Disclaimer; I received this movie for free in exchange for my review and my honest opinion, I have not been compensated in any way.
Raising 2 boys in the 80′s & 90′s, my sons wanted to be superheros and the only thing back then was DVD’s, GIJoe toys, He man, etc. It would have been cool to have this Delta Zoo DVD, it is perfect for any child that loves war games.
In the 1990s, every boy around the world – even amidst cultural embargos – was glued to VHS karate action films and dreamt of being a superhero. The fight for Lithuanian independence in 1991 gave a selective group of young men the chance to do just that: be heroes, as members of a Special Forces Unit aimed at countering Soviet aggression. Most members were given an animal nickname, hence the unit was known as the Zoo. From parachute jumps and hand-to-hand combat training to securing the KGB building in Vilnius, at the beginning of the end of the USSR, this playful documentary tells the hidden story of the first-ever Lithuanian Special Forces: a courageous, impassioned, and youthful endeavor against the powers that once were.
