This film is embarrassingly bad. I don't blame Noriega; he has proved his acting ability in other films. However, the script and the direction for this movie are absolutely terrible. Every line is spoken as if by by a kid in a sixth-grade school production.
The dialogue is nothing more than exposition -- "We need to take the fort. It will give us a moral victory." "Let's go." "A large number of enemy soldiers are coming." "If you are lying, you will b punished." "I saw them." "Where are they?" There is absolutely no drama, no insight, nothing. Just a flat display of a series of events, almost like an old-fashioned "life of the saints" type performance.
The whole movie reminded me of a scene in Woody Allen's "Life and Death," in which a doctor, a soldier, and a prostitute were assigned to present a dramatic performance illustrating the dangers of venereal diseases -- stiff, amateurish, non-acting
