Goofs

It's a nice movie, good story, shooting is exaggerated.
21 December 1998 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Mikes is gonna get his pal Jonesie out of the prison from Vietnam, who is there captured one year ago when they were on a mission. But Mike is also getting busted. His sister and 3 of his friends, which he trained in the army, are gonna try to rescue them. It's a nice movie, good story, but the shooting is very exaggerated. Nearly anyone of the 'good' guys are getting hit in the rain of bullets.
