Trivia

The actual World War II mission that this movie is based on was Operation Rimau which was undertaken in 1944. This was an Allied mission of Z Special Force and was similar to an earlier mission entitled Operation Jaywick which had been undertaken one year earlier in September 1943. Operation Rimau's aim was to blow-up Japanese ships with limpet mines in Singapore Harbour. See more »

You don't see often see handshakes between enemies. In this movie, you will.
10 November 1999 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Thumbs up, I say. I don't generally enjoy war movies because they can depict graphical violence. Here I am talking about movies such as Thin Red Line®, Saving Private Ryan® and the like. This movie is quite different. It includes some mild fighting and the sinking of a few ships, (oops, did I say it was mild?) but I do recommend this movie because it deals with the meaning of war. You don't see often see handshakes between enemies. In this movie, you will.
