Goofs

While most of the US troops have weapons concurrent with WW2, mittens has a non existent one. The barrel looks like it comes from an M17 air cooled Browning machine gun, the receiver looks like it supposed to be from a Thompson submachine gun. By the sound effect, it's supposed to be a 30. Caliber machine gun. But by appearance, it's made up. See more »

Average in most every way
5 February 1999 | by Tito-8See all my reviews

Considering the budget, this isn't a bad film. Compared to movies in general, however, it comes up a little short. I always enjoy seeing Tim Thomerson on the screen, and the story is likable enough, but all things considered, it just didn't do anything for me. There was the occasional laugh, perhaps a touch of drama, and some decent action, but really there was nothing to make this film stand out, and as a result, there is no reason for me to recommend this film to anyone else.
