Excellent war b-movie
13 October 2002 | by (Lisbon, Portugal) – See all my reviews

Sometimes, there is a movie that few people know, but actually stays with us much time after watching it. `A Case of Honor' is a good example of that, being on of the biggest surprises I have ever had while watching such a hated b-movie.

Two reasonably known actors, but with great acting range: Tim Bottoms and John Phillip Law are the central characters on this very underrated war movie, as two of the five prisoners of war who use an airplane to escape from their captors, after being held for over ten years. With great acting and directing, this is certainly one of the best war b-movies ever made. Nick Nicholson and Steve Rogers, who actually made some other movies together, never again got the perfection of this one. Candy Raymond (most known for his Kerry character in Beresford's `Don's Party') kept this as her last appearance in a movie, which is pitiful.

It is, after all, difficult to understand the reason of such a poor rating given by the users. And OK, it's not Casablanca and Platoon is of course a better movie, but `A Case of Honor' is also interesting and an improvement over those famous MIA films. My rating: 9/10, which would certainly increase if I had the chance of watching it again.
