Not the best Hammer film I have ever seen

What a deceit. I expected much more. I know that Hammer film was not specialized in war and adventure movies, but they gave us little gems such as Camp on Blood Island, Terror of the Tongs, Yesterday's Enemy, and so on...And Michael Carreras is a good director - and producer - too. I don't understand why he has done such a flat, uninspired, talkative, dull routine drama about help to the refugee from Red China.

I almost got asleep. Nevertheless, the photography is pretty effective and the 2.35 format restores some brightness to this tepid story. A tale that we have seen a hundred times before. And often far better than this.

Richard Basehart is not enough to save the movie. Sorry...

But you can try it. Who knows...
