What??!?!!!
4 October 1999 | by AylmerSee all my reviews

Absolutely absurd action thriller from the absolutely inept minds of Bruno Mattei and Claudio Fragasso. Starts off as the usual cop theme (heavily owing to the Gregory Hines/Willem Dafoe movie OFF LIMITS which came out earlier that year) with two unlikely partners seeking out some criminals, when suddenly they are paid by some military general (Werner Pochath) to kill some commander in Vietnam. The film deteriorates into a Vietnam shoot-em-up with obvious stock footage and terrible editing, culminating into a spy-thriller/ James Bond style conclusion. The music, cinematography, acting, and especially the direction were completely flat and horrible.

The filmmakers obviously had no idea how to film a movie. All action is filmed from the left side, all medium shots, and sometimes the camera isn't even pointed at the action or is too far away from the action for us to tell what's going on! Even a grade A supporting cast of Italian exploitation stars (Romano Puppo, Ottaviano Dell'Acqua, Massimo Vanni, and Luciano Pigozzi...supposedly) and an unbilled cameo by Brett Halsey doesn't help this one. It makes no sense at all, but is able to stay so charmingly silly that this film is perfect for parties, Mystery Science Theater, or bad movie festivals. They honestly don't ever get any funnier than this.
