Its nonstop action as Gunar and his elite group wage war to defeat the deadly opposition at any cost.

Customer Reviews

As a 90's feel good man's film this one rates up there.
The Movie Guy
Dolphs performance is first rate and the rest of the cast are excellent even the annoying Cockney bad guy who although was cheesy he was good to watch.
O. G. Jolliffe
Great location shots, good directing, good script, good acting and top notch action sequences.

There is only one reason for me to buy this DVD & it is because Catherine Bell (who portrays LtCol. Sarah "Mac" MacKenzie) of "JAG" fame graces this movie with her presence.She portrays Grace, a (Wo)Men of War", one of Dolph's mercenaries.Catherine Bell is great in this movie, I just loved how BUTCH she was with short hair & muscles, kicking ... & swinging the big guns around.So if you are a Cat Bell fan, this is definately a "must-have" for your collection.Also, for all you "JAG" fans, Trevor Goddard who portrayed Australian Navy lawyer Mic Brumby (who Sarah MacKenzie was supposed to marry, thank God that didn't happen!) plays Keefer in this movie.

At first glance, Men of War doesn't seem like much: It looks like yet another low-profile action film from the King of B-Movies, Dolph Lundgren. Good for a few laughs perhaps, but certainly nothing worth repeat viewing. But this notion is quickly dispelled upon closer examination. The first clue to the film's surprising quality is a screenwriting credit attributed to indie filmmaker, John Sayles (Passion Fish, Ghost Dog). Known for his intelligent and character-driven dramas, Sayles' writing imparts Men of War with far more subtlety, wit and meaning than one would expect from a direct-to-video action film. Things just get better from there. There's the diverse and talented cast that includes BD Wong, Catherine Bell (TV's JAG), Thomas Gibson (TV's Dharma & Greg), and Tiny Lister (The Fifth Element). The actors have clearly been chosen for their ability and suitability for the roles rather than because they're the next "hot young thing". This high quality is maintained by the director and cinematographer. I've never heard of director Perry Lang, but based on his tight, visually-interesting work here, he certainly deserves to be given another film to helm. The whole production has an extremely polished and high-quality feel to it. Indeed, the major failing of previous home video editions of Men of War was that they were in pan & scan, thus cropping off the film's beautiful widescreen cinematography. The DVD edition finally corrects this oversight and allows the wild action scenes and gorgeous South Seas locations to be seen in their original 2.35:1 widescreen glory. While the DVD is a bit light on features, one needs to consider that this is literally the only widescreen DVD of the film in the entire WORLD.Read more ›

The story is standard, Lundgren and a group of other mercenaries are hired by two executives to go to a remote island near Thailand to convince the local to sell their lands. Why ? Because apparently there are a big deposit of bird and bat's droppings in the caves that can produce nitrogen. Off course, at the end, Lundgren ended up helping the local.
The acting and direction is good, much better than Lundgren's later movies and you can see a glimpse of Charlotte Lewis's beautiful body. The DVD's picture quality is very good, bright and sharp. The jungle scenery presented beautifully on the DVD. I happened to watch this after Emerald Forest DVD and this one looks much better. I would have given it 5 stars if Disney bother to give 5.1 sound to it. But overall, a must buy of Dolph Lundgren fans or action fans in general.

I think this is a great action movie, but my husband says its too mushy for a Dolph flick. Dolph's character (Nick) is a mercenary who is hired by 2 businessmen to put together a small band of men to force some islanders to move off their island. He puts together a group of tough misfits and heads off for the island. Of course once Nick meets the islanders, he has second thoughts about his mission and decides to defend the island from his employers. His employers go out and hire another mercenary. Of course this guy and Nick had been in the military together and they hate each other; action ensues. The fighting unit that Nick puts together is very entertaining and very tough. One member of the small army is a woman who is just as tough as the men, she is great to watch. There is one guy in the film with an Australian accent whose acting is very annoying. There is nothing new in this film, its all very predictable but the action is great, the scenery is great, Dolph's acting is good, and his costars are good (except the Australian guy). I highly recommend it.

Don't have anything bad to say, Dolph Lundgren did himself proud with this one. Great location shots, good directing, good script, good acting and top notch action sequences. Probably the highest production standards a Dolph Lundgren production will ever see again.

A COMMANDO [DOLPH LUNDGREN] ASSEMBLES A CRACK TEAM AND THEY TRAVEL TO A PACIFIC ISLAND TO SECURE IT FOR BUSINESS PURPOSES. GOOD ACTING AND SUPERB ACTION MAKE IT BETTER THAN MANY OTHER DIRECT TO VIDEO ACTION MOVIES AND IT MAKES IT BETTER THAN ANY OTHER DOLPH LUNDGREN MOVIE THAT CAME BEFORE OR AFTER THIS. UNFORTUNATELY FOR DOLPH, JUST ABOUT EVERY MOVIE HE MADE AFTER THIS TURNED OUT TO BE TRULY HORRIBLE. BUT FOR ALL ACTION FANS, THIS IS AN UNEXPECTED TREAT!

This was a movie I owned on VHS and recently found again on DVD. Most will think "Dolf Lungren? It must be a bad combat film." but it isn't. This is a well thought out story with great characters. BD Wong stars opposite Dolf, and also delivers one of the best performances of his career.
Because it didn't do well in the box office when it first came out, this movie, because of it's star, has been overlooked. It is a great find for movie watchers.
