Action War Thriller - This is a war drama with all the expected violence and combat action one would expect. While there is not much graphic bloodshed, the violence is rather intense and perhaps too strong for younger viewers.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average It's well paced, nicely photographed, and exciting enough to keep viewers engaged. The problem is that getting to this point can be a chore...Something went wrong here, and the result is a muddled movie that has a solid climax but a poor build-up. In the end, it can be said that The Great Raid tells a great story, but the telling is not as good as the story deserves.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good Here is a war movie that understands how wars are actually fought. After 'Stealth' and its high-tech look-alikes, which make warfare look like a video game, 'The Great Raid' shows the hard work and courage of troops whose reality is danger and death.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average Except for period newsreel footage during the wrap-up, the only impressive feature is stellar production design of downtown Manila, not exactly a virtue to induce audiences to storm the gates.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
From director John Dahl comes the stirring true story of one of the most spectacular rescue missions ever to take place in American history: "the great raid on Cabanatuan," the daring exploit that would liberate more than 500 U.S. Prisoners of War in the face of overwhelming odds. A gripping depiction of human resilience, the film vividly brings to life the personal courage and audacious heroism that allowed a small but stoic band of World War II soldiers to attempt the impossible in the hopes of freeing their captured brothers.

Once a tale shared across the United States, the long-lost story of THE GREAT RAID has been recreated with meticulous authenticity to pay testimony to the many different people, from U.S. commanders to Filipino soldiers to women aid workers to the POWs themselves, who played a part in turning this time of intense hardship and unrelenting danger into a moment of inspiration.
