Often likened to the film The Dirty Dozen, action heavyweight Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao lead the extraordinary cast of Eastern Condors into Vietcong territory for some brutal, in-your-face action.
Given a chance for freedom, a rag tag group of Chinese prisoners are trained and sent by the U.S. Pentagon on a mission to destroy a munitions dump accidentally left by the U.S. army in Vietnam, before it gets into the hands of the Vietcong. Led by Tung Ming Sung (Sammo Hung), the troops are joined by a trio of hard-bitten female guerrilla fighters from Cambodia, and guided by a black market peddler Rat (Yuen Biao) and his insane uncle, Yeung (Haing S. Ngor). Along the way, they encounter a cruel and giggly General (Yuen Wah) and get tortured to within an inch of their lives. Even action maestro Yuen Woo Ping gets a cameo role in this exciting, adrenalin-packed, testosterone-charged bash through the jungles.
