Can't at least one of those Viet soldiers shoot?
12 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I mean seriously. This is supposed to be an army, but not a single soldier can shoot. I have never seen more inaccurate shooting in my life. At the end, I was rooting for the bad guys, just so that they could get one shot on target. Just one... Just one... Even a lost bullet or a ricochet

Otherwise, it was a totally predictable movie, with the expected "plot twists" and a familiar happy ending. However, it could be good for some absolutely mindless entertainment. Movies like this and Deadly Prey are always fun to watch, because they are just that - pure minldless fun. Just browse the internet or something while watching it, because the entertainment value is definitely not constant. I could only take so many inaccurate shots fired by the bad guys.
