Trivia

This World War II movie set on a Pacific Island features an American officer, a Swedish nun and a Japanese soldier. As such, this movie utilizes character set ups used previously in both Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison (1957) (a lone American soldier and lone Irish nun) and Hell in the Pacific (1968) (a lone Japanese soldier and a lone American soldier), two World War II war movies with minimal characters in isolationist Pacific Island settings.

A Good Film for a World War 2 Film Buff
30 March 2002 | by (Haddonfield, New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie a couple of times on an off-brand "network" TV and I found it pretty enjoyable to watch. I would highly recomend it to any fan of war or action/war movie IF they can't find anything better to rent or IF they happen to catch it on TV or in TV Guide. The film provides a descent balance of action and suspence and a very good portrait of the main Japanesse soldier. Perhaps the films strongest asset is how balanced it is. One gets a good dose of action, history, character devolopment and plot and even if any one of these aspects are not very strong taken by itself, as a whole it makes for a very worthwhile movie experiance. It is a shame that this film hasn't gotten much attention as it is definitly a lot better than some of the flotasm floating around out there.
