gives "low budget" a whole new meaning.
15 July 2001 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I kept having the feeling watching this movie that they really didn't have any money for any of the post-production work. Obviously they intended to redub the audio to give the actors better voices but they never did. Oliver Tobias is supposed to be a famous American football player, but occasionally his British accent slips out! Even more funny is Jeff Moldovan as the "Dominican" guard who speaks out against Americans but obviously has no sort of accent or anything (he's just an American made up to look Latino).

As for the other aspects of the film, it's a pretty wild and spectacular disaster when it finally decides to get going. The first half is rather dull with Tobias searching for his daughter and finding her in an awful Dominican jail. The second half involving the football team raiding the prison while wearing their uniforms must be seen to be believed. Particularly hilarious is the scene later on where the football team wipes out the entire Dominican army at an airport and don't even lose a single guy (even though they are wearing cumbersome bright yellow uniforms). Then a guy sticks a grenade inside a football and drop-kicks it into an enemy helicopter, blowing it out of the sky! I honestly could never have dreamt up something any more ludicrous, and this movie is worth the watch for that alone.

Be warned though, despite the presence of a whole host of cool actors and the fact that it was made by the legendary producer Fabrizio De Angelis under a fake name, this film is absolutely abysmal and was never released in the U.S. for a reason. Shamelessly bad photography, moronic music, and extraordinarily bad acting run amuck here and more of the actors seem bored out of their minds besides Borgnine who seems to have some fun even though I'm sure even he was aware the film would be terrible. As a side note, I noticed that a curiously high amount of people in the cast were named "Jim".
