The Philippine locales supply a lush tropical dressing to brighten the heroics of a small band of Americans and natives who fight the US cause against the invading Japs. Tyrone Power and Tom Ewell, escape into the jungle after the sinking of their P-T boat. They join the natives to fight guerrilla fashion against the Japs.

Footage has some good, male humor mixed in with the derrin-do, and Fritz Lang’s direction develops a strong sense of expectancy and suspense in the story-telling.
