Tedious low budget which tell the truth
10 February 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

When U bought this, I actually though I bought the original movie from 1968, which has a cover almost like this one. It's not the American cover showed here, but almost identical to the poster shown on the 1968 movie. I realize this was done to confuse us Scandinavian DVD buyers, and I'm afraid to say they succeeded in fooling me.

No doubt the instructor of this failed in telling a story which you believe in, even though this is a true story, told quite truthfully. How's that possible? Well, simply by make a B-casting which aren't directed like it should have been.

The film is not very interesting. Still there is some effort put into it from some of the crew and the actors. But the talent is lacking from the film maker (and producer) which is spewing out films. I paid a dollar to see this, and I'm afraid to say that was at least a dollar too much.

If you still like watching bad movies, it has some qualities in the efforts from the actors, really trying their best.

Be wise, stay away from this! Wrote this to help you getting through the jungle, if you want to survive a world full of bad movies! If you bought this on DVD, which you probably did, throw away the CD and the paper, and use the plastic cover off one if your own CDs.
