    I love movies based on history and this is an amazing story. Japanese were so cruel and this movie captured what history books never documented

    This is a movie loosely based on the most successful rescue mission undertaken by US during WW2. The movie is 30-45 minutes too long; it covers too many angles, a love story, an underground resistance smuggling medicine into the POW camps, the Filipino guerrilla resistance and finally the rescue mission. The raid itself was exciting and enjoyable the rest of the movie is boring.

    Even though I'm real sensitive about what people say about the Japanese, McCain made me think of the POWs.

    They did a good job and portrayed the raid without trying to revise history.

    Although many critics obviously didn't find much to like about this movie, I found it very interesting. I had never heard of this event before, and was happy to see a fairly recent movie using fact-based events where the Americans were actually the heroes! Perhaps that is exactly why those critics DIDN'T like it. I generally have agreed with Roger Ebert, and was glad to see that HE gave it a "FRESH" rating.
