In step a team of rugged Americans; ... read more

I remember, when this movie was released, it was pretty huge but since it looked really stupid, I really didn’t care for it. Eventually, after a few weeks after it was released in France, I received the VHS in the mail, sent by my buddies from the US. It was one of those American VHS with a cardboard box, instead of the plastic ones you had in Europe, and there was even a pretty neat hologram of... read more

" Date: 7/4/2019 Viewed: 4K HUD Re-watch Note: I decide to rewatch this movie for 4th of July since it has been years since I seen it. This movie looked and sound amazing in 4K UHD because everything looks so clean and clear. It felt like I was a watching a brand-new movie. This is not a good movie at all because the movie has a messy script with some bad plot holes. I still enjoy this movie because the movie has fun characters and cool action scenes. Not to mention this movie is little bit "
