The Exploder Trilogy is a trilogy of films in the GTA III Era made from 1984 to 1992, starring Jack Howitzer as Tim, a crazed ex-Marine who is recruited by the US Government periodically for various tasks such as search-and-rescue missions, and working undercover as a special ed teacher.
The first two films Evacuator (1984) and Exploder: Evacuator Part II (1986) mainly focus on Tim returning to Vietnam for rescue purposes and to kill Communists. The third film Special Needs Cop (1992) features a far different story, with Tim flying out of Cambodia and back to the United States early in the film to teach a pre-school for handicapped children.
- The first two films seem to be parodies of Sylvester Stallone's Rambo Films. While Evacuator parodies Wikipedia:Rambo: First Blood Part II, whilst Exploder: Evacuator Part II seems to borrow elements of Wikipedia: Rambo III: Rambo III such as excessive body count.
