Did You Know?


In Spain it was released directly to videocassette in 2 different editions. Both editions had a fake drawn poster. In one poster, one of the characters included a look-a-like version of Arnold Schwarzenegger just like the movie Raw Deal (1986). The other included the characters of the movie Nasty Hero (1987).

Great musical score.......shame about the film
1 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The curse of stolen footage rears its ugly head and despoils what might have otherwise been a pretty good film here, in this Italian made, WWII themed flick.

The plot concerns an elite group of five mercenaries, each with highly specialised skills, who are hired to take out a German Command Center situated deep within a lime stone cavern system. Along the way to this objective, our intrepid soldiers of fortune also undertake various sub missions including blowing up an arms supply train and a German airfield (presumably said missions included by the filmmakers to pad out proceedings somewhat).

Sounds OK(ish) thus far? There's a slight problem though….Unfortunately, as mentioned previously, whenever said action scenes occur, one can't help but to notice the mismatched, grainy footage stolen from an obviously more ambitious, older war flick that is clumsily edited in!

Not so good then, but I must absolutely commend the music score in this which proves to be admittedly excellent and highly memorable. In fact, seeing as the trailer also features the exact same score whilst all the best bits from the film play out on screen it is probably more judicious to sit and watch that instead.
