| Vietnam revenge comes to Niagara Falls ............
Take the "Maid of the Mist" tour boat, great Niagara Falls photography, and drop in a solid Vietnam revenge story. What you get is a surprisingly entertaining film, "Search and Destroy." Perry King and Don Stroud are the targets for a former War buddy, who is now their Vietnamese enemy seeking revenge after being left for dead. George Kennedy heads the not so helpful police. The movie is exciting and a terrific score is another plus. "Search and Destroy" is one of those films that, although clearly a "B" movie with an obvious limited budget, manages to greatly exceed expectations. It's worth me pounding the table for those who appreciate this type. I guarantee you will not be disappointed, and you may even wish to tell others about your unknown film discovery. - MERK
