The friendly invasion by an American movie company for the shooting of this picture, was only the latest of many less welcome "visits" by foreigners experienced by Veracruz, Mexico throughout the centuries. During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, it was a popular target of pirates seeking treasure and women. During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the French, British, and Americans landed there. In 1847, American General Winfield Scott launched his campaign of conquest at the start of the Mexican War, fanning out from the streets of Veracruz. In 1861, Austrian Archduke Maximilian used Veracruz as a jumping off place in his plan to become Emperor of Mexico. In 1914, American troops landed there again, sent by President Woodrow Wilson after American sailors had been arrested in Tampico. But for the film company, the welcome mat was spread out as heavy equipment was trucked in via El Paso, Texas, and over the twisting mountain roads, down to Veracruz. See more »

A plot similar to this film was hatched by H. Ross Perot, as written in the book "On the Wings of Eagles," by Ken Follett about a situation in Iran which was very similar to this movie. To me this film really didn't have hardly anything to do with race, I think the reviewer may be reading a little too much into the plot. For a small action movie, this film was interesting and entertaining. The performance of Robert Duvall is understated and sublime, offset by the tailor-made role of the used car salesman, played by Gary Busey. It seems that Busey really didn't have to stretch his acting skills too much for this role, but it was fun to watch.
