This is one weird flick. There’s a commentary buried deep in here but it’s clouded by useless details. This is one of Troma’s most depressing movies. Their characters are usually merrier and funnier. Troma’s War is so crude it triggers serial headaches. When you’re not trying to put up with the confusing story, you’re trying to figure out who’s who. The characters are severely underdeveloped.
If world news don’t sadden you, this movie will. It is bleak, dishearten and downright tedious. No amount of machine gun bullets can save this one from total boredom. The best parts are right out of a horror movie and are quite enjoyable but they are sparse and disjointed. Basically, this is an immature war movie that doesn’t know what it wants to be. The editing is horrendous. The pacing is odd.
What happened here? Who is this movie for? Communists? Warmongers? When it doesn’t turn into a music video, it’s an awkward slapstick comedy. Snakes and terrorists are equally dangerous, in this film, which shows just how weak the writing is. This film is thirty minutes too long. It doesn't even fall into the "so bad it's good" category. It is simply awful, through and through.
