Low-octaine Vietnam Vet actioner
7 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

I am a big mark on Italian films, but this film is just plain boring. Bo Svenson and Peter Hootens together again (last seen in INGLORIOUS BASTARDS in 1978) joins the Late Werner Porchat (a part-time drag queen commando) in another Italian commando film. The reason why I hate this film so much is that Martin Balsam and Bo Svenson have a very familar voice, and they are dubbed in this film by someone else! The film also is very slow moving and the soundtrack has no energy. I can't comment on the acting for the three U.S. stars are dubbed. Not recommended.
