Trivia

The war ended before filming was completed. Because of this the producers decided to rewrite the script to include references to the atomic bomb, including a side plot involving a kidnapped American nuclear physicist. See more »

Goofs

In the final battle scene, Steve Ross and Han-Soo are fighting off the Japanese troops armed with sub-machine guns. Both these guns appear to be Thompson sub-machine guns which it would have been impossible to obtain in Japan. The only Japanese submachine gun was the Type 100 model which was of a markedly different appearance to the Thompson. See more »

i swear i remember this film with a different title
16 September 2002 | by (chatsworth,ca) – See all my reviews

I swear when I watched this movie as a child it was called " I Was a Jap for the F.B.I." Does anyone remember that or am I thinking of something else? I remember that the main character undergoes plastic surgery and the only way the Japanese are able to discover him is by watching films of old American college football games when he played and noticed he had a habit of twiddling his thumbs which he is still doing during a secret meeting with the Japanese.
