Critic Reviews for Merril's Marauders

All Critics (3)

The film is somewhat unique for its time, but its approach strips the characters of much personality.

Audience Reviews for Merril's Marauders

Truly inspiring perhaps in it's day, Merrill's Marauders doesn't translate well. There are far too many better depictions of war that have been made since. It doesn't even match up to Objective Burma which covered much of the same ground.

Post-war propaganda of the highest order. A zealous Hollywood tribute to the courage and tenacity of the allied infantry in Burma near the end of WWII. Though not in the same league with classics like Objective, Burma!, Merrill's Marauders surely inspired more than a few enlistments when it was released in March of 1962.
