      Audience Member A decent enough low-budget war camp drama but it's delivery is extremely in your face with the anti-communist sentiment and there's little point to this movie other than a piece of a cold war propaganda. The best line comes in the first scene when Ronald Regan is told he'll be taking a course to learn something about communism as it may prove useful for the future.... how prophetic!
