The first of the 80's war action genre?
Can this this movie be considered the first of the 80's-style war action genre? When I watch this, I am reminded of later 80's war action movies, like Rambo II, Commando, and some of the Chuck Norris movies. In particular, the introductory scene and the last battle scene remind me of those films, with similar pyrotechnics, noise, and gun play.
Can anyone think of any films using that style of battle scene before "The Dogs of War"?
