WWII Communist propaganda film.
14 February 2015 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

When I was growing up in Sarajevo during those times I never thought that this film in the later years will be called Communist propaganda. It really is that, just that, good action Yugoslav Communist propaganda. It is really popular in China. I am not sure why, but it is. Even today Chinese tourists come to Sarajevo to visit filming sets.

As far as plot goes it is a typical WWII action film. Nothing that particular or special about it. Yugoslavia produced number of these during those years. Pity these countries left from Yugoslavia do not have the budgets or capabilities to produce even better film then those. But film industry has changed a lot over the years, and with break up of Yugoslavia, things changed dramatically.
