This is better than Terminator 2 and Hard Target combined!
14 April 1999 | by (Mt. Olive, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Gosh! How come nobody in my town has seen this masterpiece? Probably 'cause it's too hard to find. Either way, I have taped it off of HBO and love every minute of it. It was actually the second or third movie I had in my collection of over 2,000 videos. And it's still the best action movie I've ever seen, or at least that I can think of. Everybody's always complaining about action movies not having enough action. That's not true with this one...95% action and 5% talking. It still has a plot, too. Here it goes: Major Ironhand goes down during a firefight and he parachutes down with his buddy. So this airforce guy battles some Viet Cong soldiers until a special-forces team of six guys arrives. They battle about 200 of the enemies to rescue him, but then they gotta get him out. Another 200 army dudes are out there, even though Santiago uses the same extras over and over. No problem, though; the squibs are abundant, the music is riveting, the dialogue ain't too shabby, and the action, of course, is non-stop. The ending is tremendous, having more shootouts than Hollywood can offer. My only complaint: David Carradine is limited to a small role, but besides, he saves the day! Jimmy T. is my favorite character, too. Dramatic stuff there. Cirio Santiago, you rule! Thanks, man, for making the greatest action movie of all-time. Platoon sucks compared to this.
