Post-war propaganda of the highest order. A zealous Hollywood tribute to the courage and tenacity of the allied infantry in Burma near the end of WWII. Though not in the same league with classics like Objective, Burma!, Merrill's Marauders surely inspired more than a few enlistments when it was released in March of 1962.

Truly inspiring perhaps in it's day, Merrill's Marauders doesn't translate well. There are far too many better depictions of war that have been made since. It doesn't even match up to Objective Burma which covered much of the same ground.

Film is good except it does not point out the problem of food as in 1943 the Army had dropped production of the 10 in 1 high calorie ration as a cost cutting measure. This haunted te Marauders and others thereafter.

Os filmes de Samuel Fuller não precisam de muito tempo para me conquistar: "Merril's Marauders" à (C) um filme de guerra para homens de barba rija e, nos primeiros 25 minutos, já despachou duas sequências de batalha capazes de rivalizar com o melhor que se fez no gà (C)nero. O mestre não perde tempo e obtà (C)m sempre a intensidade e o drama que quer. Tirando partido dos previlà (C)gios oferecidos pela produção em grande da Warner Bros., "Merril's Marauders" conta a história de um batalhão de bravos que avança pela Birmânia, contra tudo e contra todos, para impedir as tropas japonesas de se unirem às alemãs, na Segunda Guerra Mundial. Talvez tambà (C)m porque se trata de um filme da Warner, as mortes dos soldados americanos são sempre mais dignas que as dos japoneses. Nada que impeça Samuel Fuller de fazer um filme claramente patriótico, mas sempre sofisticado e muito mais complexo do que possa parecer na sinopse. Vale a pena ver nem que seja para observar uns quantos paralelos interessantes com "A Barreira Invisível". Ainda não à (C) desta que vejo um Samuel Fuller que seja pior que "muito bom".

**1/2 (out of four)

Pretty good war film with Jeff Chandler as a leader of a group soldiers who are trying to build the Burma Road while fighting the Japanese during World War II.
