The Fourth War Reviews
Director Wolfgang Schmidt was also behind Slasher.
I will add to this preposterous, rather far fetched personal war between Scheider and his military counterpart on the other side. I really can't believe Scheider would entertain being in this incredibly strange and bizarre plot.
Hardly a Cold War thriller in which an American colonel (Roy Scheider) and his Soviet counterpart (Jurgen Prochnow) engage in a private, potentially disastrous war. Lots of border clashes, showdowns, stuff we see in all these East-West border skirmishes.
