Good idea let down by a mostly shoddy production.
Watch the first 15 minutes for a really great World War 2 commando operation and some interesting plot twists. At that point, switch off and keep the good memories. Maybe the money ran low or the tropical setting took its toll on cast and crew. Whatever the reason, most of this movie is plagued by low production values, a rapidly deteriorating script and hammy acting. Ernest Borgnine's performance led me to wonder if Captain Binghampton from McHale's Navy might also put in an appearance. A great pity because the core idea of a German plan to attack the USA with a secret weapon was at least plausible - until it fell into the wrong hands!
