Not really all that great.. very formulaic and boring
1 August 2008 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I can see that most of the other reviewers here really like this movie, but I can't really understand why, because this movie is extremely slow-moving and full of clichés all the way through, and has a really unlikeable leading man, who just wants to drink and smoke all the time, and likes to "take charge" of his men, and doesn't even flinch when his men (or women) get killed because of him dragging them out into the field.

Quite a lot of the scenes in this movie consists of people walking a lot. The final scene has a VERY lengthy sequence where a woman walks around an abandoned campsite for what seems like 10 minutes!! All she does is just walk around and look, run a bit, and stroll back and forth.. imagine that for at least 5 minutes near the climax of any movie! This movie is a total time-waster.

Only good thing about this movie are the following: My VHS-tape is surprisingly in widescreen, which was a big plus.

The two women (Esperanto and Betsy) are hot.

Fabio Testi is in this movie, and he kicks ass as usual.

Well, that's about it. This movie is so full of clichés, truly a horrible piece of war-glorifying trash - but without blood and gore, so you could actually see this with kids too, except that they'd probably be too bored to bother finish watching it.

4/10 - one star for Testi, two for each of the women, and one for the widescreen format (and the fast-forward button on my remote).
