Laughable copy of "Dirty dozen"
9 April 2014 | by MaziunSee all my reviews

This movie is a stupid and cheesy 90's copy of classic "Dirty Dozen". Unfortunately Michael Dudikoff ("American ninja") is no Lee Marvin ("Delta force") and "Soldier boyz" is one bad movie. Everything sucks here – story , acting , dialogues , action scenes…

The American youth here is nothing , but a bunch of stereotypes. The violence on streets , street gangs , violence in family – this are all serious problems , but I doubt that any viewer will take this movie seriously. I mean who would care for such one dimensional characters like white skinhead (with a ridiculously fake swastika tattoo) , tough Latino girl , black "Monster" (that's his nickname !) rapist or Latino macho guy ?

The story is not one bit believable. Dudikoff as experienced ex soldier wouldn't have any problem to find ex-soldiers or at least mercenaries to do the job. Instead he risks the life of untrained and emotionally unstable bunch of psycho teenagers that don't like each other. It only gets dumber later , when he needs only 1 day to train them properly. After one day they are bad ass ! How cool is that ?

I don't remember the last time when I saw such badly done shootouts. The actors don't know at all how to carry the guns ! I love the scene when somebody shoots from the right side and the whole group starts shooting on the left side ! There is also one scene that rip-offs "Platoon". Do I have to mention that it's just as cheesy as the whole movie ?

Michael Dudikoff is very wooden. He tries hard to be an experienced bad ass soldier , but he just isn't convincing in the role. He doesn't even look old ! Yes , they gave him grey hair , but that's too little to convince the audience. The best performance here comes from Cary Hirouki Tagawa ("Showdown in little Tokyo") experienced actor who specializes in playing villains.

The funniest thing here is that it could actually be a decent and fun B-class movie if it was done right. Well , at least it's laughable. I give it 2/10.
