Trivia

The Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) battleship "Yamato" featured in this movie was a real Second World War Japanese ship. It was named after the ancient Japanese Yamato Province. It was both the equal largest and equal heaviest battleships ever constructed. The "Yamato" was sunk on 7 April 1945, as is indicated in this film's closing credits. The wreck of the "Yamato" was discovered on 1 August 1985. The ship was the subject of and lent its name to the title of its own Japanese movie in 2005, called "Yamato" (aka Yamato (2005)).

Should Warrant A Look On DVD
7 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are only a few actors in this film, which makes it somewhat of an oddity.

Gary Graham plays an American soldier fighting off the Japanese on a remote Pacific island in the last few days of World War II. He is accompanied by a missionary nun, Maria Holvoe, who looks anything like a nun. Maria is a sultry, sexy woman and complete miscast here. Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa plays Graham's main adversary. He is a noble fighter who wants to win fair-and-square....and that costs him.

The main attribute of this film is the stylish photography and it needed a DVD treatment because many of the scenes are in darkness and not easy to see. It's wonderfully filmed and the story is decent enough to warrant a better look, so I may buy it. The only viewing I had of this was on VHS.
