As a war film, it's weak, but thematically, it is significant for introducing the two-generational conflicts that defined most of John Wayne's features, war, adventures, and Westerns.
Jingoistic, flag waving John Wayne action, circa 1942.
While the plot is a clunky and the message heavyhanded, the acting is generally good.
The film's best scenes are reserved for the 1930s style airplane dog-fights.
Great, hokey action and romance set in WW2 China
