Movie Reviews

"B" Movie; "D" Transfer to DVD
Matthew Mansfield | Southeast Michigan, United States | 12/14/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this because I liked George Montgomery in a western, 'Cripple Creek,' shown on cable TV. According to an online biography, he was a successful western and B-movie actor, went on to produce and direct some of his own films, including 'The Steel Claw,' and was Dinah Shore's original long-time husband.

This action-adventure has a passable B-movie plot about a disabled marine on a one-man mission to rescue an officer in the early days of the Japanese invasion of the Phillipines, complete with several love interests and decent supporting character development. While the low-budget production values are hard to overlook, the biggest problem is the poor quality of the transfer to DVD. It looks as bad as many home movies.

If you like this actor, marine corps or WWII stories, or just like to watch a character who never says die, then you could indulge in this bargain-priced DVD. Just don't expect a classic."

"This is a pretty good movie, considering its story line. Anyway, having spent time in the PI and knowing history of WWII, it is a favorable representation of what may have happened (but it did not) given the circumstances back in 1942. I am glad to have this movie in my collection.
