Storyline

In this unearthed lost movie from 1990 that the studio deemed too terrible to release, a Vietnam Veteran Sal Bando(Sorbo), tortured by his past as a Poolboy returns home to Van Nuys, California, and a country he doesn't recognize, in which it seems only Mexicans run pool-cleaning companies. Bando sets off on a brutal mission to reclaim his "rightful" vocation and enact revenge on the man(Trejo) who killed his wife and son. Written by Anonymous

A sly self-referential movie.
16 November 2012 | by (Tristan da Cunha) – See all my reviews

This movie might appear terrible, low-budget crap but it's actually quite an intelligent film. It is self-referential in that it becomes a scathing commentary on action/war movies such as Lethal Weapon, Rocky and Apocalypse Now, while at the same time reacting and intersecting with other narratives such as "porn" and "blaxplotation" films. And it's f'n funny. Don't listen to the haters...go into it with an OPEN mind...it's actually quite good in, again, a gentle mocking, side-long smirk at's own stupidity (and as an extension, the whole spoon-fed mass media grub we suck down without ever questioning the basis for such narratives such as racism, titillation of both flesh and fear, blood lust and revenge flicks). And it's f'n funny.
