I just saw [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] tonight.
I don't even remember this film being released, but a video store guy recommended it to me as a great war film a few months ago.
So I watched it tonight and I'll say that for a movie with no real stars, it is pretty good. The only actors you may have heard of would be Ben Bratt, James Franco and Joseph Fiennes. I'm a big Joe Fiennes fan, but he doesn't fit as well in this war role as he did in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
It is a good small-unit, precision strike story and it involves cooperation across national lines (U.S. and Filipino), so it may hold some appeal for FFL fans. The buildup to the raid is a bit slow, but the raid is intense enough to justify it.
I wouldn't call it a great war film, but I still recommend The Great Raid.
