Hell In The Pacific is a rewarding, thought-provoking experience, let down only by its ending.

The acting is acceptable but is as extravagant as the script, and Boorman's direction is repetitive and ponderous, beating that single antiwar theme to death long before the adversaries do.

Hell in the Pacific grapples with the arresting relationships of character, communication and survival, but succeeds only fitfully in dramatically projecting these elemental qualities.
