A Z-grade trash classic!
27 March 2005 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

I watched RESCUE FORCE tonight and all I can say is "WOW!" This movie is absolutely insane. The tag line on the box is "Terrorism and revenge in the Middle East" and, sure enough, it delivers all that and more. It is on the level with SAMURAI COP and all the other films that are so damn funny. The first half is a globe trotting adventure, bouncing from Syria (Nevada) to Lebannon (Nevada) to Iran (Nevada) to France (not Nevada) to Nevada (Nevada). A majority of the shots consist of people holding phones/walkie talkie right to their lips so you can't see them moving with the dialogue looped in later. I was so confused that I had to stop it and figure out who was who. Of course, all that changed when top billed Richard Harrison shows up (at the 45 minute mark) and the force begins to rescue (a kidnapped ambassador and his daughter for the curious). The second half is a non-stop orgy of explosions and chicks firing machine guns.

The female C.I.A. agents in the film are named Kiki, Angel and Kelly. Yes, Kiki...Angel...and Kelly. Nothing is funnier than having Bo Gritz (a former Marine who the character Rambo is based on in the books) say gruffly into a microphone, "Get me Kiki on the phone." Cut to Kiki bathing topless at Cannes. And fat white guys running around dressed as Arabs in the Nevada desert. One guy actually says, "I'm heading for the hills. Allah be with you!" Somehow, probably thanks to Gritz, the filmmakers got their hands on LOTS of explosives. There must be at least 7,000 explosions in the final battle. Anyway, a true classic! You have to love any film that features a ferocious 15 minute battle scene and, when it ends, cuts to the female agents pulling into a parking space in France with on screen titles stating: "Next day near Cannes. Kiki and Angel's favorite restaurant."
