Filming in Singapore took place in areas where actual fighting took place. The Sungei Buloh Wetlands (featured at the start of the film) is where the Japanese Imperial Army first landed on the night on 8 February 1942. Bukit Brown (in the middle of the island) contains an old Chinese Cemetery. Gravestones can been seen in various shots throughout the film. See more »

I read the reviews before watching this movie so I was already a bit prepared of what I was going to see. I read there was not much dialogs and to me for a good movie sometimes it's not even necessary. But in this movie there is almost no conversation at all. The only line the main character had to remember is his name. He said it twice and that's it. I don't say Khan Chittenden failed as an actor because his expressions of fear and anguish are good but since there are two actors I thought a little bit of conversation would have done good to the movie. So the movie will just be liked by people that like jungle scenery. Nature is the only thing that keeps the movie interesting but then I wonder if I was not better going on a walk in the forest instead of watching this movie.
