Did You Know?


Screenwriter Donald F. Glut wrote the film's screenplay, but withheld the last third from producer-director Kenneth Hartford (aka Kenneth Herts) when he wasn't paid. Rather than pay, Hartford opted to write his own ending, which explains the film's bizarre final half hour. See more »

User Reviews

Very funny, hard to intentionally create a script like this
31 August 2014 | by dinerfood-901-211557See all my reviews

"Hell squad hell squad we're the best, don't ever put us to the test. We're a helluva of a fighting machine, we are tough and goddamn mean. The hell squad girls gotta lot of sass, if you mess with us we'll kick your ass." Uh, sure anytime.

You can actually start anywhere in the movie and start watching. I picked this point where they where matching and all had matching short-shorts with some type of beret and chanting the above ditty. After a few weeks each one is commando trained and an expert in their field, according to the recruiter.

The filmmakers had a great time making this thing. The only thing that it lacks was a group shower scene. Lots of Hollywood bunny "actors" from small town Idaho and New Jersey (probably). After trekking out with jeeps they kill a group of Arab soldiers, who can't fight, then they go back to the hotel and take another group bath. On and on it just never ends. Don't think we'll get a blue ray anytime soon.
