Film: Strike Commando

A 1987 action film starring Reb Brown.

In it he plays Michael Ransom, one of the eponymous strike commandos sent into Vietnam to blow up a base. While the mission is successful, Ransom's teammates are killed and he is knocked unconscious into a river. He comes to at a village where the people have saved him and nursed him back to health, eventually befriending them. In return he guides them to safety before eventually being picked up by his unit. He's soon sent back to uncover if any Russian soldiers are snooping around the area, sadly coming across the village that saved him, now slaughtered by said Russians. Say the least, It's Personal and major ass kicking ensues.

Gained a sequel, but it didn't star Reb.

Can be watched here.

  • Not Quite Dead: Jakoda returns before the end for the final showdown.
  • Red Scare: The Soviets are depicted this way.
  • Say My Name: "JAKOOOOOOTA!!!"
    • "RAAAADEEEEEEEEK! YOU TRAITOR!!!"
      • "AMEEEERIKAAAAANSKIIIII!!!"
  • Screaming Warrior: It's Reb Brown folks, what did you expect?
