The director alone should tell you all you need to know about this Errol Flynn set: Raoul Walsh.
Audience Reviews for Objective, Burma!
Typical WWII film suffers from overlenght but has a good cast.
Sure it is exciting and gets the troops going but it is a film of its era..something created to rally the troops in the last years of the conflict in Asia but without full artistic merit.
We jump out of planes and guys shoot at us.
A platoon is sent into Burma to destroy a Japanese radar station during World War II. The execution of their mission could save many lives and ultimately lead to helping the air force identify strategic bombing locations; however, once in Burma the platoon will struggle to make it out and back to safety.
"Even if my mother in-law is in one of them it's a great site."
Raoul Walsh, director of A Private's Affair, A Lion is in the Streets, White Heat, Cheyenne, Hot for Paris, and The Monkey Talks, delivers Objective Burma. The storyline for this movie is fairly good and contains fascinating characters. The script and premise is interesting but fairly common for the war genre. The cast delivers excellent performances and includes Errol Flynn, James Brown, William Prince, George Tobias, and Henry Hull.
"There were some moments there I wished I was someplace else or anywhere else for that matter."
We continue to DVR Errol Flynn pictures and my wife discovered and recorded this movie. I found it entertaining but pretty standard for the genre. I did thoroughly enjoy the characters but didn't find it particularly unique. Overall, this is an entertaining picture for the genre but nothing remarkable.
"When you're dealing with monkeys you've got to expect a few monkeys."
