GETTING EVEN (Italy, 1988)

Original title: La Vendetta
Aka Super Commander





Seller's description:
Directed by Leandro Lucchetti and starring Richard Roundtree, Harrison Muller Jr, Michael J.Aronin, Deborah Keith and Kate Chesher, Maurice Poli and Nello Pazzafini.

FBI agent (Roundtree) picks a fellow Vietnam vet acquaintance out of the gutter to help him catch another guy they both know from Vietnam to stop him from dealing arms.

Original Toshiba lable release - 94 mins approx - Widescreen - mono.



Plot from Z-Grade store on eBay:

This film opens on the mean streets of NYC, when some thugs are attempting to assault a young woman, stripping her naked. Unfortunately for the delinquents, their noise has disturbed the sleep of our faithful hero, former Vietnam Veteran hero Evans (HARRISON MULLER). He takes on the whole gang at once and takes each one down, even though they are sporting chains, knives, and even brass knuckles. But one thug has a shotgun in hand and unloads his blast into Evans. Flash forward to the hospital bed where our injured hero lays unconscious, while the gal he saved watches vigilantly for his recovery. During Evan's coma, we see flashbacks of the horrors of Vietnam, and we learn of psychotic troop member Slisko (MICHAEL J. ARONIN) of the Corps... who attempts to slice open a completely naked local 'Nam prostitute while she is strapped to the bed. Anyway, when Evans finally awakes from his coma, he finds his old commander... Major Dundee (RICHARD ROUNDTREE) waiting for him with an assignment. It seems that Evans crazy old military nemesis Slisko has fallen into a life of murder, drug dealing, and illegal arms sales. Not much of a surprise. So the FBI sends out both Evans and Dundee to stop Slisko once and for all and at the same time settle an old score. Z-Grade magic done only the way the Italian exploitation film industry can do it.

  2. Congrats on that one! Yeah, second chances are cool! I actually wrote to him once and had him find a tape for me that I had lost out on. xD

Bikini girls with machine guns

Yep, this video is from the one they're watching in Tarantino's JACKIE BROWN. It's an awesome video; I mean all it is is a bunch of scantly clad sexy babes with automatic guns going: "This is an AK47" pow pow pow pow - Haha. Absolutely fantastic! xD.
