During WWII, a pilot and her crew carry a small group of American soldiers and an unknown cargo. However they get caught in a storm and they are forced to land in what is thought to be enemy territory. But the small island they land on holds more than men with guns.
The M1 carbines used by the Americans are shown as having to have the bolt manually operated after each shot, whereupon the casing ejects. In fact, the M1 gas operated carbine had a 20 (or 30) round magazine, and was a semi-automatic rifle, self-ejecting and loading the next round. It could handle rapid repeat fire by simply pulling the trigger quickly. (The M1 carbine is a different weapon to the M1 rifle (aka Garand) which is not seen in this movie) See more »
Not so with this one. It's just painfully bad. Brian Krause is the best actor in this dog and that's really saying something. Something not at all good.
The premise promises plenty of laughs (WWII airwomen and soldiers stranded on an island of killer dinosaurs and Japanese soldiers), but the writing takes itself entirely too seriously, as do the painfully, painfully bad actors. The woman who plays the skipper is beyond dreadful. Whoever approved this POS really needs to reevaluate their career. Seriously. I consider myself a bit of a connoisseur of Scifi original movie cheese and even I couldn't stand this thing.
