Low Budget, Low Brow, Low Expectations

One of those movies that when you find yourself watching it the only entertainment is amusement at the tacky production values, abysmal acting, and laughable storyline. There should have been two silhouettes in the foreground making snarky remarks.

This must have been shot sometime in the late 70s because of the men's fashions, hairstyles and mustaches. It concerns an American veteran of the Vietnam War who was betrayed by his Army buddy and spent 5 years in a POW camp. He gets home and wants revenge on his old buddy. The police take him in because the old buddy is now running drugs out of Southeast Asia and is a very nasty character. Richard Roundtree buddies up with the betrayed veteran and they go hunting the bad guy all over Thailand. Lots of poorly staged martial arts fights. Ludicrous gun battles. Sets that must have cost all of $15 to construct.

This is an Italian movie that was made without an American military technical adviser and it shows. I'm trying to think of a reason why anyone would want to watch this movie but I can't think of one. Oh that's right, there's some gratuitous nudity.
