Storyline

Vince Deacon, a higly decorated Vietnam War veteran, serves as a SWAT team captain for LAPD. When his family gets attacked by thugs and he kills one of them in self defense he's being suspended by his boss. Deacon and his family decide to spend the weekend camping at a lake to forget about everything but an explosion on their boat kills both his wife and kid. He finds out that Slater, a war buddy-turned-traitor is responsible for the murders. Deacon tracks him down to a small town in the mountains and gets his revenge only to be haunted by a redneck sheriff who happens to be Slater's brother. Not even his former commander, Col. Cain, or the National Guard can stop him now... Written by Martin A. Blatter <blatter@amiga.icu.net.ch>

OK First Blood ripoff
16 August 1999 | by sunny-2See all my reviews

Of all the "First Blood" ripoffs that hit the screen in the eighties this filipino-made movie is clearly one of the better ones. Acting is pretty lousy (with the notable exception of Kaz Garas as the sheriff) but the movie has its good moments.
