Frank Stallone-fans beware!
17 July 2004 | by KnatLouieSee all my reviews

*MAY HAVE SPOILERS* (but who cares, this movie isn't special)

This movie is sort of weird, the first part is very confusing, with a bunch of ninjas (who we never see again) raiding a house and killing everyone in it, then Frank Stallone comes along, acting all evil and stuff, and then a kid who's running under a bridge gets stopped by some guy stating he's a cop, who then grabs a bag of drugs from the kid, and says he'll get a lot of cash for it, then the kid asks: "What kind of a cop are you?" to which he replies: "A BAD ONE!" and shoots the kid. *highlight of the movie*

Then we see some mountain-rangers and a couple of scouts who smalltalk in the woods, and then one of the scouts find a crashed plane with a suspicious looking suitcase inside it (and some dead professor-guy who ran off with some secret discs or something), then Stallone send off a bunch of bad guys to retrieve the discs, but the scout has hidden them in a tree, and then one of the rangers arrive to save the day, knocking off all the bad guys one by one, until there's only Stallone left, who then kills himself before the FBI can get a hold of him, (or maybe it was because he only got 5-10 minutes of on-screen time in the movie)

Frank Stallone got first billing as Quill, the bad guy, but is only in the movie in the beginning and shortly at the end! it was a total cheat!

William Zipp who also wrote the script and did a lot of other stuff played Billings, the guy from the wilderness who's also an Vietnam-vet with three Purple Hearts and all sorts of stuff (someone also referred to him as being like "Rambo", and he answered: "WHO??" -which I thought was a bit fun, since the "cheaper" Stallone-brother was in it). Zipp was a convincing reluctant hero, his looks kind of reminded me of Christoper MacDonald (the asshole husband in Thelma & Louise), and his attitude was a bit like Chuck Norris (Missing in Action)

Jill Foors looked good as Monica, maybe a bit too good to be working far out in the woods at some wooden hut selling stuff to the hunters.

Perry Hill played the other guy from the wilderness, Freddie, who's Billings best friend and only companion in the woods (I never really understood what they were doing out there, but they had apparently been out there a LOOONG time, and they weren't too interested in the hot Monica-chick, if you know what I'm insinuating, *nudge-nudge*)

Casey Hirsch played Greg the boyscout who apparently was out there to get his "Survival-mark" or something like that, and he sure got what he came for!

David Roger Harris played the first henchman-leader Leo, who did OK, not too good, and not too bad, enough said.

David Marriott as Jack LaRouse, the new bad guy-leader was great to watch though, with his arrogance and superiority, I really was looking forward to him getting his in the end, he was annoying! And evil too.

All in all, a decent flick, not too gory, so you could watch it with smaller kids too if they're not old enough to see the real "Rambo" in action..

My rating: 7/10, because it was somewhat entertaining, and didn't bore me at all, like other films of the ilk tend to do sometimes.
