Movie Info

During Japan's invasion of the Philippines in 1942, Capt. Henry Lassiter (Lee Bowman), Sgt. Bill Dane (Robert Taylor) and a diverse group of American soldiers are ordered to destroy and hold a strategic bridge in order to delay the Japanese forces and allow Gen. MacArthur time to secure Bataan. When the Japanese soldiers begin to rebuild the bridge and advance, the group struggles with not only hunger, sickness and gunfire, but also the knowledge that there is likely no relief on the way.

Critic Reviews for Bataan

All Critics (3) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (1)

  • Since it was basically a tale of defeat, the nervous producers emphasized heroism, but later, under criticism of fabricating the facts with mechanically packed incidents, MGM was forced to acknowledge "some melodramatic flaws and technical mistakes."

    October 30, 2006 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • An exciting flagwaving big box office Alamo-esque suicide mission World War II film.

    June 2, 2006 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • MGM and the War Department teamed for this flag waving combat drama that influenced a number of future war movies.
