Set in the context of the Sandinista government in Nicaragua and their battle with the U.S.-backed Contra rebels. Eddie Guerrero (Robert Beltran) is a Vietnam War veteran sent to help U.S. Special Forces train Contra rebels. Eddie falls for a local girl, Marlena (Annette Cardona). However, when her father is killed by the Contras, things change.Written by
I recall that this film was highly controversial when it was first released with a cry from certain political figures to ban its showing. Seeing it now, you wonder what all the uproar was about. Nothing more then a B film, the story plot and acting was mediocre to say the least. Roberto Beltran is the only good thing about this film and tries his best, but there really isn't much to go on..Beltran plays a Green Beret who is sent on a secret mission to train and support US allies in Central America. However, just for historical reasons its worth a one time viewing.
