Set during the Pacific War against the Japanese, this WW2 drama discerns between achieving one's mission at any cost versus preserving the lives under one's command and enforcing discipline through fear as opposed to mutual respect.
True life story of Guy Gabaldon, a Los Angeles Hispanic boy raised in the 1930s by a Japanese-American foster family. Later, during the war, as his foster parents are interned at a camp for Japanese Americans, Gabaldon's ability to speak Japanese helps him become a lone-operating Marine hero. During the bloody capture of the island of Saipan, he convinces 800 Japanese to surrender after their general commits suicide.Written by
My father recommended this movie and I found a copy that I had privilege to watch. It was a great movie that was touching and moving to watch. I never heard of this Hispanic man who was a hero and I think that it should be updated and played today for the newer generation today. This movie starts from the beginning to the end on what the main character went through and why he did what he did. It has much family value no matter what race or color a person is. The war scenes were magnificent even considering the year that the movie was made. I think that if this movie were remade for this day and age with all of the facts in order, that it would be better than some of the war movies that are out now because it is in fact a true story. If you have a chance to see this movie, I rate it a "10".
