Opinions from an extra involved in the filming of the film.
13 February 2003 | by (Jacksonville, FL, USA) – See all my reviews

I was a Japanese soldier extra in The Road Raiders, it was filmed in Jacksonville & Green Cove Springs, FL in September/October 1988. The show was supposed to be a CBS TV Pilot Movie for a possible TV show, it obviously never happened because ratings were probably terrible! It was just like the A-Team in concept but took place in World War II Japanese occupied territories like the Philippines. There was action mixed with comedy, and to meet the enemy, the good guys fabricated fighting machines with whatever wrecked planes, trucks & machinery that was laying around. Some of the vehicles used in the movie were displayed in a vehicle display park at Universal Studios Orlando during the mid 90's.
