Search And Destroy was one of the first "post Vietnam vet" movies, and was one of the best. It wasn't about a super-human green beret who can kick everyone's butt, but rather a story of revenge. The music in the movie, especially the end title sequence is nothing short of great. Perry King was excellent in the film, and I followed all of Don Stroud's movies afterward to see if he did anything 'martial art' after. The movie is suspenseful, with a villain who will stop at nothing until everyone dies, and really brings out the primal feelings in keeping yourself and those you love around you, alive. This was one of my top movies from the 1970's.\classicalloy
