The Great Raid
This hat makes me feel like a plaasjapie...
Set during the final days of World War II, a group of 500 prisoners are held by the Japanese. They are the survivors of thousands who were captured but died. Now, as time runs out for them, a group of Rangers mount an ambitious plan to rescue them before their execution. Although listed as a 2005 release, this film was on the shelf for over two years, and reviews have been mixed.
