Our country is in big trouble: a ragtag multi-ethnic guerrilla army of
nefarious Communist terrorists led by no-account Russian psycho Rostov
(veteran screen villain Richard Lynch in peak nasty'n'snarly form) have
washed up on the Florida coast. These horrible scumbuckets first
slaughter a boat full of helpless Cuban refugees. Next they butcher a
libidinous teen couple making out on the beach. Then they blow up six
suburban houses populated by folks merrily celebrating the yuletide
holiday with a single rocket launcher. They even gun down nice Latino
youths. Worse yet, they have the appalling gall to attack a mall at the
height of the Christmas shopping season. Why, these foul scum not only
attempt to blow up a church holding a mass, but also a school bus
loaded with little children happily singing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat."
But have no fear, good Americans. Thankfully we got Matt Hunter (legendary martial arts champion and hopelessly wooden thespian Chuck Norris, who co-wrote the senseless script) to save the day. Who's Matt Hunter? Well, apparently he's some kind of former government agent, although we never are told any specific details about his background. Does it matter? Not in the least. Moreover, Hunter has the magical ability to materialize seemingly out of thin air in his souped-up pick-up truck whenever he's needed to stomp some evil commie butt. Nonstop wall-to-wall mondo destructo ultra-violent carnage is the order of the day here. And boy does director Joseph Zito really pour it on thick, blowing up lots of stuff real good, staging insanely go-for-broke vehicular action sequences with rip-snorting aplomb, and racking up an astonishingly hefty body count. Better still, both Joao Fernandes's slick photography and Jay Chattaway's robust, rousing score are up to snuff, Melissa Prophet gives a spectacularly terrible performance as a spunky, yet troublesome lady reporter, Eddie Jones just takes up space as a useless FBI agent, Billy Drago briefly pops up as a slimy drug dealer, the basic overwrought tone represents Reagan era Red Scare paranoia at its most ludicrously hysterical, and Norris cuts loose with a steady series of truly groan-inducing cheesy quips every time he commits a heroic feat. Now, is this film any good? No, it most certainly ain't. In fact, it's exceptionally bad, stupid and utterly mindless. But there's no denying that it's a great deal of so-totally-dreadful-it's-oddly-delectable Grade Z schlocky fun. A real four star high camp 80's trash movie hoot and a half.
