Storyline

World War II: Allied Command learns that in 60 days three Japanese generals and an admiral party at a bordello on a tiny Philippine island. It's fortified and hard to attack, so a creative, cynical major gets the assignment to figure something else. With the help of Paco, a Filipino guerrilla leader, the major devises a plan to put four women assassins among the prostitutes. He must recruit and train them, convince his general that an unarmed woman can best a man, and get them on the island. The rest is up to them. An imprisoned killer, a nurse with a fatal disease, a chippie on the lamb from the mob, and a Filipina whom the Japanese assaulted are his team. Can they do it? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Shlocktacular!
24 September 2006 | by (North Hollyweird) – See all my reviews

Well now. I guess I am in the minority on this one. By now everyone must be familiar with the concept of "so bad it's good," and for me, that's where this shlockfest came down. Entertainingly horrible.

Another low budget period piece that takes place in the 1940's, but they didn't quite pull it off. Everything still looks like it was shot in the Philippines in 1976 for a budget of two dollars, which it was (too bad they don't even mention on the package that it's supposed to be a World War II movie).

But this thing is so clichéd it's hilarious! Anyone who would dare to call his lead character "Major Stony Stonewall" with a semi-straight face is my kind of idiot. Ah yes, the blustery, cigar-chomping chauvinist pig commander who "doesn't play by the rules." Haven't we seen this a FEW times before? I was rolling my eyes and chuckling at the same time. Women with nothing to lose are recruited in Australia by the U.S. Major during World War II to infiltrate a "resort island" where top Japanese generals are going to be gathering soon for a secret meeting and a little pre-paid cookie. Their secret mission: get 'em in bed, and get 'em dead.

Yes, most of the action is fist fighting, but there's two military battles, one at the beginning and one at the climax of the film, plenty of machine guns firing blanks and Filipino extras sliding down hills to a fake death, a little bit of fake movie blood, and hell, even a guard tower that gets blown up real good. What do you people want from a low budget Filipino production from 1976, CGI effects? They worked with what they had.

It might be a quirk of copyright, but I don't think this is public domain in the United States. Seems like everyone who commented bought it at a pound shop in England, which means that maybe nobody got any royalties.

Unfortunately for my wallet, I had to pay $11 for a double feature of this film along with "Wild Riders" in the new BCI "Starlite Drive-In Theatre" series of B-movie schlock, much of it from the bargain basement archives of Crown International Pictures.

Okay, so I paid $5.50 instead of $1.00 for it. Am I disappointed? NO! No I tell you! There is plenty of entertainment to be had here.

This is a great DVD to practice your Mystery Science Theater auditions with. A lovable piece of dung. Recommended for Drive-In Movie heads.

Certainly the best World War II hooker assassin movie I've seen this week.

But I've got a better title. How about...THE FLIRTY DOZEN??? (groan....) Yeah, that wouldn't even work. There were only four of them.
