Jakoda: [to Ransom] Hey, hero. Remember that Vietnamese village? With that boy called Lao? Nice boy, wasn't he. That's why I decided to save him for last. He had such fragile bones.

You could do worse.
2 July 2002 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

When you rent a cheap Italian action movie from the mid-eighties, you more or less (should) know what to expect. So, aside from the cut-rate cinematography, it's hard to complain about anything else in "Strike Commando", because it delivers what it promises: non-stop action and mayhem, and a high body count. If you're in the mood for mindless commando-type violence, this movie is better than many similar American flicks. (**)
