A group of rednecks attempt to steal his money and then murder his wife and son. Major Rane vows revenge...

!!This movie contains examples of:
* BigBad: "The Texan," leader of the gang that killed Rane's family.
%%* CoolShades
* FanDisservice: The climax takes place in a brothel with several naked women... while the men there (the rednecks) are getting slaughtered left and right by Rane and Johnny.
* FiringOneHanded: A necessity for Rane, because he only has one hand.
* HandicappedBadass: Rane gets his hand ''shredded'' on a trash disposal by the rednecks when they steal the silver dollars. He uses a hook hand (which he sharpens to a table-and-head penetrating point) for the rest of the film, and loses very little capacity to kick ass because of this.

* ShellShockedVeteran: Major Charles Rane and his buddy Sergeant Johnny Vohden
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: Rane and Johnny use shotguns in the final shootout.
* TheStoic: Rane. He's so shell-shocked that his hand getting shredded makes him have flashbacks to his torture as a POV, but absolutely no external response (like screaming).
