A tough mission for a special squad of G.I. Joe's.
8 September 2001 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Edward Cahn directs this very low budget war yarn. Mike Connors leads a special squad assigned to destroy top intelligence papers in the Philippines. The mission is almost suicidal, because the Japanese have set up a HQ in the small building housing the hidden documents.

Familiar stock footage is meshed with this spotty script. No masterpiece, but a quickie war flick worth watching. Diverse cast of characters that include: Bing Russell, Russ Bender and John Ashley. Ashley always seems to over act, but then there is Jewell Lain that shows very little skills as a reporter/love interest. Look for Sammee Tong, who played the butler on TV's "Bachelor Father". Lock and load.
