it's about a small group recon  Marines on a special mission fighting against the Japanese during WWII

I saw the DVD at FRY's for $9.99 but didnt get it yet, is it any good?

it looks like a entertaining movie

Is that the film with the dumbass wearing the red hat in the jungle?  How'd he get selected for the mission?

Your gneeric war story, nothing too god or too bad about. IIRC it is about a mission behing Jap lines, strictly B or C movie.

I might spend $10 on it, but would probably wait till it goes on clearence.

I decided to buy it and it wasnt a bad movie, the duck hunter pattern camo uniforms the Marines wear looks like the type of uniform worn by early Special Forces advisors, they dont appear to be carrying much ammo or spare mags? the picture quality and scenery was excellent! and since it was filmed in the Philippines the jungle and scenery was perfect, since they were supposed to be on an island in the PI

it did look odd for a Marine to be wearing a red ball cap in the jungle?

Mickey Rooney plays the part of a seasoned combat veteran career Marine [Gunnery SGT] he was automatic weapons specialist and carried a Thompson sub-machine gun, he does look a little short to be playing the part of a career Marine, since in the old Corps they did have height requirements.
