War Dog (1987)

War Dog (1987)
aka The Assassination Team

A man looks for his brother who went MIA in Vietnam and uncovers a conspiracy of super soldiers.

I've seen other Swedish 80s action movies, but those were dubbed over by Americans.  God bless them for trying to sound American, but of course it came out Minnesotan.

Despite the goofy accents and schlubby heroes we've got some decent action scenes, thanks to the constant gunfire and enormous squibs.  Highlights for me include shot up children, a corpse on a water slide, and a genuinely awesome vehicular combat scene that rivals Road Warrior or Raider of the Lost Ark.

The close captioning people at Amazon are just taking the piss now, with sound cues of (fleshy thunks) and (gun bloops)
