I'm kind of surprised no IMDb user has posted a user comment on this movie before me. Guess it's up to me to get the ball rolling. Anyway, the copyright in the end credits for this movie attributes the owners of the movie to be the "Santa Fe Pension Plan and Trust". I wonder how the investors of this movie reacted when they saw what their retirement dollars made. This is an often strange Vietnam exploitation movie. There's a good amount of sex and nudity (a trademark of prolific Filipino movie producer Cirio Santiago), but there's far less action than you might think. There are long stretches where there's no action at all. And when there is action, there is often a surreal feeling to it, from the inappropriate music to the odd direction. Adding to the surreal feeling are some glaring gaps where some key explanation to what's happening is needed but never comes. The production values aren't bad for a cheapo Filipino B movie, but the fairly good look and the sexual material don't make up for a story that is more often than not slow and passionless. If you must see an entry in the EYE OF THE EAGLE series, I recommend you look for part 3, which has a good amount of flaws but redeems itself with some expertly made action sequences.
