Set in the Philippines near the end of WW II, WARKILL tells the story of Montgomery, a hardened, animalistic American colonel who leads a band of Filipino guerrillas in attacks against Japanese troops, and Drake, the journalist who has lionized Montgomery without having met him. When

Drake decides finally to cover the hero in the flesh, he is shocked by his subject's brutal take-no-prisoners tactics. His repulsion lessens, however, when he witnesses atrocities committed by the Japanese and joins Montgomery in a raid in which the colonel dies bravely just before reinforcements

arrive to fend off the enemy. Afterward, Drake decides to keep what he knows about Montgomery's methods secret, preserving the colonel's heroic image. This violent film will please action fans who can overlook its hedging on the ethical conflict between its American protagonists--which becomes

more difficult when one considers that this WW II story was released in 1968, deep into the Vietnam War.
