who writes this crap
30 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

first. I am no historian. But I know that it wasn't standard procedure for British nurses to start having sex with the wounded soldiers as the rolled into the hospital. Or if it was then I 've totally confused with the difference between a military hospital and a brothel.

Also there is a complete lack of background music that makes this movie move even slower than it already moves. Its filmed like a soap opera. The actors occasionally glance at the camera from the corner of their eyes. The story just is stupid.

a soldier wounded in battle gets medical treatment, and he suffers from amnesia(he cant remember who he is) and his primary nurse almost immediately begins having sex with him. She also goes around having sex with other wounded soldiers to. But she develops feeling for the man who doesn't know who he is. And he actually falls in love with this soldier whore.

this movie is an embarrassment to the studio that made it, and this movie is insulting to anyone in the military medical field and all copies of this film should be gathered up and burned and any record of it's existence wiped out of the record books.

There are so many things to hate about this movie that I don't know where to start. The acting is pitiful and lousy. The story is just stupid. Its filmed without light filters so it looks like a soap opera or a porno movie, the actors keeps watching the camera or looking at someone who is off camera giving them acting instruction(or who knows). There is no background music. the isn't one battle scene in the entire movie. No special effects at all were used. The costumes look like something left over from a local high school play. They couldn't have spent more than $25.00 on this movie and $10.00 of that went toward buying the film they wasted on it.

do yourself a favor a pretend you never heard of this turd!
