When Nick played by Michael Pergolani is updating the paper work he uses 'Liquid Paper/Correction Fluid' to alter the document. Liquid Paper was not invented until 1951, and was only really widely available in Europe from the mid 70's onwards. See more »

An entertaining action-war movie. I remember i bought this movie the in a video-store back in 1986-87. It was an old English video-version from the early 80's (from that time when video-stores in my country imported video-movies direct from England without giving them subtitles)
The movie have some similarity's with "The Dirty Dozen" and it's obvious that the film-makers got much inspiration from this great hit from the 60's. Acting and plot is not the greatest in history, but it's still a very exiting film. Not so much indifferent action-scenes here, like there are in many other movies of this type.
