The third in a triptych of Italian jungle combat adventures that includes Commando Leopard and Code Name: Wild Geese from Euro-trash movie kingpin Antonio Margheriti - The Commander features Lewis Collins doing what he does best, leading a group of fearless mercenaries into the green hell of a South Asian jungle in order to protect a data disc full of secrets.
The acting is so terrible, including Lee Van-Cleef's camp nostril flaring cheesiness. Even an experienced middle aged Lewis Collins could not save it with his loutish charm. They did well on a budget to show the effect of say a burning truck, without going to the expense of burning it & not using toy models. The general ambiance is of a home made Blue Peter production.
