Boring Filipino war film
13 February 2015 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

American movie moguls James H. Nicholson and Samuel Z. Arkoff usually had a good idea of what would bring in the drive in audience, so it's mystifying why they would pick up this cheap Filipino movie for an American release. Unless the rights to the movie were as cheap as the film itself. Anyway, the movie is a big letdown. The main problem with the movie is how utterly dull it is. There is far too much talk, and despite all this talk, it doesn't manage to flesh out any of the characters particularly well. What little action there is in the movie has absolutely no bite or excitement. About the only thing the movie does right is photographing the movie in black and white, which not only masks some of the cheap nature of the movie, it also makes the World War II setting a little more believable than had it been shot in color. Only for film historians with an interest in Filipino cinema.
