I had purchased this movie on VHS a while ago because it was included in a high spot on Tim Wambolt's list of most violent/goriest movies. It's badly dubbed, so it hurts the viewing experience a little, but it's still very easy to follow. At least it's in English, as opposed to copies of Muzan E and other underground fare. Anyway, I finally watched it, over about five viewing sessions, so let's begin.
These were my thoughts up until about the 55 minute mark. Then things just become hilarious for all the wrong reasons. A commander gets mad at a soldier for sending a letter to his girlfriend and he bitch-slaps him and his friend nonstop about 30 times with the worst slapping sound effect ever. This scene rivals the infamous Troll 2, "They're eating her," scene for being so brainless that it's almost enjoyable. Almost enjoyable, mind you. And it only gets worse from there. The effects become far less impressive, the story bores you to tears and most of it is devoid of all gore. See Philosophy of a Knife instead.
