Filmed in 1981, but unavailable to American viewers until its 1986 videocassette release, ANGKOR-CAMBODIA EXPRESS would have been better left unseen. Set in Thailand and Cambodia two years after the US withdrawal from Vietnam, the film follows American journalist Walker as he returns to

Cambodia to cover a press conference held by vicious Khmer Rouge warlord Wai. Feigning illness, Walker leaves the gathering and sneaks off to meet Alisa, his Cambodian girlfriend, who refused to flee her homeland with him two years before. Now a member of the Khmer Rouge and Wai's lover (both

against her will), Alisa regrets remaining behind, so Walker vows to help her escape. Eventually he bumps into another old friend, photographer Pongwilai, who gives the journalist negatives of a Khmer Rouge slaughter of civilians to smuggle out of the country. Undaunted by capture and torture,

Walker slogs through the jungles of Thailand to meet with a renegade American general, George, who is now fighting the war on his own terms with a makeshift army. Tedious, poorly filmed, and badly scripted, ANGKOR-CAMBODIA EXPRESS manages to drag out nearly every war movie cliche known. The

frequently laughable dialog features such classically hackneyed lines as "There are many ways to make you talk," during the torture scene, and the old standby "So we meet again," which prefaces the climactic hand-to-hand contest.
