YMMV / Strike Commando

  • Complete Monster: Jakoda, head of the Communist Russian forces in Vietnam, intends to kill Mike Ransom slowly and horribly. As the leader of the Russians, Jakoda makes it his job, and pleasure, to torture and kill almost everyone he encounters. In his home base, Jakoda subjects all captives to savage torture with Ransom himself suffering painful electrocution. When Jakoda learns a native village has been sheltering Ransom, he leads his troops there and initiates a massacre of men, women and children, slaughtering everyone except a little boy who befriended Ransom, with the boy surviving long enough to die in Ransom's arms wishing he could have seen Disneyland just once. Jakoda spends the rest of the film trying to kill Ransom and will stop at nothing to kill the "Americanski."
  • Narm Charm: The attempts at all seriousness has to be seen to be believed. Especially Ransom trying to comfort the dying Vietnamese kid he met before about what Disneyland is like.
  • So Bad, It's Good: One of the most famous examples is on a par with The Room. Some people even think that the film is so badly fun that it looks like an attempt to create the maximum possible parody of cheap 80s action movies.
  • Snark Bait: Because of very rude plagiarism, cheap special effects and completely insane Narm Charm in any scene occurring on the screen.
  • Memetic Mutation: The film is so narmy that among the youtube movie reviewers it has become popular to insert fragments from it into own reviews as a parody of a bad dramatic plays.
  • Mexicans Love Speedy Gonzales: Jakoda is so cartoonishly evil that Soviet and Russian audiences simply adored him.
  • Watch It for the Meme: Probably the only reason you're watching the movie now is the review from Spoony and the massive ridicule of the movie.
