Funny for the first 3 minutes

It opens with a guy in a "uniform" (everyone's dressed completely randomly) that looks like it came from a fancy dress store, shouting "nazi scum" and "I'm gonna kill more Krauts" and goes downhill from there.

A lot of the props are toys and the helmets look like upturned flowerpots. The reviewer who gave this 10/10 is probably the directors mother.

Watch the first few minutes for a laugh but move on quickly!

Amateur war effort

WAR RAIDERS: FINAL COUNTDOWN is a WW2 action movie shot on an indie budget, so it's as bad as you'd expect. A quartet of American soldiers head into occupied territory in order to retrieve some secret Nazi codes. The whole thing looks like it was shot on a paintball site out in the woods somewhere. There's little decent story, no action, and no discernable acting talent; a dud, in other words.

Ed Wood would have been embarassed by this "movie"

While this film has the look and feel of something that might have been slapped together by a couple of kids with a camcorder, playing war in their backyard.... that comparison might actually be an insult to a couple of kids with a camcorder, playing war in their backyard.

The writer could not write a coherent script. The actors can not act and they stumble through their poorly written lines. The film maker's complete lack of understanding how to make a film is only matched by his complete lack of knowledge about World War Two.

This no budget production of a World War Two film that looks more like four guys pretending to be soldiers in someone's backyard actually lacks the production values that most no budget films have. There is zero effort put into any attempt to make this look like it is the 1940's. Not a single character or extra is wearing anything that remotely resembles an actual WW2 uniform. Weapons, uniforms, and other props are all also from different eras. As an example, the main character, "sarge," wears a purple t-shirt, green sweat pants, a belt of machine-gun ammo (even though they have no machine-gun) under his jacket so it can't be accessed, and a toy plastic helmet on his head. The field radio prop they use is a 1970's transistor radio with a corded telephone handset taped to it.

When not using lame flame filter effects on the screen to try to simulate combat, in true Ed Wood fashion, the film constantly cuts to various pieces of stock footage of combat, reenactments, or training to try (unsuccessfully) to create the illusion that the characters are interacting with what is happening in the stock footage. As bad as their attempt to blend stock footage into the action is, it is made worse by the fact that much of the stock footage has nothing to do with World War Two. They use footage from World War One reenactments and even use modern combat and training footage.

This is less of a review than it is a warning.... stay away.
