A searing portrait of war and prejudice, 'Only the Brave' takes you on a haunting journey into the hearts and minds of the forgotten heroes of WWII - the Japanese-American 100th/442nd. In 1941, when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, overnight Japanese Americans were put into internment camps for the duration of the war. Determined to prove their loyalty, 1400 Japanese Americans successfully petitioned the government to serve becoming the 100th Infantry Battalion. They were sent to North Africa, Italy and finally France were they performed an impossibly-dangerous rescue of the Texas 36th Division. During their two years of combat these men received an unparalleled 21 Medals of Honor, 9,486 Purple Hearts, 8 Presidential Citations, 53 Distinguished Service Crosses, 588 Silver Stars and 5,200 Bronze stars - making them the most decorated unit of their size in American military history. This is their story. Written by
I am a great lover of the WWII film genre and have to say that this is the worse one I have ever seen, if it was on very late night on TV and I flicked it on, it would be flicked of pretty quick - unfortunately i bought the DVD so felt i had to watch it to the end - which I did with a lot of fast forwarding - it won't be watched again.
I think they tried to bring you in along the lines of "getting to know the men" by flash backs to their live before joining up - i don't need to see this every five minutes, either put the "family" part at the start or don't bother.
the music was so "TV film" i almost laughed but i couldn't as i had paid money out - the battle scenes where non existent barring in mind this is supposed to focus on the battle which suffered the loss of nearly half of its rosterover 800 casualties, including 121 deadwhile rescuing 211 members of the 36th Infantry Division's 1st Battalion, 141st Infantry, which had been surrounded by German forces in the Vosges mountains since 24 October.
