Every once in a great while, the love for a particular piece of childhood geekery comes through so intensely that fanatic isn’t a strong enough word to explain it all.

Enter Operation: Red Retrieval, a bloody and exciting romp through the mind of Mark Cheng as he gives us the classic example of ‘playing with his toys’ in a way that any red-blooded child of the 80s can relate to.

Seriously, this flick was produced in a shoestring $2500 budget but looks like something that had serious studio backing. The cast of characters, which I’ll keep brief as I don’t want to spoil anything is: Beach Head, Snake Eyes, Roadblock, and a reeeeaaaaly surprising cameo about mid-way through.
