2.0 out of 5 stars Hilariously awful and awfully hilarious 29 May 2008
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Given the tragic circumstances of his untimely death, not to mention the deep respect I have for his father, I feel sort of bad about denigrating one of Brandon Lee's films (albeit, one of his earliest films). Unfortunately, the fact of the matter is that Laser Mission exists solely to be made fun of, as it's such a hilariously bad movie. The plot barely holds the whole thing together, the acting is pretty weak all across the board, the dialogue is so cheesy that that the film should come with a warning label for lactose-intolerant viewers, the special effects don't exactly blow you away, and even the music proves to be highly annoying. Obviously, I really have no choice but to give the film a low rating, but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy the heck out of watching it - this thing is chock full of unintentional hilarity.

Brandon Lee plays Michael Gold, a secret agent-type guy who really isn't very good at his job. Apparently, all of the CIA's spies were at a meeting or something because the Americans hire Gold to go down and try to talk a Cuban scientist (played by "well-known Cuban actor" Ernest Borgnine) into bringing his knowledge of advanced laser technology to America. Gold screws that up pretty quickly but manages to beg his way into a second chance with the guys at the American Embassy. With Professor Braun (Borgnine) now missing, Gold seeks out help from the professor's daughter Alissa (Debi Monahan, who's about as Cuban as Marilyn Monroe) - and I must say that the disguised manner in which he first contacts her is not to be missed (nor is the somewhat revealing dress Monahan wears throughout most of the movie - without it, there would be absolutely nothing worth looking at in the entire film). Even the setting of this film is problematic.

3.0 out of 5 stars We all take jobs that we regret at a later date. 12 Nov 2009
Format:DVD
As a struggling actor, you don't get to choose your work, you take what you are offered. This is what happened to Brandon. He was too good for this film, but he did seem to be enjoying himself throughout, not taking it too seriously as he obviously realised how bad it was. He is the one shining element in this awful film. Bad script, bad story, bad acting from everyone except Brandon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Laser Mission 27 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Terrible film quality, terrible sound quality, terrible acting. This film is meant to be a serious film but turned out like a comedy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Laser Mission 27 July 2012
By Steve
Format:DVD
I first came accross this film many years ago just before The Crow was released. I had a VHS copy that had the alternate title of Soldier Of Fortune.
At that time of my life i actually loved the movie which really does play like a video game. It had gun fights, chases, and cheesy humour and everything that a thirteen year old would appreciate.
In 2012 though, now i am much older, i do not have the same fondness for the film as i once did. It is heavily dated and the plot holes are much more obvious.
However apart from a few flaws the film is still a lot of fun. Brandon Lee looks like he knows he is not in a great film but has a great time anyway.
The main problemfor me is the appaling DVD. The transfer is awful and much worse than my old VHS copy. On closer inspection, the cover art looks like it has been photocopied from a magazine or printed from the internet and worst of all the movie is actually missing some of the violence that was present in my video version.
So, do not buy this Elstree Hill Entertainment edition, instead save your money and watch the film on You Tube.

3.0 out of 5 stars Soldier of Fortune 2 Nov 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a fairly generic action film, made slightly notable by being the last one of the few films made by Brandon Lee before The Crow and his untimely death on the set. Lee plays a mercenary, which also gave the name for a previous release of the film on VHS, Soldier of Fortune, who has been tasked with contacting and rescuing a scientist (Ernest Borgnine) who has invented some overpowered killing device (basically a massive laser, hence the DVD title). Conventional action movie hijinks ensue, with some high points - such as the comic routine at the start of the second mission, and some conventional stupidity, such as bad guys that run up over open ground to the guy firing an assault rifle so he can do some karate moves to break up the gun play.

There are a number of attempts at humour injected into the mix, particularly in the first half of the film, but most of it falls flat for me - his partner in crime, the scientists daughter, gets some of the better material but it is patchy. The continued incompetence of his opponents also tends to make Lee seem lucky rather than a particularly competent mercenary, and this is even aside the comic relief duo that is trying to track him down. Everyone also oscillates between being exceptionally ruthless and giving the opponent a sporting chance, which is often an issue in these sorts of action films, but it was more jarring than usual.

Overall it is okay as long as you don't very high expectations.
