Editorial Reviews

War is Hell... and to carry out his top secret mission, one soldier will make a deal with the Devil.

Italian frightmaster Antonio Margheriti (Cannibal Apocalypse) turned to the horrors of war for this explosive action film set near the end of the Vietnam conflict.

Following the grisly suicide of his shellshocked friend, Captain Harry Morris (David Warbeck, The Beyond) accepts one final mission: to go behind enemy lines and destroy a Viet Cong radio tower broadcasting anti-American propaganda to US troops.

Aided by a ragtag squadron of commandos and shadowed by a beautiful photojournalist (Tisa Farrow, Zombie), Morris carries out his search and destroy mission with extreme prejudice, straight into the heart of darkness.

Made in the wake of the success of THE DEER HUNTER and shot on Philippine locations left over from APOCALYPSE NOW, THE LAST HUNTER is an over-the-top example of Italian exploitation filmmaking at its most shameless... and unforgettable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Apocalypse Spaguettini July 15, 2007
Format:DVD
The late David Warbeck leads the way in the one and only TRUE Apocalypse Now ripoff made by the great masters of gore...the Italians!!!Filmed after the success of Apocalypse, this "Ultra Gory" spaguetti copycat of Francis Ford Coppola's Vietman war extravaganza is a real treat in its own way. A US mayor is sent to destroy an NVA communist radio broadcast that's being playing suversive brainwashing massages to the American G.I's... telling them to desert because the U.S.A. government are sending them to get killed for no reason and to fight a useless and cruel war that does not belong to them (this actually happened!!!). The gory action starts as soon as you play the movie. You will find great "spaguetti-western" style action scenes, lotz of ultra disturbing gore by horror fx master Gianetto de Rossi (Lucio Fulci's favorite!), insane and out of control shocking violence, cheesy dialogue and a storyline almost identical to Apocaypse Now...but without the huge overbudget. This very cool and entertaining cult flick stand out as one of the best spaguetti-vietnam movies of the late seventies-early eighties. If you are familiar with the once great Italian horror/action genre, then this will please your appetite for blood and gore. Some of the jungle and helicopter action is very good and so are the sets. Trust me, so you should not be disappointed...remember that this was made by the Italians...so this is CULT!!!. If you are a true fan of the spaguetti genre...this will bring a big smile on your face!.

Not a movie to take seriusly... just a fun, beer in hand jungle gorefest!.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Horror, The Horror January 9, 2008
Format:DVD
During the Viet Nam War, a cynical army captian is given a top secret mission that takes him up river into the jungle. He is accompanied on this grim journey by a group of disillusioned soldiers who are picked off one by one by a seemingly unstoppable enemy. As the captain nears his target, it becomes more and more obvious that his mission has turned into a battle for his very soul.

If the above sounds like the plot of Apocalypse Now, that's because it is. However, it's also the plot of Antonio Margherti's the Last Hunter and, while Apocalypse Now is definitely the better film of the two, the Last Hunter is a lot shorter and a lot more fun. Antonio Margherti was skilled director who just happened to specialize in ripping off other films. Here, he rips off both the Deer Hunter and Apocalypse Now and he does so with enough style and chutzpah that the Last Hunter becomes a rare rip-off that can actually stand on its own as an entertaining movie.
Jettisoning the mythological underpinnings of Apocalypse Now, The Last Hunter instead supplies wall-to-wall action (all of which is very imaginatively staged by Margherti) and enough quirky moments to make this film far more memorable than anyone could have possibly expected. The film's surprisingly dark finale actually carries a bit of a sting with it.

This is, of course, an Italian production from the Golden Age of Italian B-movies and there's a lot here that the dedicated fans of these uniquely warped films will appreciate. The Last Hunter features David Warbeck (of Lucio Fulci's The Beyond and the Black Cat) in the lead and, as always, he gives a strong and likable performance. Tisa Farrow brings the same oddly endearing blankness to her role as a photojournalist that she previously brought to Fulci's Zombi.

2.0 out of 5 stars not great February 3, 2008
Format:DVD
If youre expecting a lot of gore and violence then dont buy this film as it is very tame .It is directed by antonio magherti - the man who directed cannibal apocalypse (which is a great film) so i had high expectations, unfortunately these werent met. Worth a look and quite enjoyable but nothing special .......
