Unknown to most, Miramax has got a new war film coming our way this Summer. Starring Benjamin Bratt and Joseph Fiennes, The Great Raid tells the miraculous tale of about a command of US Marines who attempt a suicide mission to save soldiers stuck in a Japanese POW camp during WWII.

The Great Raid Trailer

Set in the Philippines in 1945, The Great Raid tells the true story of the 6th Ranger Battalion, under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Henry Mucci (Bratt) who undertake a daring rescue mission against all odds.

Traveling thirty miles behind enemy lines, the 6th Ranger Battalion aims to liberate over 500 American prisoners-of-war from the notorious Cabanatuan Japanese POW camp resulting in the most audacious rescue ever.

Even though The Thin Red Line showed some of the prevalent hostilities between the American and Japanese troops during World War II, it is a subject not completely looked upon in the more recent war flicks. Trying my hand at a second major in History during college enabled me to cover a few topics about World War II; one being the advanced hatred between American and Japanese soldiers. This hatred went so far that many of the established rules of war were dropped while these two nations went at it.

A film that tells some of the mini - war - stories about this topic would be sweet. Does The Great Raid do this? Not exactly. However, the story will definitely show why you did not want to get captured by the Japanese. Take a first look at The Great Raid by checking out the first trailer by clicking the image above or the link below.
