A group of hard-bitten mercenaries rids a Latin American drug-producing island of its greedy dictator and his CIA overlord. Lively, enjoyable mercenary hokum designed as a throwback to 1980s hard actioners, getting a lot of mileage out of its all-star cast of over-the-hill action stars, purposefully basic script and tongue-in-cheek repartee; everyone involved had a hoot doing it and it translates so well that you overlook the flaws.
