We have even more 'namsploitation this week, the counterpart to LEATHERNECKS we released a few weeks back, also directed by Ignazio Dolce and starring Richard Hatch. This one is a little more serious in tone, but an entertaining Vietnam action flick none-the-less.
Another bit of news, we did our fist test run of a trading card for SCORPION THUNDERBOLT. We will be putting these in every order from now on and when they are gone, they are gone. As soon as we can get it all organized, we will be printing up a series of 31 new cards and will be including various ones in all orders for free..........
LAST PLATOON (1988)
When his Vietnamese girlfriend disappears, an ex-cop who is a highly decorated war hero accepts a risky mission after deciding he has nothing to loose. The dangerous mission is go to the Vietnamese border and blow up a bridge which will close the Vietcong's line of communication.
He's given a group of prisoners to accompany him that includes some cons he had previously arrested back in his police force days. As soon as they head out, their helicopter is shot down and the march through the deadly jungles of Vietnam begins. When his soldiers recognize that they are effectively on a suicide mission, they band together and start to make plans to defect.
Actor-turned director Ignazio Dolce (Leathernecks) again teams up with star Richard Hatch (Capt. Apollo in the original Battlestar Galactica) for another spaghetti war flick, but this time aims for a more realistic, gritty feel than Rambo-style exploitation. Donald Pleasence (Halloween) also stars and it is written by the prolific Italian screenwriter Tito Carpi.
