Not worthy of "Man Behind the Sun" title.
6 June 2005 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Unit 731 has to shut down its base in Manchuria and all evidence that it existed must be destroyed.During the shut down,a soldier gets infected with some plague and ends up riding a train back home and somehow this means there is a "biological time bomb,aimed at the heart of the Japanese empire".The first "Man Behind the Sun" is incredibly disturbing and devastating film,on the other hand "Laboratory of the Devil" is just a rip-off of the original with some scenes of shocking violence added for good measure."Narrow Escape" mostly takes place on a train.The film is loaded with flashbacks of graphic experiments from the previous installments and offers literally nothing fresh or interesting.Unfortunately they didn't replay the scene of the guy having his innards squeezed out of him inside the pressure chamber.So if you want to watch this one for sickening violence and gore you'll be sorely disappointed.Watch only "Man Behind the Sun" and "The Nanking Massacre"-don't bother with Godfrey Ho's uninteresting rip-offs.
