Santos attempts to lead a people's revolt in Colombia to overthrow the oppressive El Presidente. When his revolt fails and he is killed, his sister Christina goes to New York to find McBain, a lieutenant Santos rescued during the Vietnam War. McBain agrees to avenge Santos' death, calls up his old war buddies, raises the necessary funds by killing a few drug dealers and threatening the mafia, then leads an attack to topple the corrupt government.

The scenes shot all around New York City were in fact real locations such as the Drug House, The Hospital (where Dalton works), The Brooklyn Bridge (where McBain first meets Santos' sister) and the Hudson River (the fishing scene). Everything involving Colombia was shot entirely in the Phillippines. See more »

[after the team has killed a bunch of drug dealers]
What da fuck do ya want?
Money? Shit man, take da money! You guys sure killed a lot of people for a little money.
People? Who gives a fuck about people like that? Or people like you for that matter.

First of all i'd just like to say this movie rawked more than any of the recent crap that hollywood has cooked up out of its bowels. McBain is a true action film with more violence than most viewers can handle. It has all of the classic elements of a late 80's/early 90's action film....the random gratuitous acts of violence (ie. when Walken and crew go in to confront the drug dealers to get money they just show up and kill them rather than letting them live and just taking their money), the snapping of necks, the guys on fire, the guys that get blown off buildings, and of course the guys who are on fire that get blown off of buildings. Walken is at his finest in this picture delivering memorable lines such as, "let's go sit..........out on the deck." and others that make this film a top buy off of the clearence rack at the local video store. if you have a bloodlust for unnecessary random acts of violence rent this movie today and satisfy your thirst.
