Trivia

Screenwriter Donald Glut wrote the film's screenplay, but withheld the last third from producer-director Kenneth Hartford (aka Kenneth Herts) when he wasn't paid. Rather than pay, Hartford opted to write his own ending, which explains the film's bizarre final half hour. See more »

Goofs

The castle where Jack is being kept prisoner is supposed to be on an island in a lake in the middle of the Arabian desert. Besides the fact that there are no lakes in the middle of the Arabian desert, when the castle (stock footage) is shown, it is several hundred feet up on a cliff, no lake is visible anywhere, and it is surrounded by (obviously European) mountains.

The socio-political struggle for gender equality in the midst of the arms race.
7 April 1999 | by (boise, ID) – See all my reviews

Hell Squad is the story of a group of Las Vegas showgirls come commandos sent to rescue a diplomat's son in what is truly the world's first "art" film. This beautifully made film has a stellar cast portraying multi-dimensional characters of such depth as the suspicious tiger-owning arab, the conflicted millionaire, and the large-breasted commandos.

The story itself deals with such important socio-political issues as the arms race, gender equality, water conservation, and animal cruelty. For example; a tiger's tail is stamped on by the villain's angry foot; these busty dancers prove that they can infiltrate the enemy with the best of em', while being socially responsible by bathing together because of a water shortage; and our damsel, the diplomat's son, is bound by shackles no one can see, representing the invisible threat of the neutron bomb (where did that elephant go?).

Finally, as the startling ending asserts, nothing is as it seems. The final scene is a shocker unlike anything you've witnessed since the glory days of Scooby Doo. For fast-paced, stimulating film-making at its finest, do yourself a favor and find Hell Squad!
