An excellent character study.
27 November 2000 | by (Oakland, CA) – See all my reviews

Of all the countless Vietnam war movies made by cult director Cirio Santiago this is by far the best and most intelligent.

It's basically "The Cube" in the jungle:

Five very different people are put in an unexpected life threatening situation they need to master together without any help from outside. The similarities to the characters in "The Cube" are stunning: The authority figure who takes responsibility and suddenly turns bad, the medic and "peace protester", the outsider,... and as a replacement for the maze of cubes there's a dense jungle filled with booby traps and deadly enemies.

If you liked "The Cube" you'll love this extremely well though out and executed low budget movie.
