old-timers in cheap B-movie
9 October 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Five young soldiers, Matt Stasny, Barry Dempsey, Elliott Ackers, Vic Skinner, and Shane Jones, have been captured by Afghan warlord Abdul Al-Raazaq. Their military grandparents Mick Skinner (Bo Svenson), Jean Dempsey (Margot Kidder), Lou Jones (Louis Gossett Jr.), Dominic Ackers (Seymour Cassel), and Paul Stansy (Cedric Smith) decide to go and find their missing grandsons.

This has plenty of good acting talent in these old-timers. These are actors who still have gas in the tank. It's too bad that they are reduced to making these cheap B-movies. It tries to be serious but it can't be serious. The other minor actors are pretty bad. The locations are unconvincing. It is good to see some of these old geezers but it is sad to see the sandbox they're given to play in.
