Moral Integrity in the War

While in the front, a bullet grazes Sgt. Saunders' leg and he is sent to Orre to a hospital. He gets a lift in the ambulance in a military convoy that is transporting a wounded soldier. Saunders meets Captain August, a doctor that lost the motivation of his profession; the gorgeous nurse Lt. Ann Hunter, who is his lover; and the coward driver Jones. When the convoy is bombed by the Germans in Orre, August, Ann and Jones leave the patient behind to seek protection. The bitter Saunders is bothered with the situation and decides to drive the ambulance to the closest hospital in a town under siege of the Germans since the soldier is in critical condition. His attitude changes the behavior of August and Jones in the end.

"The Walking Wounded" is a film with a story of moral integrity in the war. The stubborn and bitter Saunders is a veteran soldier that sees the wounded soldier could be any of his comrades in the squad or himself as he highlights to Captain August. His action driving through the German troop while the Allied artillery is bombing is at least reckless, but shows his strong character and will. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Morto Vivo" ("The Undead")
