Very "spaghetti" but has some powerful moments...
5 December 2003 | by DitchpigSee all my reviews

Just watched this one the other day...Looks a lot like one of those spaghetti westerns with poor dubbing, however it has some really powerful moments (some great war conversation) and an interesting storyline. The war is winding down in Europe, but the Americans are looking for a German scientist...Problem is, some of the remaining SS is looking for him too...As the scientist flees, the Germans are always one step behind him and the Americans are always one step behind the Germans. The war in Europe ends, but not for everyone.

I would definitely recommend this movie. May be hard to find, I picked it up on an eBay purchase.
