Combat in the Twilight Zone.
27 June 2014 | by (Norway now) – See all my reviews

I just saw this last night and rather liked it.

First, the casting:

Eddie Albert was a real-life war hero who pulled Marines off a submerging reef at Tarawa under direct Japanese fire.

And Alita Valli was a fascinating lady of intrigue - The Third Man - in a sympathetic role.

Eddie Albert made what could have been a farcical misfire into something believable and compelling, regarding shell shock - ptsd or something worse.

The costuming was convincing, including the WW1 leggings and Springfield rifle with LONG bayonet. The documentary footage of the rail gun was well picked and gave you an idea of how intimidating a railway gun could be, even if it had a very low rate of fire. (I have 2 of the HO scale Bachmann railway guns, with the other military railway trucks, for when my younger son is old enough.)

And the ending seemed logical, although Saunders' long-range marksmanship with a Thompson seemed ... extraordinary.

Finally, on this centennial of the start of World War 1, the documentary (and feature film) footage of that terrible war is most appropriate.
