Goofs

When the drug lord is first seen, several "prisoners" are executed by hanging. They are clearly wearing harnesses under their clothing that suspend them from the rope when the stones are kicked out from under their feet. See more »

Quotes

Mercenary: [talking to python] My lovely little snake! You slippery little thing. I wish I could have a pair of fangs like yours. Your belly's like a glob of spit to the touch, you slimy, wretched, oversized eel! Mm, I love ya! Come here and give me another kiss with those big fangs. Ha ha ha ha!

Gory jungle shocker.
15 February 2006 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

A special forces Sergeant named Wilson is sent into the Viet Nam jungle to find and hunt down an army of bloodthirsty cannibals headed by a demented war criminal."Cannibal Mercenary" is one hell of a brutal and gory flick.The acting is quite convincing and the film offers plenty of war images including numerous shoot-outs and explosions.The actor who plays a broken anti-hero Wilson is especially good.The camera work is awesome and the gore is absolutely brutal.For example there are decapitations,throat slashings,castrations and lots of ultra-violent torture on display.The scene where one man is buried up to his neck and his unprotected head is cracked open with hammer and chisel has to be seen to be believed.Overall,"Cannibal Mercenary" is a very nasty Thai exploitation flick that should especially satisfy fans of Italian cannibal flicks.If you are not easily offended,give this gruesome shocker a look.8 out of 10.
