Goofs

When the large-caliber machine gun is captured from the 'Vietnamese' troops and used against the ones conveniently lined up in a wooden shack, a close-up view of the front of the gun clearly shows the belt feeding it to be loaded with blanks, with the crimped ends. See more »

This movie isn't as bad as it has been portrayed here...
27 April 2005 | by (MS Gulf Coast) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie late one night. There was nothing else to watch, so I gave this a shot. I was pleasantly surprised. No, it does not have a big budget, so it is not going to rival a Hollywood blockbuster. If one goes into not expecting top of the line acting, cinematography, sound, and set then one probably won't be disappointed.

This is a B movie, so expect B move quality, not Spielberg. The plot was good, Thomas Ian Griffith is underrated. His martial arts skills are actually pretty good. He is not a small man, like Van Damme or Bruce Willis, but a physically imposing specimen, like Dolph Lundgren. Thisis the first movie Iremember seeing him in and I was impressed. If you want a way to kill an hour and a half, watch it.
