    I saw this movie back in 1968 when I was 10 years old it was during a double feature with a King Kong movie that was released in 1968 I found that WK movie to be very very good.And for a 10 year old to see that kind of movie with the type of content and violence that was in it was just ever so exciting because of it's never ending suspense. My every concern and wonder I thought the movie should have been rated R.but as a 10 year old what can you do sit back and clearly enjoy the movie it was just said that the dogs get killed in that movie for they were very loyal dogs they did all that they could do to protect their masters in terms of attacking the enemy the Japanese who was very very violent and very dedicated warriors.

    Obscure Philipinno-American war movie, with an interesting premise: a newspaper man who has written a series of succesful trash novels about a real-life colonel, travels to the Philippines in order to meet the man he has turned into a 'hero'. He soon discovers his hero is acting more like a beast. The war is nearly over, the Japanese army is defeated, and the colonel is at the head of an elite group that is tracking down Japanese soldiers hiding in the jungle of the country. The group tracks the Japs down, and finishes them of, with the help of big & small friends, bloodthristy dogs and hungry rats. But then the Japs organise themselves and start to fight back, resulting in a final showdown in true Fort Apache style (and yes, there's the cavalry, but they arrive too late on the spot)Suffers a little from a low budget and too much talking of the two leads; both George Montgomery (as the colonel) and Tom Drake (as the writer/journalist) are surprisingly good, but their conversations eventually become like a psychiatric session. No great art, technically often a bit poor, but will please those who want their war movies gritty and bloodthirstyThere seems to be no DVD release of this movie. I watched a copy of an ancient VHS, fullscreen and with awfull video quality, but it was watchable and seems to be the best print around. Worth tracking down (with the help of big & small friends)

  • One of the best I've seen of Guerilla Warfare

    George Montgomery was at his best in this movie. The scenes were stunning and unforgettable.

  • The horrific cost of freedom from tyranny.

    As a young lad of 12 I first viewed this film when it was released in 1968.I was stunned at the unaplogetic violence and brutality levied against the Japanese occupying forces of the Philippines. I could not understand why the "good guys" would be so ruthless and cruel toward the enemy. At the time I had no knowledge of the brutal viloence which had characterized the Japanese occupation of South East Asia: no understanding of the atrocities brought against the people of Chung King China; no concept of the infamous Bataan death march, which claimed the lives of thousands.Which brings me to the reason for writing this article. Armed now with a basic understandig of the brutal character of the Japanese occupation of the Philippines, I would like to view this film again that I may place it within its historical context.Perhaps then I will understand why good men must at times do bad things, so that evil can be overcome.Let's get this film of DVD!
