Not one of the better war movies
24 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I rated this a 5 overall. The first 1/2 of the movie is a 2 and the last 1/2 a 5 so I settled on a 3 overall because of the fact I am IN it! I was an engineer aboard one of the PAPa boats when landing on the beach in one of the war scenes. If it wasn't for that I wouldn't have rated the last half a 9 but probably a 6. If I had a choice of movies to be in this would not be one of them! The first of the movie is a very dull view of a bunch of drunken idiots who make fools of themselves in Japan. THE SECOND HALF DOES HAVE SOME DECENT war scenes when they hit the beach. The movie was filmed while the NAVY was doing maneuvers while in the P I Islands. They didn't have to pay for actors or the NAVY to film the maneuvers.
