He wasn't being recruited; he was being UNLEASHED!
Heavy Weapon tells the story of Vietnam veteran John Magnum, who left the elite Special Forces because he was filled with guilt after the tragic loss of his entire battalion while under his command. Magnum just wanted a quiet life and to be left alone. But now, 10 years later, his former Commanding Officer, Colonel Deckard, has come knocking. Col. Deckard has tracked Magnum down to inform him that a small group of POWs - captured during the war - have been found, and are being used as slave labor for a drug cartel in Costa Rica, and he wants Magnum to provide his skills to help him free the them, but Magnum refuses. It’s not his battle anymore.
Only days later, Magnum is approached by his old friend SGT Alonzo Richter, the only survivor of Magnum's lost battalion. Richter presents Magnum with a surprising video tape revealing that Deckard and his crew have been captured, and are being tortured then killed one-by-one at the hands of a ruthless drug lord. Before the tape ends, Colonel Deckard makes a plea for help from Magnum. He knows he can't let any more of his friends get killed and vows to wage his own personal war to bring Deckard and his men home!
Heavy Weapon is a must read for any action fan who craves for more great action movies of the 80s.
