It's Dirty Dozen meets Rambo meets Apocalypse Now as action heavyweight Sammo Hung (Martial Law, Magnificent Butcher) and Yuen Biao (Dragons Forever) lead the extraordinary cast of Eastern Condors into the Vietcong territory for some brutal and in-your-face action. The U.S. Pentagon sends a group of Chinese prisoners as decoys for a secret mission to destroy a munitions dump the U.S. Army left in Vietnam when it pulled out. When a plane carrying the actual commandos crashes, Hung and Yuen lead the unsuspecting criminals on the mission of their lives. They get caught up with gorgeous Vietcong rebels (led by Miss Hong Kong Mina Joyce Godenzi), meet a cruel and giggly general (Yuen Wah) and get tortured to within an inch of their lives. Even action maestro Yuen Wo Ping (The Matrix, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) gets a cameo role in this exciting, adrenaline-packed testosterone-charged bash through the jungles.
