Blah b-movie to waste your time with
8 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Four Seabees land on "Gizo Island" in 1943 in order to survey it for an airstrip to be built for the U.S. during the war against the Japanese. On the island is a contingent of Japanese soldiers bored with their occupation. Eventually both sides clash. As for the island natives themselves, the film makers were apparently so cheap that they only provided for one, as embodied by Ms. Rodann. James Hong, a familiar Asian actor, plays one of the Japanese occupiers. The four Seabees are a dull lot with the possible exception of James Edwards, a capable black actor, who is wounded and fights his way back to the dinghy that brought the men to the island. Of course the fact that he's black would have eliminated him from the mission during WW2, unfortunate truth-be-told. It doesn't matter. The film is short, filled with action, yet still boring. Calvin Jackson tries to keep things lively with his music score, but this is still nothing more than a 50's TV-level war drama of little consequence or interest. And the futility of its ending is enough to make you feel you've wasted an hour watching the whole wretched thing.
