The Mafia hires a rogue army general [who happens to HAVE an army] who almost flawlessly executes a Bolan Trap. Emphasis on “almost”.
Plus, there’s a plot to kidnap the President of the United States for a Billion dollars in gold.

I guess if this was food, I’d consider it a soda or an energy drink. Tastes good, feels good but a steady intake of such will hurt you.
So Mack gets suckered in by an old Vietnam buddy who has gone rogue. Fake military making Mack think he has crossed the line and killed soldiers who are just doing their job. A psychological tactic that comes this — close to working. Thankfully, Mack’s friends in the Mafia and the Government give him the heads up and so he can start thinking tactically again.
There is just so much awesome mano-e-mano gun battles that it makes my Manly Ego growl with delight.
Please excuse me as I go punch out some walls now…
