Well now. I guess I am in the minority on this one. By now everyone must be familiar with the concept of “so bad it’s good,” and for me, that’s where this shlockfest came down. Entertainingly horrible.
Another low budget period piece that takes place in the 1940’s, but they didn’t quite pull it off. Everything still looks like it was shot in the Philippines in 1976 for a budget of two dollars, which it was (too bad they don’t even mention on the package that it’s supposed to be a World War II movie).
But this thing is so clichéd it’s hilarious! Anyone who would dare to call his lead character “Major Stony Stonewall” with a semi-straight face is my kind of idiot. Ah yes, the blustery, cigar-chomping chauvinist pig commander who “doesn’t play by the rules.” Haven’t we seen this a FEW times before? I was rolling my eyes and chuckling at the same time. Women with nothing to lose are recruited in Australia by the U.S. Major during World War II to infiltrate a “resort island” where top Japanese generals are going to be gathering soon for a secret meeting and a little pre-paid cookie. Their secret mission: get ’em in bed, and get ’em dead.
Yes, most of the action is fist fighting, but there’s two military battles, one at the beginning and one at the climax of the film, plenty of machine guns firing blanks and Filipino extras sliding down hills to a fake death, a little bit of fake movie blood, and hell, even a guard tower that gets blown up real good. What do you people want from a low budget Filipino production from 1976, CGI effects? They worked with what they had.
