Marketed in Germany as the sequel to yesterday’s Teddy Page film, this Hong Kong production certainly seems to borrow a lot of ideas, or might well lend them as no production date or any other information at all seems to be available for this incredibly obscure production. Unfortunately obscurity does not a good film make and this is a poorly edited mess without even the action packed climax of Page’s film to make it worthwhile. Read the review of Black Warrior aka Super Platoon and then never bother to track down the limited edition German DVD.
Still two days of Forgotten ‘Nam to go, but this marks the end of the Filipino/HK productions, tomorrow I bring you a forgotten American film and on Sunday a production from Down Under, a reminder that many other countries were also involved in the conflict.
