    Lurid Hammer prison camp story (highly controversial on its release taking an unflinching look at Japanese atrocities during World War II) about a sadistic commandant who has vowed to slaughter all his prisoners should his side lose the war. When the prisoners learn of the end of the war, they keep it a secret until they can stage a revolt. Andre Morell leads the excellent cast of British character actors in this Boy’s Own adventure hokum from a much less politically correct age. Overall, pretty good due to Val Guest's assured direction and Hammer’s economic inventiveness.
