If you are:
1. A fan of 40's and 50's propagandistic war movies from U. S. perspective.

2. You are a Bryan Adams fan (ie) you just love those cliches!

Then you will enjoy this box office disaster (80 million to make, 10 million in tickets.)

If you want your concentration camp movies to have a bit of a dose of reality, you will ignore this pathetic mess and (perhaps) take a look at the following items:

1. Bridge on the River Kwai (David Lean, 1957)

2. Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence (Nagisa Oshima, 1983)

and on a European note:

3. Son of Saul (Laszlo Nemes, 2015)

4. The Captain (Robert Schwentke, 2017)

One super movie!

Touching movie, especially since it is actually based on real facts: the horrific Baatan Death March. 76,000 prisoners (12,000 Americans, the remainder Filipinos) started the 60 mile gruesome journey that lasted 5 days. 5,200 Americans and 10,000 Fillipinos died along the way—bayoneted, shot, beheaded, left to die on the side of the road, starved or by the “sun treatment” (hours under the baking sun with no water). The 50,000 survivors, diseased and starved, lived 3 years in a concentration camp designed to hold 10,000 prisoners. Many died under the Japanese brutal treatment: 20,000 Filipinos and 1,600 Americans. A must watch. Teach your children true History: let them watch this movie and get more info here: NOTICE: Attempts to censor (“Report this”) my comments will be fiercely fought under the aegis of American Libraries’ beloved principles: Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Read, Intellectual Freedom.
