| Cheap, stupid and racist... and fun!
Not my genre really these shoddy fillipino war flicks, but this one was odd enough to be entertaining as trash. A sad Rambo-wannabe sergeant with an effeminate voice goes on a mission that my brain failed to register, probably to blow some secret Vietcong stuff up or something. Once into the sweaty vietnamese jungle we get a super-high bodycount, gore, nasty jungle traps and idiotic dialogue, i.e the usual stuff, but this movie is grittier, schlockier and more primitive than your usual Rambo knock-off. Also worth mentioning is that this movie has some strong racist tendencies, against the vietnamese as expected (they are seen slaughtering live animals and dancing around in primitive voodoo-style) but also against jive-talking ("dubber-on-crack" jive) black solider, who was so much a racist stereotype you half expected him to show up eating watermelons and doing Chris Rock impressions. Since this film is pure trash that nobody can take seriously it only added to the fun for me. "Dedicated to The Duke and all the boys who served in 'Nam"!! :)
