Great Raid, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Stirring World War II drama set in the Philippines which tells the real-life story of the daring mission to rescue 500 American POWs from a Japanese prison camp by a vastly outnumbered joint team of U.S. Army rangers (led by Benjamin Bratt and James Franco) and Filipino resistance fighters. Directed by John Dahl, the movie has an old-fashioned patriotic feel, and while the acting and writing are less than stellar, it hardly detracts from what is a tremendous tale of heroism and sacrifice. Intense wartime violence, including torture, executions and scenes of burning bodies, some vulgar language, profanity and ethnic slurs. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
