Terror in Paradise (1990)

How bad is it? Barely there action film.
Should you see it? No - not that you're likely to find it.

This film is nearly impossible to find (VHS only); this review is from my recollection 25 years after seeing it. Filmed in the Philippines, produced by Cirio Santiago (well-known on this blog), and directed and written by brothers, this is truly by-the-numbers: a couple stumbles upon evildoers and then gets hunted by them, with completely predictable results. There's a guy who recovers from facial plastic surgery in a moment. The pretty female lead takes off her clothes whenever possible. The military guys can't hit anything with weaponry. There's a helicopter, but I don't remember if the cliche' of it exploding is used.
