In "Back Door to Hell," Craig(Jimmie Rodgers), Burnett(Jack Nicholson) and Jersey(John Hackett) are on a secret mission to Japanese occupied Philippines during World War II. They are assigned to scout out a possible invasion zone and to meet up with Miguel. Except they meet up with Paco(Conrad Maga) instead who tells them Miguel is dead and by his hand. Oh and the Japanese know the Americans are there and have taken the village's children hostage. With some uneven acting, "Back Door to Hell" might also be a little rough around the edges at times due to its very low budget. But it's still suspenseful in spots with a neat use of locations. Much more importantly is that it allows for a Filipino point of view, implying 50 years of difficult relations between the United States and the Philippines.(In point of fact, Paco is by far the most interesting character here.) In general, we get some early and valuable insight into guerilla warfare, along with a required reading list for guerilla leaders.
