Kino Lorber's PLATOON LEADER trains SOLDIER BOYZ (review)

AMERICAN NINJA Michael Dudikoff headlines this pairing of action flicks from the eighties and nineties.  In PLATOON LEADER, West Point graduate Jeff Knight is dropped right into the leadership of a Vietnam platoon and goes from inexperienced by-the-book placeholder to battle-hardened leader in this gritty Cannon production.  In SOLDIER BOYZ, retired major Howard Toliver is working as a California Youth Authority counselor when he is approached to retrieve an heiress whose UN supply plane was shot down over the Vietnamese jungle.  He takes with him a group of juvenile lifers with nothing to lose and everything to gain.
