Storyline

Turning the church into a military fort, the unrelenting heat and malaria starts to sweep across the men. After the Captain's death by a disease called beriberi, Cerezo steps in as the new leader of the squad, faced with a constant power struggle with Jimeno, a soldier from the previous squad annihilated by the rebels. Becoming more and more paranoid and obsessive with the victory and the glory of the Spanish Empire, the rebels close to Cerezo explain that Spain has already sold the Philippine Islands to the USA, ceding all the colonies from the Spanish Empire, and that the war ...

No historical appreciation!
6 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

Good movie and enjoyed it. Couldn't figure out why it took so long to shoot the woman. Not a bloody movie, and pretty well done ... but as an Old West historian I was horrified to see at the opening the mistaken date of 1998--which was REPEATED at the end of the film!! Sorry to all concerned, it was 1898, a hundred years earlier.
