Did You Know?

Goofs

The Soldiers carry American M-16 rifles, however every time they actually fire any blanks these have been switched to Heckler & Koch G3 carbines.

Probably because the American rifles are props incapable of firing blanks, whereas this film, being shot in Sweden, had plenty of access to G3 Carbines, which were used by the Swedish Armed Forces for many years prior to the filming of this film. See more »

Better and better.
4 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

In the end of the 1980`s,the Swedish director Mats Helge made several actionmovies for export .This actioner is about Scientists on a Island making tests on animals. Cia and a group named Animalprotector intruding the island,and then the war begins.Sounds exciting?Yes.I have seen 7 of Helges movies,and this is one of the best.Helges feeling for good action entertainment ,and for good acting,is outstanding. See this one.You will love it. Rating:5 out of 5.
