EYE OF THE EAGLE is just one of the innumerable no-budget war flicks
shot in the Philippines by director Cirio H. Santiago in the late '80s.
Watching this, you'll have no desire to track any of the director's
other films down, as it stands as one of his dullest and most routine
flicks despite the plethora of over-the-top explosions and gun
battles that populate the film's running time. The film begins in the
middle of a gun battle, introduces our trio of heroes at a later stage
when it can be bothered and then has lots of running around as they
fight off the Vietcong. About halfway through, a plot struggles to
appear involving a jungle camp of renegades and murders and
following this the movie limps along to a lacklustre conclusion.
Never has it been more obvious that Santiago was just shooting this to
make a quick buck he doesn't appear to be interested at all in the
plot, characters or dialogue, so all three are by-the-numbers. There's
absolutely nobody in the film to care about, as the heroes are all
selfish meat heads and the sole female an annoyingly brassy
photographer who thinks nothing of putting others in danger. Brett
Clark stars as the one-dimensional hero, and while he knows how to fire
a gun, he doesn't appear to have grasped the essentials of acting
sometimes his dialogue is so mumbled that I'm surprised Santiago didn't
ask for another take. The film's sole well-known person is Robert
Patrick, aka the Liquid Metal Man from TERMINATOR 2; man, what a break
that must have been after appearing in obscure Filipino action films
like this! Sadly Patrick doesn't get a chance to make an impression in
the film, as other than a couple of angry outbursts, his screen time is
limited to running around shooting and being tied up.
Other cast members are familiar if you're weird enough to have watched
many Filipino exploitation movies. William Steis from the same
director's DEMON OF PARADISE is here, as is old Mike Monty, a
red-haired older guy who always played a Colonel-type in these types of
films. Also popping up in a cameo appearance is none other than Vic
Diaz, big, bald and as villainous as ever.
The cheapness of the production is even more apparent than is usual for
the director. When our intrepid trio are called on to ambush a train,
the budget doesn't even stretched to a normal one instead we get a
dinky little model train, those ones that are little more than head
height. Hmph I'll even take a CGI train over the model train seen
here any day. Still, there's room in the budget for a helicopter and
lots and lots of explosions, as well as flying stuntmen and a special
effects technician with a propensity for people being shot in the head.
Sadly, the action isn't varied or particularly stylised, so it all gets
very routine and monotonous very quickly some martial arts bouts amid
the flying bullets would have livened things up a little. Incredibly
or perhaps not surprisingly considering the leeching nature of Filipino
film productions this spawned not one but two sequels!
