Posted by Josh Samford On May - 21 - 2011
Bruno Mattei. Claudio Fragrasso. Truly the forebears of the Coen Bros. legacy. Today we present one of their most masterful pieces of work. The classic war drama known as Strike Commando. A truly touching and sentimental drama expressing the anguish of a country still torn apart by the Vietnam conflict. Read on and discover more of this classic Reb Brown vehicle!

The Plot: Sgt. Michael Ransom (Reb brown) is part of an elite unit known as The Strike Commandos. While investigating a camp of North Vietnamese during a covert operation, Ransom and his team are double-crossed by Col. Radek (Christopher Connelly) who sets off a series of explosives within the rebel base before Random and his crew were due back at the rendezvous point. The entire Strike Commando force are blown to bits, except for Ransom who is only knocked into a nearby river. As he floats down stream, he eventually stumbles upon a group of friendly natives who inform him of a Russian force making its way into Vietnam. When he manages to escape via a helicopter, the poor Vietnamese locals who helped him are captured. Ransom heads back home to confront Col. Radek but is given the opportunity to head right back to Vietnam as a rogue agent in order to discover proof of the Russian involvement within Vietnam. While doing this Ransom must also track down those who helped him and free them from captivity.
