moore (Ed Neil) grows a week's worth of beard at the end of the fight. During the fight he is clean-shaven. However, when the fight is over, he has a full beard (looks like a week's worth of growth). See more »

Amazing action...Crappy acting.

I watch this movie every weekend because of the sheer humorous acting and the brutal fighting. the fighting is alot better than most recent movies...but, story cannot play out correctly due to really bad acting. I bought this movie for $5 on DVD at K-mart and it's possibly the greatest 5 bucks I've ever spent. There are some scenes where I'll just break out and laugh at because Data from "The Goonies" (Jonathon ke quan) beats the tar out of a 300 lb muscle man. If's you find this movie,by all means buy it. It's one of the funniest movies i've ever seen...sadly, it isn't supposed to be.
