Storyline

During the Vietnam War, three U.S. Army troops, led by the tough-hearted Sgt. Holt, survive a Viet Cong ambush and rescue two undercover agents, named Hawkins and Jensen, whom are seeking out a mysterious Army Intelligence agent, known only as 'the General' who has classified documents detailing an illegal arms deal between a corrupt Army general, named Delevane based in the Pentagon, whom is involved in an arms-for-profit deal with a corrupt U.S. Army officer back in Vietnam, named Colonal Harker, whom has his men led by the murderous Lt. Smitty seek out 'the General' and kill him before he can disclose the info needed to end the war. As Holt and his men try to survive from both enemy Viet Cong soldiers and corrupt U.S. troops from killing them, he eventually learns that the people whom he thought he could trust are his enemies, and those whom he thinks are his enemies are really his only allies.

Great muzzle flashes!
9 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This AIP war movie is a genre for which I have a very simplistic method of rating: I count the number of muzzle flashes displayed in it, and note something about their beauty. I do not expect realism, good acting, proper tactics, or even much plot. I sit back, watch the action, and enjoy myself. I do a lot of laughing, but that's what I expect and I get a good time out of it.

As for details, this film had 884 muzzle flashes, which makes it a solid 6-star movie on my scale (8 stars is max, and no actual film has ever achieved that--it takes 3200 flashes to do that). There are about 20 films that have achieved the 6-star rating or higher, but what sets this one apart is that about half of the flashes (almost 400) happen in the very first 5 minutes of the movie (and the action is at night). The flames are quite spectacular.

The plot (such as it is) has several interesting twists that I found unexpected and, therefore, interesting.
