The NYT at the time of its release called it "a stirring picture of a small but vital aspect of the war and ... it is a moving remembrance of things past". DVD Talk concludes, "They Were Expendable gives you John Wayne, John Ford in a World War II movie, so in and of itself it should be something on your watch list. But it goes a little deeper and a little more nuanced in the component of the war that they tell the story about". Rotten Tomatoes has a critics score of 89%.
Not a John Wayne fan, so would probably skip this one.ReplyDelete
