Walken heads up a mature generation of 'Nam vets on a mission to fight some drug lords

McBain review

The average age of the combat soldier in Vietnam was 19. Not in this movie.

Christopher Walken, looking sepulchral at 48, takes a squad of gone-to-seed ‘Nam vets out of retirement to fight Colombian drug lords.

Directed by grindhouse auteur James Glickenhaus (The Exterminator), it’s a movie of cheesy pleasures: sub-A-Team gunfights and the priceless moment when Walken shoots the pilot of an enemy jet with a handgun... from another plane’s cockpit!

“All my films are comedies of the absurd,” says Glickenhaus. True, dat.
