Mary Beth McDonough,
A man's best friend is killed on the streets of New York. The man (Robert Ginty) then transforms into a violent killer, turning New York into a great war zone and Christopher George is the only one to stop him.
Robert Walker does a generally convincing job (except for some exaggerated "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO"s), Christopher George hams it up as a sadistic military nut, Woody Strode livens up every scene he's in as his more sensible boot camp trainer, and Nancy Kwan (the reason I wanted to see this film in the first place) receives fourth billing for about three (pointless) minutes of screen time! The film is alternately dull and unpleasant, sometimes both; all the sides (Cambodians, Vietnamese, Americans) are mostly equally repellent, cold-blooded killers, and the ending is a complete downer. Your best bet would probably be to watch the scenes with Woody Strode, who at least brings some gravity to his character, and skip everything else. *1/2 out of 4.
