The Great Raid

Telling the story of one of the most successful rescue missions in US armed forces history, in which Army Rangers raided a Philippine POW camp freeing more than 500 survivors of the infamous Bataan Death March. Capt Robert Prince (James Franco) devised a plan to sneak 150 rangers behind enemy lines, past thousands of Japanese troops, only to get to the heavily fortified camp, Cabanatuan. A little slow in getting to the point, but none-the-less an incredible true war story. Also stars Joseph Fiennes and kiwi, Marton Csokas.
