Movie Info

In the spring of 1945, Japan established a secret base, Unit 731 in Manchuria, where many innocent Chinese, Korean and Mongolian people were killed in grotesque experiments. An idealistic young doctor , Morishima, is horrified by the experiments being performed in the camp and when his fiancée arrives disguised as a Chinese prisoner he sets out to liberate the camp. A docudrama sequel to the notorious Men Behind the Sun, which pulls no punches when it comes to delivering the shocks!

Audience Reviews for Hei tai yang 731 xu ji zhi sha ren gong chang (Men Behind the Sun 2: Laboratory of the Devil)

Sequel to Men Behind the Sun strips away the historical background and goes for the pure shock value. In other words, this goes the Exploitation way, and doesn't really rely on facts, like the first one. I thought the original was a hard viewing experience, but a necessary one at that due to the fact that the events actually happened. However with this follow-up, I never heard of this really happening, and it's all fictional as far as I'm concerned. I'm one who usually does research on historical subjects, but this one just doesn't deliver anything that is accurate. Substituting, pure shocks, instead of shocking facts, like the first one did is simply a waste of celluloid. This is an awful film that really doesn't have any redeeming features whatsoever. This isn't a film worth seeing, and it offers nothing to really show you the horrors of what the Japanese did. For what they did, watch the first film. Just don't watch the second one. You'll be glad you did. This film was awful, and really didn't use historical content whatsoever. The film used something fictional while using disturbing images to create something "memorable". Well, it's a forgettable movie, one that never should have been made. I really didn't like the film. Although the first one was hard to watch, the film was quite accurate in its portrayal of Japanese atrocities at Unit 731. This one simply doesn't offer anything interesting to watch. Accuracy, isn't there, and it is a very flawed movie that omits its history altogether in order to create an Exploitation picture. The first film, was decent, and told the harsh reality in an unflinching, gut turning way. This is forgettable, and a waste in trying to watch it. Avoid it.

Even sicker and twisted than the first MBTS film, this one is pure exploitation and loses the documentary style of the first one. It seems this one was just made to shock and repulse, which it does! Gorehounds, like me, will be satisfied for sure. But apart from the gruesomeness, it's quite an average film. For the depraved out there it's a must-see though.
