Awful From Start to Finish
3 January 2015 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

G.I. Executioner (1971)

1/2 (out of 4)

Awful "action" film has a journalist (Tom Keena) in Singapore getting asked to investigate a Chinese scientist and soon he runs into some dirty agents and mobsters.

This film was originally released as WIT'S END but I seriously doubt too many people saw it until Troma released it over a decade later under the current title. I'm not exactly sure why Troma bothered with it but I'm going to guess that they were trying to cash-in on director Joel M. Reed's name since he became quite infamous after BLOODSUCKING FREAKS. This movie here isn't nearly in the same league and this here can only be called a flat-out disaster from start to finish.

I'm not sure where to start but I guess we'll begin with the plot, which never makes any sense and you go from one scene to the next not really knowing what's going on. There were countless times within the first 30-minutes where I was confused so I just turned my brain off but things never got any better. The editing and performances are all rather bad as is the direction, which just lacks any flair. The worst thing is that there's really no action or fun sequences to keep you entertained. The highlight is one sequence where a nude woman shoots some bad guys and we get some hilarious slow-motion deaths.

Those wanting to check out what Reed was doing before BLOODSUCKING FREAKS might want to check this out but the rest will want to stay clear.
