Quite minimalistic mystery, the mystery is obvious...
10 March 2001 | by (Staffs, England) – See all my reviews

But the movie is still quite enjoyable. Some soldiers from Vietnam have just been released from being POWs, now they are back and safe, or are they? They are all questioned and interrogated about a secret mission which they are suspected of being involved in, it's a bit obvious what the mission was going to have involved but it kept me watching for the details. The acting was substantial, except for the German wife of one of the soldiers who had a bad accent saying 'z' instead of 'th' "Zey will kill zem".

All in all it's okay as a tv movie but not up to theatrical standards they isn't a whole lot there it all runs along fine but it just could have done with more meat to it. Also the ending just makes me feel that they had run out of money(or ideas) and just had to end the film.
