Boring, shot like a TV movie, and miscast. Using the same team that made the masterpiece Patton without great writing, Coppola, great directing, Franklin Schaffner, great DPing, Fred Koenekamp, this film does not interrogate the subject so much as it drags us along. Gregory Peck is not a great actor, and his MacArthur is one note, as all his performances are. Joseph Sargent made few good films, and only one great, The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3. A blech film than died quicker than the army left on Bataan to rot.
