Private Luc Deveraux and his sadistic sergeant, Andrew Scott, got killed in Vietnam. The army uses their bodies for a secret project - reanimating dead soldiers as deadly obedient cyborgs. However, their memories come back too.
Jean-Claude Van Damme,
This is an excellent film. Perhaps it is a bit old fashioned because it is inundated with moral decisions and high ideas. The purity of the film is superb. This film has similarities to the most recent Rocky and Cinderella man but with a low budget. It is not cynical but it has many sad moments and a realism about the frequency that death affects the lives of people. It is also a film that addresses family loyalty. It is very complimentary to Ireland but only covers a small section of the society.
Perhaps, reviewers believe that a young boy has to be sarcastic like in a show like the Simpsons. But this kid is genuine. The relationship between father and son is not some twisted argumentative thing. This film at its heart is about heroes. It is certain to annoy both extreme left and right wing people who believe all people are flawed fools.
Language. I am not a linguist so I do not know if the language was perfect Irish accent. But it certainly would encourage people to go to Ireland. The boxing scenes were no more brutal than Rocky; There was a small amount of swearing and no sleazy scenes. I took my 13 year old daughter to see this film. She loved it. Michael Madsen is a fine actor and the role is a great. It was an entirely adult audience that seemed to like this film with applause at the end. Too bad that this film is likely to slip below the radar.
