Review: The Great Raid

Like any war movie these days, it’s focused on a smaller mission, while expanding the story from there. For this story, based on true facts, quite a few unkown facts are used. Japan invaded the Philipines while US soldiers were stationed there, after which they had a lot to endure. It was only during the end of the war a US Army Rangers division was sent on a POW rescue mission. Build a love story around it, and throw in a building underground movement, and you have yourself one heck of an inspirational movie.
Enterntainment value lies somewhere between the popcorn ready Pearl Harbor, and the utterly boring The Thin Red Line. The screenplay isn’t as sharp as it could be, but it’s still a nice effort.7-.
