Goofs

The troops guarding Manteuffel's lab at the beginning of the film are improperly uniformed. They wear the Nazi party swastika armbands although they are clearly wearing Wehrmacht army uniforms. The armband was only work by SS troops and Nazi officials and, by this point in the war, only with full dress uniforms and not in the field. See more »

Dudikoff slowly narrates his way through this 103 minutes of boredom.
6 October 2006 | by Nick DrewSee all my reviews

This movie is the pits. The worst kind of B film making. The acting isn't bad, but that's not saying much. Robert Vaughn and Donald Pleasance are included in the cast, and sleep walk their way through their respective scenes. Dudikoff doesn't do much apart from wandering about and mouthing his dialogue. There is some gun play and pyrotechnics later on in the movie, but the pace is so deadly slow you probably won't notice. The jungle locale' isn't used to good effect, and the photography is listless. This movie is a pointless exercise in monotony. There is nothing to get your teeth into, the scenario is so uninteresting, it all amounts to very little. Even Dudikoff fans won't be able to find anything redeeming about this outing. Consider the bullet dodged.
