A war movie shot for around three bucks in the Philippines and seemingly pitched at the sub-drive-in market. However, followers of Hellman should be able to discern traces of the futility that dominated subsequent films like The Shooting and Two Lane Blacktop. The script throws in much talk to disguise the fact that the budget couldn't accommodate more battle scenes, and amuses itself by giving a younger and greener Nicholson lines like 'You're the kinda guy who'd call Mahatma Gandhi a rabble-rouser'.
