    Synopsis


    The Great Raid
    John Dahl directed this war drama based on the true story of one of the most daring military actions of World War II. In the waning days of World War II, General Douglas MacArthur chose to make good on a pledge that he made in 1942 -- that he would return to the Philippines after he and his troops were forced to retreat. However, MacArthur's determination was more than a matter of pride. Over 500 American soldiers were being held in Cabanatuan, a notoriously brutal prisoner of war camp in the Philippines operated by the Japanese army, and MacArthur wanted to see to it that they made it home. MacArthur chose Lt. Col. Henry Mucci (Benjamin Bratt) to lead the Sixth Ranger Battalion on a mission 30 miles behind enemy lines to infiltrate Cabanatuan and liberate the American prisoners. With the help of Capt. Prince (James Franco), Mucci leads his men on a life-or-death raid against forces known for their savagery. The Great Raid was based on William B. Breuer's book The Great Raid on Cabanatuan: Rescuing the Doomed Ghosts of Bataan and Corregidor, and also stars Joseph Fiennes, Connie Nielsen, and Marton Csokas. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      BEST MOVIE I WATCHED

      Posted
      shootergamerguy

      I am Shootergamerguy and if you have'nt read my reviews I use my time watching and playing Shooter games and movies to write these reviews. The Great Raid is a wonderful film of captured U.S. soldiers in Japan. Rangers were sent to help rescue the troops whille this movie tells it's true story. The Great Raid is for those who want to know about the most successful raid in history and for all that love WWII films. This movie may not be a Band Of Brothers but it is deffinetly an action flick worth watching! until next time, Shootergamerguy check out my other revews!

      Little known great movie

      This is not a very popular movie, but it is well worth the money to purchase or rent. It is based on a true story, and an incredible true story at that. Funny thing is... towards the end of the movie, I thought it was kind of unrealistic, but when it ended I was in shock and loved it even more. I won't say more than that, but if you watch it you may have the same reaction (unless you know the story, which I did not). This is a fantastic movie and I definitely recommend to anyone who is a fan of these type of movies.

      Just to clarify the last review, this movie takes place in the Philippines where American soldiers were trapped in a Japanese camp, that took over Manila. The Japanese were ruthless, this movie demonstrates the fight for survival under tyranny occupation.
