Thomas Ian Griffith,
Shot in English with a largely Bulgarian crew, "Frogmen" is a fair medium-budget commando-type action film. The script has one good plot twist in the middle, and tries to make the main villain at least two-dimensional, by giving him a motive of personal revenge (instead of mere greed) for his terrorist actions. The cast is largely unknown (though apparently the lead has been a regular in "General Hospital" for 13 years!), but they do their job. The action itself is mostly by-the-numbers (and the underwater sequences suffer, as usual, from the limited visibility), but the film certainly doesn't skimp on the explosions. Passable if forgettable fare. ** out of 4.
