This violent film follows the miserable life of a miserable Vietnam vet as it goes from awful, to disgusting, to almost ludicrous (the life and the film). First the vet helps slaughter the inhabitants of a village during the war and then he is captured and tortured for two years. After that scenario, he winds up in a low-life neighborhood in New York owing drug money, saddled with a chunky, nagging, ugly wife and a little baby who inherited his mother's genes. One gory scene follows another until the climax which is meant to be the shocker that caps it all. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a true American original, a portrait painted in the scum, sweat, and the fears of both its subject and its supporters."
‑ Bill Gibron, PopMatters
