An intense watch of a very tense and difficult situation for a group of British soldiers in the jungle. it really gets deep into the psychological affects of war and primarily the almost impossible situation they are in, capturing the fear, disillusionment, suspicion, frustration and anger that exemplified the individual as well as the group during the second World War. This has a fine male British cast.

British soldiers in Burma in WWII - a charming study of personalities and how they may change when faced with danger. I found this a very positive representation of the Japanese in a war film so soon after the end of that war.

Really enjoyed this. The acting from Laurence Harvey and Richard Harris was fantastic and made up the for the films slightly static feel.

A decent version of the Willis Hall play, but by sticking too close to the original material also hamstrings the film somewhat. Everything feels too staged and static, from the settings to the conversations and situations. The cast is good though, Laurence Harvey in particular, but the juicy central idea could certainly be ready for a remake.

A brilliant movie-quite horrable situation though
