This film boasts of a movie where a group of soldiers has to fend off Nazis in caves...well there is one tunnel that is obviously not much of anything new from what we see through most of the film so no, there are no caves to speak of. No payoff either as the movie kind of just ends, taunting a sequel. The film has a couple of good action sequences, but the film basically uses the same place the entire time as our heroes die quite easily to the point knife throwing dude literally gets to show off his skill one time before he is shot dead! The story, it goes a little something like this, Fred Williamson who is over 80 is rounding up people Nick Fury style to try and secure some sort of device that is none of our business because we only get to see the lights it produces. He gets karate instructors, a Texan who uses hopelessly outdated weapons, a knife throwing guy who I am sure is usually amazing (we hardly knew ye), super fat Quentin Tarantino and camouflage preacher or priest or whatever. Their opponent, a group of faceless men in radioactive gear because unlike the heroes, they are at least smart enough to wear equipment in Chernobyl! Stars are few and far between as I know Fred Williamson and Lorenzo, but the rest are a bunch of people with horrible accents. The female instructor's is the worst as I would have kept her lines to a minimum. The elite team does pretty well, but they lose way more people to death than they should as most of them die kind of stupidly or avoidably and still not sure what happened to cowboy, my guess is, he shot himself reaching for his booze... So, there are good action scenes but there is too many scenes of dialog in this thing. They made the plot more complicated than it need be, just should of been retrieve something and get out without the tease for a sequel I am sure never materialized. I also would be embarrassed if I was fat Quentin and knife guy as they get killed so quickly and easily while an 80 year old man survives the whole ordeal!
