I liked this throwback action horror film quite a bit, it's straight to the point and moves rather quickly, this film has elements of intense violence and gore, but the more you watch this film, you overlook it, due to the performances of the actors, they make you care about them surviving thru the siege at their VFW, This film will remind you of similar movies of the past, assault of precinct 13, the wild bunch, and rio bravo, and that is what make this film good, the director did a good job of capturing a certain retro vibe with color tones at night and the grimy gritty look during the day, the film score sounds like something John Carpenter would have composed, added even more retro flavor , so if your in the mood for pretty decent weekend flick, look no further this one is good.

Fred (Stephen Lang) is an old man and a ex war veteran. Today is his birthday! He and his fellow war buddies are getting together for some heavy drinking and talking about the good old days when they were on the battlefield. They decided to meet up at a bar also known as the VFW (VFW - the Veterans of Foreign Wars). But right near the celebration, a young girl has just lost her sister to drugs. The young girl decides to take vengeance by stealing all the drugs from the man responsible for her sister's death. The young girl becomes wanted by many drug users (as in drug users who like mutated punk) and the girl goes into the VFW bar seeking help. Soon it's up to the old war heroes to take ground and protect the young girl.
VFW has a R18+ rating. To my surprise, this is due to both action and horror in some elements. The level of violence, blood, guts, gore and foul language was something unexpected, but it reminded me of something we haven't seen since From Dusk Till Dawn.
But what makes VFW different as a film are the multiple details that only gave me joy. The cast members are a prime element. Actor Stephen Lang is also joined by William Sadler, Fred Williamson, Martin Kove and other favourite old school actors. The outcome for the each of their characters (except for one of them) are all unexpected and unpredictable. The interaction between all cast members is fun, light-hearted and rather humorous as they band together for the fight of their lives using whatever they find within the old bar.
The soundtrack also gets a big thumbs up. Like something we've heard in a John Carpenter film, this soundtrack brings a funky, synth sounding musical score which is fantastic and adds a great touch. Even the filming style of VFW feels like an old and dirty film which gives a true 80s type of vibe... and I do love the 80s.
Overall, VFW is loaded with lots of good brainless entertainment. The action, violence, gore, humour, general 80s vibe and a fun synth soundtrack all adds up to enjoyment. This film is simply a guilty pleasure and I had lots of fun viewing it. Any negatives I have are minor and generally forgiven. 7.9/10 - Walkden Entertainment
Saw this without watching the trailer n was pleasantly surprised.The poster with the old fellas with various weapons in their hands were sufficient to entice me into seeing this film.
We have Martin Kove, Stephen Lang, William Sadler, David Patrick Kelly, Fred Williamson n George Wendt.
The plot has been done umpteenth no of times but that shud not deter u from seeing this transgressively violent n deeply '70s style thriller.
The film's pacing is taut, performances r good, the gore is over the top and the only drawback is the film's lighting and cinematography, maybe the budget, but then again this shud not deter u from seeing this film.
Some of the scenes r purposely grimy with a worn-out look.Few attack scenes r shot in a very fast forward way with bad lighting which makes it hard to distinguish what's happening.The gore effects, the camaraderie between the oldies, taut pacing n the action compensates the minor flaws.
Fans of Rio Bravo, Night Of The Living Dead, Assault On Precinct 13, Straw Dogs, Cyborg n Mulberry St. will definitely enjoy this low budget gem.
P.S. Watch out for the antlers kill scene n the knee to face smashing one.By the way William Sadler needs to lose some weight n his puffy face but it was good to see him in a major role, that too with a chainsaw n driving Deuce and a Half straight into the enemy's face.
