Trivia

In the weeks leading up to its premiere, Eric Bischoff encouraged viewers of WCW Monday Nitro (1995) to watch the film by staging the long-awaited WCW Starrcade 1997 (1997) contract signing between Hollywood Hulk Hogan and Sting (Steve Borden) during the commercial breaks. Assault on Devil's Island actually did pretty well on its first showing, drawing a 4.2 rating when it premiered, soundly beating the WWF's Survivor Series Flashback special (which would eventually be released on home video in edited form as WWF: Best of Survivor Series 1987-1997 (1998), which drew a 2.8 against the first hour of the movie. Bischoff crowed about the rating on WCW Monday Nitro: Episode #3.8 (1997), claiming that TNT executives had promised to make a 23-episode television series, if the film drew over a 4.0 rating which it did. But, they didn't make a series, though they did make a sequel, Assault on Death Mountain (1999), airing on TNT two years later. See more »

Reduced to basics
26 November 2007 | by JakethemussSee all my reviews

This is one of those ultra low rent "action" films which just doesn't give a damn. It is so dire, to criticise it would do no good as you would virtually dissect the film to nothing. Instead its better to just laugh at how bad it is, and enjoy the ride.

Unintentional comedy? It must be. This film has clearly had no real effort or much else put into it. Expect slow-mo explosions, huge guns being fired from the hip, totally unrealistic and uninterested action scenes, and off course Shannon Tweed getting topless within about....5 minutes.

This is the kind of film where the hostages are screaming, card board cut outs of girls who find themselves in a totally laughable situation-and do nothing but wait for help. There's also the henchmen, who are muscled, pony-tailed guys with open waistcoats. Billy Blanks appears as some high kicking, beret wearing villain, who's kicks are so good that the same shot of him kicking Hulk is used about 3 times!!
