A group of elderly veterans of foreign wars is going to have a drink in the bar on the occasion of the birthday of one of them – even though the birthday boy is against the celebration, he is still glad to see old friends. Suddenly a girl runs into the institution, and behind her two aggressive thugs. Having stood up for the protection of a stranger, grandfathers kill their pursuers, which draw the wrath of a local huckster, in whom the girl stole a shipment of drugs. Now the crazy addicts are beginning to besiege the bar, and veterans are not averse to shaking antiquity and are not going to give up without a fight.

Somehow, fighting veterans gathered in a bar for veterans, and let’s trump each other with their adventures for a glass of another. One, seemingly the most important:
Yes, about ten years ago I was on a business trip to Pandora, we drove the local blue-skinned Papuans there, and then literally blindly dealt with a gang of housekeepers.
ÂAlso an achievement for me, says the most battered. In due time, I myself kicked the very demon knight night and waved it with a tough nut.
ÂTryndi, tryndi, the most business man in a suit wedged in. Is it weak to get into a cage with Bolo Young, or to stretch a shadow hunter in a skyscraper with a blond-haired cyborg? ItÂs the same.
ÂAnd IÂll tell you this, the smallest shot up. Somehow we dealt with one musician patlat, and then he returned with a raven on his shoulder from the other world.
ÂItÂs good to bother, the healthiest interrupted. I once sat, just as it is now with you, in the dashing tavern “Twisted Tits”, nothing portended trouble. And after sunset so much evil spirits that with these very hands they had to fold the bosco. IÂm deja vu, as it were, even today something bad happened.
It was as if a veteran had knocked over and a young girl ran into the tavern with a bag at the ready, and behind her there were healthy ambulas, one of whom nearly doubled one of the visitors with an ax. But you wonÂt take our old men in a snap, they werenÂt taken aback, gathered their strength and started crumbling countless hordes of drug addicts …
Another greeting from the era of video shows, or a tribute to the young director of the cinema of his youth. All of us were sent back to that time, and a simple plot where power is opposed to strength, and cool (albeit in the past) heroes, straightforward villains and spectacular villains, grainy shooting, an atmospheric soundtrack akin to CarpenterÂs, and familiar faces of that same movie era. If all of the above is close to you, then viewing the “Veterans …” may not be for you a stupid pastime. A low budget picture more than overlaps with the enthusiasm of the director.
Those who are tuned for comedy thrash may be disappointed; there is no black humor as such, except perhaps the elements of irony. The atmosphere is quite disturbing, which is greatly facilitated by the musical accompaniment, which is beyond praise here. The soundtrack is akin to the pulse of a wounded soldier, now it anxiously jumps, then slowly subsides.
In general, the casting is happy, here you are not Danny Trejo with Danny Glover, who have not come out of such paintings in recent years, and not the pensioners’ league from the films of Alexander Kuritsyn. Before us, with the exception of the more demanded Lang, are really rare actors who have contributed to genre films. Sadler, Cove, Patrick Kelly, Fred Williamson, almost unchanged from “From Dusk Till Dawn.” Guys do not fire, but they look harmonious in the frame.
Technically, the film is also made according to old-fashioned patterns. Dark shooting and camera work in general, refer to the previous joint work of the director and cameraman – ÂBliss. Instead of computer special effects, a high-quality props that add realism to numerous scenes of violence that are directly relished by the director. Skulls literally crumble into dust, limbs fly around.
There is a certain charm in such films from which you expect nothing and which do not advertise from every pillar, because it is devoid of bias and a burden of unjustified expectations. Not a masterpiece of course, even among category B films, but the elements of nostalgia and the directorÂs efforts do not cause a desire to spit after watching.
