You just have to watch this movie, it’s B movie greatness which should have you rolling in the aisles.
Plot: While operating behind enemy lines, Sgt. Mike Ransom learns of a Russian presence in North Vietnam. Ordered to obtain proof of this discovery, Ransom returns to enemy territory but is captured and subjected to a variety of tortures. Eventually he escapes to continue his mission despite being hampered by a traitor in his own ranks.
Review: If you haven’t watched this movie then you really need to check it out; it’s one of the best worst films I’ve ever seen. It’s a blatant rip-off of Rambo 2 and Missing in Action but not half as awesome. It looks like it has a budget of 10 dollars and stars the legendary Reb Brown.
It’s a European action movie and has some of the bizarrest dubbing of all time. You know the kinda movie you watch with your buddies on a Saturday night while drinking beer and munching pizza? This is it; It has more cheese than Holland!
The bad guys are meant to be Russian, we know this because they keep calling Mike Ransom (awesome name by the way) Americanski… as you do.
The best bit is when he has the (really crap) fight with the Russian bad guy at the end and Ransom sticks a hand grenade in the Russian’s gob and punches him. The Russian blows up and then about 5 seconds later you hear “Americanski” again. Utterly crazy and quite brilliant.
There are tons of ‘Splosions and you’ll never be bored because you’ll be too busy laughing at it.
The music sounds like it was done on the world’s cheapest keyboard only adding the sheer quality of the film.
I love how Mike Ransom just screams all the time, so he’s actually a pretty crap soldier; He’ll leap out of the water and scream for 15 seconds before even firing his gun, but he could take a week as the rest of the cast just look on, bemused.
Overall, you just have to watch this movie, it’s B movie greatness which should have you rolling in the aisles.
