      antonis k A mix of pretty much any war flick with unknown actors that perhaps had a hit or two and made this for some extra cash. Nothing new or in this case? nothing to brag about. (5/10) Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Just poor, bad acting, poorly choreographed fight scenes you'd expect from a movie made in the 70s and this is not the more popular and recent version with gene Hackman & Owen Wilson. Be careful not to make the same mistake I did or you'll lose 90 minutes of your life you won't be able to get back! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Your standard 90s straight to video Action flick, at least Thomas Ian Griffith is pretty awesome. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review matt d Pretty gay for an action movie, repetitious, uninteresting. If it got anymore fake it wouldve been shot in my back yard, garage, and local hotel. The acting was about par, if par was junior high drama class. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Sincerely... there are a lot of cliches, nothing is new, there are some good screen shots took in "Vietnam", but at the end the whole thing is made in Philippines etc...and the whole movies is a fake...I'm sorry I watched it all but I didn't liked it. It does not give a lot of the sense of team and the marines?...it's all a little general, to general...to superficial. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Well with this film it had some decent acting but that was about it. The plot was just awful I can see why it only took a few years to remake it into something much better... Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
