Storyline

After several American and British military personnel are killed in suicide attacks throughout southeast Asia, the U.S. begins to suspect a plot by the Vietnam government. To uncover the truth, the U.S. army calls upon a former commando who is looking for his long-lost son in Vietnam. While his military commanders want to see the commando succeed in his mission, his political overseers have a different set of plans. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Not Good.
22 October 2001 | by MazzariniSee all my reviews

I am not a big fan of Bruno Mattei, in fact I think his films are terrible, but for some reason I still watch them when I find them. This one, like STRIKE COMMANDO followed the plot of RAMBO FIRST BLOOD PART II to the letter. If only it was as well made as the Stallone film then it might be worth watching but alas it is not. The acting is awful, not even genre vets Pleasence, Pigozzi, Monty or Vanni can lift this film. The script doesn't help, in that it is littered with pathetic humour that wouldn't fit in a CARRY ON movie, a good example being when hero O'Keefe races through the Russian / Vietnamese camp on a motorcycle and runs over one of the enemy, one gets stuck on the front of the bike and the heroes throw him off with the cheesy line "no hitchhikers" or something banal like that. Just avoid it at all costs
