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.
