Exciting, tense, and amazingly sexxy even 30 years later
5 July 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This movie would be a real hoot even 30 years after it came out. DVD for a restored copy would be great. From my view one of the best of the so-called sexploitation films of its era. And unlike most, the uniforms used are actually authentic to that period. And great looking, too!
