Title is the catchiest aspect of “Gunblast Vodka,” a film so cheesy it belongs between the camembert and brie. French helmer and crew use scenic Poland for violent tale of a Dolph Lundgren-esque, Mossad-trained Orthodox Jew (Goetz Otto) — “Imagine a Jewish John Wayne,” suggests a U.S. government rep — who joins a dandyish Polish police inspector (Mariusz Pujszo) to rescue an American consul’s ex-wife (Angie Everhart). Proudly exploitative item revels in guns, thugs and gorgeous Central European gals, signaling a career largely on ancillary.
Said damsel, Jane, is being held captive in the Nazi-era dungeon of a castle run by snuff-film kingpin Sasha Rublov (Jurgen Prochnow), who recites scripture when he’s not auctioning off local beauties to the highest lethal bidder. “Dozens of Polish girls vanish each year,” whimpers a fellow looker-in-captivity. “But I’m not Polish — I’m American!” wails Jane. As packed with action as with idiocy, pic leads to a shoot-’em-up finish that never seems to end. French-dialogue version features dubbing of an international cast that’s as lax as the lighting and focus.
