Jonathan L (kr) wrote: I don't remember this movie having a great plot or great character development or an interesting theme. In fact, I remember it being rather rambling and hard to keep up with. What I love about this movie is the cinematography which provided the illusion of plot and character development. This is the only movie that I can think of that relied upon cinematography as the primary vehicle of development. The film takes the characters across the world visiting various countries. There was one director. But filming in each country relied upon a separate film crew. And each of these crews lent a unique flavor to their part of the film. There was a subtle change in the film that gave each location it's own feel and yet the plot and characters provided a continuity. It was like flavors during a good meal, perfectly balanced and complementary, yet distinct and providing their own contribution to a work of art. And the unfolding of these flavors, from appetizer to dessert, has it's own occult logic and eidetic inevitability.

Matthew D (br) wrote: The first film was great because it was so lean; cut down to bare minimum, the sequel groans under the weight of so much fat. It tries desperately hard to inject personality into its characters and set-up and fails miserably, often heading into absurdity. Nevertheless, the predator moments are pretty good, and with few questions answered the first time around the mystery surrounding it keeps one watching through the boredom. The answers when they come are pretty good.

Dave J (de) wrote: Wednesday, August 31, 2011 (1960) Battle of Blood Island WAR Super low budget war film centering on two stranded soldiers left on an island during WWII, with emotions running high as a result of looking after one another! It looks better on a novel, but to see this act out on screen with medicore acting and some unconvincing fighting and poor set ups, although well intentioned- one can get better stories told on books than to waste time watching this! Footnote: I had no idea this was a Roger Cormon feature until I looked at another persons review whose known as the king of low budget movies! 2 out of 4
