Trivia

Private Mario says he is of the 2nd Company of the 5th Marines. The 5th Marine Division wasn't created at the time the movie is set. So this is a factual error. See more »

Standard plot, nice camerawork.
25 October 2002 | by SorsimusSee all my reviews

A decent pacific war action film. The story is familiar, a small random group of survivors from a Japanese attack have to undertake an "impossible" mission. Much is saved by crisp characters and rugged acting, though masterpiece this one is not.

An unusual feature for a film of this kind is the camerawork. Not only does the camera move a lot, already lifting this film above some of its peers, there are also a couple of visually ambitious sequences.

Released on video in Finland in the early eighties.
