  • The Great Raid tells its story without irony, perspective or any leavening that would make it something other than an ordinary military-action caper. show more

  • Just about any golden age Hollywood hack could have made a zestier drama about one of the greatest rescue missions in U.S. military history. show more

  • For all its noble intentions, its striving for authenticity, its unblinking look at the savagery of war, The Great Raid is far more dutiful than dramatic. show more

    I will never understand why this movie does not have the highest rating. It artistically portrays one of the highlights of American and Filipino history. The acting is understated and yet realistic. How can anyone, any American at least, not find this as effecting as The King's Speech. Miramax may have taken a hit but they made a great movie. No wonder it keeps getting replayed on television.
