When the drug lord is first seen, several "prisoners" are executed by hanging. They are clearly wearing harnesses under their clothing that suspend them from the rope when the stones are kicked out from under their feet. See more »

Quotes

Mercenary: [talking to python] My lovely little snake! You slippery little thing. I wish I could have a pair of fangs like yours. Your belly's like a glob of spit to the touch, you slimy, wretched, oversized eel! Mm, I love ya! Come here and give me another kiss with those big fangs. Ha ha ha ha!

Casualties of War
28 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Sometimes known as 'Cannibal Mercenary', sometimes known as 'The Jaguar Project' and at other times known as 'Jungle Killers', this Thai horror movie is certainly not the 'Cannibal Holocaust' or 'Cannibal Ferox' clone that one might expect from its most common title. The first forty minutes are devoid of horror and have more in common with 'Casualties of War' as a group of soldiers accept a mission as mercenaries during the Vietnam War and contend with a local woman who tags along. The middle section of the movie is more gruesome as the mercenaries encounter vicious traps as they approach the drug lord's territory, but it is only in the final twenty minutes that we see any cannibal action as the drug lord's minions torture the captured mercenaries, eating them upon death. As one can probably guess from such a description, this film by any title is a real a mixed bag, but there are enough memorable images throughout to keep things chugging along, including a wrestle with a large snake, multiple scenes in which the mercenaries are made to swallow urine, plus detailed, grisly cannibalistic action near the end. The editing design (which includes a lot of rapid fire cuts) is sometimes distracting, but there are some neat graphic match rapid fire cuts in the mix, and the unusual editing ensures that the film seldom bores for all its weaknesses.
