Felsberg (Fernando Rey) and his second in command Horner (Jack Taylor) are trying to track down notorious Nazi scientist Mengele (Howard Vernon), when one of their field agents, Marc (Antonio Mayans), rather by chance finds a trace of him in Paraguay, where he frees a girl, Eva (Suzan Andrews), from his clutches. Marc soon enough drums up a team to attack Mengele's stronghold, a fortress, consisting of a communications expert, an acrobat, a martial arts expert and a trained killer, but Felsberg doesn't want them to attack until he has positive proof that Mengele is indeed Mengele, so they have to break into the fortress to find something with his fingerprints on it - in this case an ashtray - and while they are there, they overhear a conversation about Mengele's plans to take over South America in the name of the Fourth Reich by installing Nazi dictators in each and every country.

For some reason, Felsberg then decides they need someone on the inside, and Eva volunteers to return to Mengele, claiming she has been kidnapped. Then, Marc and his tiny group of professionals plus Horner attack, mow down all of Mengele's henchmen who cross their paths with machine guns and manage to free Eva once more (why again did she go back in the first place ?) - but the attack comes with a price, since some of them let their lives and even Marc and Eva are ultimately shot dead by Mengele's second-in-command Wolfgang (Christopher Mitchum). Horner in the meantime goes after the main man himself, but when Mengele finds himself cornered, he blows himself up and the whole fortress with him - an explosion which Horner miraculously survives.

And though Mengele could not be brought to justice just like Felsberg demanded, at least the world is freed of a monster like him ...

 

An action film, Rambo-style (meaning lots of shootouts with machine guns and similar gratuituous violence), done the Eurociné way - meaning it's done on the dirt-cheap: The action seriously lacks proper stuntmen and proper pyrotechnics, the martial arts sequences look especially ridiculous, direction and camerawork can best be described as sloppy, and somehow a very limited number of supporting players make the whole shootout scenario less than impressive. That all said, Commando Mengele is sort of endearing in its shortcomings, but you probably have to really have to be a bad movie lover (like me) to really appreciate this.
