Storyline

In 1961, Chas and Leroy, two fun-loving military serviceman who had enough of the service, leave Panama as stowaways in a military cargo plane flying for the States. Leroy is not satisfied with compensation for his army days, so he smuggles with him one box of military supplies, which he plans to sell in the USA. He tries out a military camera on some military base they fly over and throws away the photos. In the states, an army cleaner finds photos inside the plane and alerts his superiors. They think the stowaways are communist spies and the base starts a frantic search. Written by Anonymous

Terrible
19 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie should be banned on the basis of just stupidity alone. I feel sorry for anyone who watches this mess. Reinhold, you have disappointed me. I didn't even know you had made this movie, and now wish that I had never come across it, as your image has deteriorated drastically.

The last comment was right on. Weapons and vehicles from another era, a plane with no bomb chute dropping invisible "bombs", a horrible acting job from ALL actors, and enough holes in the logic and plot to sink an aircraft carrier. I recommend gargling with razor blades rather than watch this b-rate crap. Awful. Just Awful.
