As a fledgling filmmaker, actor-turned-director Carl Franklin churned out three potboilers for Roger Corman's Concorde Pictures. The last of the trio, EYE OF THE EAGLE II: INSIDE THE ENEMY, is a by-the-numbers 'Nam vengeance drama shot in the Philippines.
In the midst of the Vietnam war, Private Anthony Glenn (William Field) is the only survivor from a platoon that was betrayed by their commanding officer, Major Sorenson (Andy Wood). Glenn attempts to get Sorenson court-martialed but runs headfirst into a coverup engineered by Sorenson himself.
With the help of Mai, a Vietnamese girl who was sexually exploited by Sorenson, Glenn hunts for the major, bent on bringing him to justice.
Hampered by flaccid scripting, Franklin is unable to transform the material into anything other than a procedural war picture. The performers are unformly adequate, but ultimately, EYE OF THE EAGLE II contains nothing that could impress itself on the viewer's memory.(Violence, profanity,nudity.)
