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 »

This Was A Good Movie
25 June 2002 | by Big Movie FanSee all my reviews

Whilst this movie could never be called a fantastic movie it is still worth one look.

I like Hulk Hogan but what attracted me to the film initially (apart from Hogan) was the casting-we had Shannon Tweed (beautiful!) and underrated actors Martin Kove and Carl Weathers. What a team they all made.

It's a fairly routine action thriller but there are some great scenes throughout the movie particularly at the end when the team all go out to rescue the hostages.

There are a lot of other action movies out there that are fantastic but this is certainly decent enough.
