Robocop and the guy from Airplane go to war in South America
10 December 2001 | by (Lisle, IL) – See all my reviews

take one part Commado, two parts Rambo, one part Lethal weapon, and one half teaspoon of Airplane! and you've got Fifty/Fifty. It's yet another one of those eighties b-movie rambo based war movies. Where people in SouthAmerica/Africa/SouthAsia are being ruled by a harsh dictator or some such and our heros come in unite the people defeat said dictator and the movie ends. See McBain, Commando, POW The Escape, Dogs Of War, Rambo, and thousands of others like it at your local video store. These movies rule for the simply fact of low expectations, lots of gun play and explosions and cookie cutter plots and charecters. Thses movies are Americas version of 60's and 70's martial arts films from China and Japan.
