Written by the author Leon Uris centering on a small group of marines of Danny (Tab Hunter), Ski (William Campbell), Speedy (Fess Parker) and Andy (Aldo Ray) and their love life's.
A nice slice of life story about the marines, sifting from one character to another. The battles take a while to get going, but end up looking incredibly realistic for the time this was made.
Excellent, interesting and at times quite moving story of a group of US Marines from basic training to the War in the Pacific. The fighting itself takes second place to the exploration and the characters personal lives. Great performances from Van Heflin, Aldo Ray, Nancy Olson and particularly James Whitmore as the Battallion Sgt. Major.
yet another WWii marines pic post WWII
Battle Cry is a fine film. It is about a group of young Marines have adventures in love and war. The battle sequences are outstanding. Van Heflin and Aldo Ray give excellent performances. The screenplay is well written. Raoul Walsh did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the drama and romance. Battle Cry is a must see.
Large scale WWII drama mixes battle sequences with personal stories. Good acting from a large cast.
Solid war drama despite being too long and a little overly romantic about the the recruits progress through the campaign.
Fine World War II film, good cast headed by Van Heflin and Aldo Ray, who particularly stands out. There are some outstanding battle sequences. It is slowed down at times by some dramatic interludes, a little more editing would have been a plus for the film, which is way overlong at two and a half hours.
i really like the actors in it and i thought the scenes with the battles and marines fighting were really good. and whenever "Sam Huxley" talks it was good, too. but the first 2/3 of it was surprising sappy. i got a bit tired of all the love talk... and i'm a broad!
I love this movie, as much as I loved the book, obviously a lot of the story had to be left out to keep the story interesting, but it was very well done and well acted!!
