My rating: 3/10
Will I watch it again? Uh-uh.
Damn, this was boring and unnecessary. There's enough stock footage to make a separate movie. Seriously. What's even more pathetic is that some of that footage comes from other Nazisploitation flicks! The story is simple enough that it'd be hard to screw up but it's all in the execution. It's a juvenile effort in film making and has a bare minimum for what any fan of the genre would expect. There's very little nudity, torture, etc - you know...exploitation.
It's dull from start to finish and ranks toward the bottom of the genre...and that's saying a lot.
