#1285 Opposing Force aka Hell Camp (1986)

Ok, so the premise in Opposing Force is interesting: there’s a group of trainees attending what’s called the toughest ever bootcamp where the attendees are put to a p.o.w. camp run by other soldiers. But as the events soon start escalating out of hand, it becomes clear to all that the commander of the camp has been blinded by his power and acts purely out of sadistic pleasure.

This is where the good news end, as the next to nothing in the movie really clicks into place. The dodgy execution is coupled with completely forgettable and charism free acting work by the lead Lisa Eichhorn, and Tom Skerritt, usually a strong actor is totally lost in his role of imprisoned Major Logan.
