Controversial For Its Time
25 July 2017 | by angelsunchainedSee all my reviews

I recall that this film was highly controversial when it was first released with a cry from certain political figures to ban its showing. Seeing it now, you wonder what all the uproar was about. Nothing more then a B film, the story plot and acting was mediocre to say the least. Roberto Beltran is the only good thing about this film and tries his best, but there really isn't much to go on..Beltran plays a Green Beret who is sent on a secret mission to train and support US allies in Central America. However, just for historical reasons its worth a one time viewing.
