David Anthony Smith,
As tough as "Bataan" was, this film deals with American guerillas, and their Filipino allies, fighting the Japanese late in WW II in The Philippines. Characters could have been a little better drawn, there were a few cliches, and the sacrifice of the cynical leader at the end was not entirely convincing. However, this is generally a good war film, and the final brutal 15 minutes of running combat and then final climactic assault by the Japanese was most memorable. I recommend this film.
