Mary Millington meets Hammer,
A classic from begining to end. Whether a devotee of bad dubbing, terrible music, Green Nazis or lots of female flesh this film is a must. The swimming scenes are pure Esther Williams, I now know where the phrase "Muff diving" originated.
Nazis under water, what more could you ask for . The story line is not exactly linear. sometimes there's a Zombie attack and suddenly they've gone. The daughter of the Nazi appears to be aged 12 yet the film seems set in the 1970's so she's aged a bit strangely seeing that she is born in 1944 !
The women's basket ball team are magnificant specimins of pulchritude, though I think a nude basket ball game would have made it even better . Some of the other peasant girls killed are not so pretty and in these cases you are just shown a bit of thigh or cleavage.
Peasants with American accents who fire guns like they used to in 1930's cowboys.
It is sad that the romance plot wasn't strenghened to show the poignancy of war relationships but you can't have everything
The battle scenes with explosions - Wohhhhh ! Makes Apocalypse now look like a tea party.
Go on buy or rent it. It's even better after about eight pints and a lamb passanda !
