Forgettable film, notable only for the opening sequence
21 May 2002 | by (Chantilly, VA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie a long time ago and most of what I remember is that it is your standard, man starts off a heel and turns out to be a hero even if he doesn't think he is capable, plot. Dennis Weaver is a pilot during WWII, that flies anyone anywhere as long as they have money. Of course he finds out that during war, money can only go so far and he finds himself fighting a noble cause - that is, helping some Filipinos and Vera Miles, escape the Japanese. There is a scene in the beginning that has stuck with me all these years. Weaver is going to fly some rich (most likely corrupt) businessman out of the Philippines. The businessman is heading to the plane holding a briefcase full of cash, when somebody shoots him with a machine gun. As the camera does a tight close-up of his face, his eyes bulge and a small drop of blood trickles from his mouth, money from his briefcase flutters all around. This had a huge impression on me and I always think this scene best illustrates the cheapness of life. The rest of the movie doesn't even come close to being an average movie.
