Entertaining, in a twisted sort-of way
20 June 2000 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in Moscow back in 1986, while on a student trip. I found it extremely entertaining. My Russian was (and still is) limited, but due to the unusual dubbing technique used (the "Americans" portrayed in the film actually spoke English, but with a voice-over translating in Russian), I was able to follow the story line pretty closely.

It was pretty amusing to see what the Soviets thought of American values back then - especially the scenes aboard an "US Navy" aircraft carrier. A news crew is aboard filming the carrier's crew during an exercise. While interviewing the captain (shown in his full dress white glory, puffing away on a cigar), in the background can be seen Heiniken Beer cans literally strewn about the deck.

The film's producers shot many of the scenes in Cuba (subbing in for the 'ol USA and the Pacific Island Command Post). This film is also notable in that it revealed the little-known fact that our armed forces (the Air Force, in particular) slap stylized name logos on just about every piece of ordinance in sight.

All in all, I am looking forward to finding this little gem on VHS - it's worth it!
