One of the worst movies I've ever seen
23 February 2009 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Terribly written, sloppily made, poorly acted dreck about a French "commando" unit sent behind the Viet Minh--the predecessors of the Viet Cong--lines in 1954 to rescue a captured nurse. This isn't just a "B" picture, it's a "Z" picture. For a "commando" unit, these guys make the kinds of mistakes that a recruit in his first week of basic training wouldn't make--when attacking a village they all crowd together and run screaming, hollering and firing wildly down the one dirt path that leads to the village instead of quietly approaching it and then attacking from all sides, they set up cooking fires at night and sit around drinking, arguing and laughing uproariously even though they're behind enemy lines and know that the Viet Minh are looking for them, just two examples of many. The "action" scenes are laughable, both the dubbing and sound effects are amateurish in the extreme, the story is convoluted and often makes no sense whatsoever, and the film overall is a jumbled, incoherent, overheated mess. Do yourself a favor and avoid it.
