The longer I watched Hell Camp, the more I started to think that it was actually the inspiration for Guantanamo Bay. The inmates of Hell Camp are held in a barbed wire fenced compound in a remote location, periodically isolated in cramped individual cages, humiliated and subjected to psychological and physical brutality and mock executions. When the orange robed, black hooded and shackled prisoners were exposed to abuses such as disorientating white noise and waterboarding, I couldn't believe my eyes. Could the Bush Administration really have based aspects of their foreign policy on a shit 1980s war film? Does someone at The Pentagon just have a sick sense of humour? It's the kind of moronic macho bullshit I could imagine some of them watching, so who knows.
Will our heroine Casey suck up the various hardships like Katy Perry in her music video Part of Me, or will she emerge from her ordeal realising the military are a bunch of dicks? Well, you'll just have to watch this mediocre, potentially world changing, film to find out.
