Blond and indifferently muscled, Zachary Oberzan does not particularly resemble Sylvester Stallone. Nor does a cramped black-box theater much recall the forests of Washington State.

Oberzan is apparently obsessed with the flick and sweatily recounts every famously violent scene in this story of a troubled Green Beret and the small-town cops who menace him.
