Rating:
Jungle Heat is a spy film that takes place on the cusp of World War II. It's set in Hawaii, where a group of Japanese saboteurs set out to demoralize the island-state's populace before the impending attack on Pearl Harbor. They target the pineapple groves and sugar plantations, intent on burning them down and destroying business and jobs for the Hawaiian people. An unlikely hero discovers the plot. Doctor Jim Ransom (Lex Baker) encounters the sabotage group during one of their missions and manages to figure out just what they are up to. Hardly anyone believes him and he cannot act alone against a whole crew of trained spies. Fortunately, he is joined by Guard officer Richard Grey (Glenn Lagan), who also believes that something's afoot in the lush paradise. Together, they investigate and attempt to stop a plan that will otherwise destroy Hawaii's natural economic resources and destabilize the state just in time for the horrendous attack on Pearl Harbor.moreless
