Movie: Warbus (1986)
2011, rewind and don’t stop till you reach 1986. Ever watched an action movie where the heroine ignores the hero and cops off with a middle aged man? Or a movie where the hero has to use reading glasses to operate a radio? How about a main character who suffers from epilepsy for no reason at all? This 1986 movie has it all, to the extent that the action scenes get in the way of the quirks.
The plot concerns a small group of people who are forced to flee from their base (which happens to be a Mission) in an old school bus when the VC launches a vicious assault upon it. Along the way they are joined by a group of three battle hardened American Special Forces soldiers and together they desperately fight to make it to safety.
On the surface Warbus appears to be a standard boring Italian Vietnam war flick, but in actual fact, it’s so hilarious.
