    WWII film about the Filipino resistance against the Japanese. Not a bad film with some good action, but has a little too much flag waving. I like the idea of the story, but it has too many dramatic moments that come off as a little hokey. Wayne and Quinn are good together, but overall just a run of a mill film for them so they are wasted.
