CGiii Comment

Bizarre to say the least...

An army camp under attack on the front line - with two pissed-off wives thrown in to mess things up.

20:13 refers to the biblical condemnation of men sleeping with men...in the army!!! No!?!

The admirable technical ability is, lamentably, let down by a simplistic script - it's not too difficult to work out.

The idea of a homo-murder mystery is pretty good - unfortunately, there isn't much mystery...

The whole film just lacks one vital ingredient...intelligence.
