| Another forgettable Italian Rambo rip-off.
Years after the end of the Vietnam war, American freedom fighter Roger Craig (AKA Commander) continues the battle against the communist Vietcong and their Russian allies, leading raids to free their prisoners.

Just one of countless Rambo rip-offs from the late '80s, this Italian clunker's lead 'actor' Craig Alan helps one appreciate what a great action hero Sylvester Stallone was in his prime. Sly had star power and enormous screen presence, making musclebound Vietnam vet John Rambo a true cinematic icon; in contrast, the uncharismatic Alan is relatively wimpy, and looks utterly gormless throughout this predictable piece of Spaghetti action trash in which his supposedly enraged character, at best, looks mildly agitated.

Where the film does deliver is with the sheer quantity of pyrotechnics and bloody shootouts, with lots of huge explosions and numerous bad guys blown away by our hero, but pedestrian direction from Ignazio Dolce ensures that, despite laying waste to entire villages in an orgy of gunfire, flame and smoke, there is very little in the way of genuine excitement to be had, the whole thing about as banal as this type of thing can get.
