Movie Info

In this wartime drama set during WW II, a US Army major is assigned to travel to China with an eight-man demolition team and destroy all bridges and roads needed by the Japanese. They are assisted by two Chinese fellows. At one point the major blows of a mountain bridge that leaves thousands stranded. His escort is outraged by the major's lack of sympathy. The major's antipathy towards his hosts increases when two of his men are trampled by a hoard of starving Chinese who run to grab rations. Later two more of his men die at the hands of Chinese military deserters, prompting the vengeful major to order the destruction of an entire village. Hundreds of innocent people die, and at last the Chinese guide leaves them in disgust. In the end the major understands the wrong he has done.

Audience Reviews for The Mountain Road

  • Nov 05, 2010
    This is a decent WWII movie. It stars James Stewart as a Major in the US military during the war against Japan in China. His crew are demolition experts and are assigned to blow up some bridges and a supply depo before the Japanese can access them. But the real danger is never the Japanese army. In fact the real danger comes from the locals in China who are bandits or starving villages that are desperate for food. Stewart's character falls for a Chinese woman but conflicts with her and the Chinese culture. Plus they butt heads when it comes dealing with the locals. Overall this was a much more darker war film then I expected going into it. Stewart gives a solid performance as ususal. The explosions and action sequences are decent in this as well. A film worth checking out if you enjoy war movies or are a James Stewart fan.
