War Pigs Movie Review

Luke Goss stars in War Pigs

Officers and Orders

IMDb Plot: A rag tag unit of misfits known as the War Pigs must go behind enemy lines to exterminate Nazis by any means necessary (in War Pigs, directed by Ryan Little.)

"Everyone calls 'em the War Pigs. Must be a good story." Not so fast Dolph (Lundgren.) Mr. Ivan Drago does his part (still convincing at 57) as does lead actor Luke Goss; but the rest of the cast fails to inspire... especially Mickey Rourke, who looks hopelessly out-of-place (perhaps even cartoonish) as a CO in a floppy hat. Looks good on paper; but too many ultra close-ups and not enough action. Couldn't we do better than, "Take that, you dirty Kraut bastard," and "Hang in there kid," uttered by a fellow soldier about to be hanged? Evidently not.
