Rating: B+ -- Though largely fictionalized, this is a moving report of the defense of the Pacific Island base, with strong emphasis on the heroic gallantry of three Manrines, played by Robert Preston, Brian Donlevy, and William Bendix. Full Review

Rating: 6/10 -- It's fairly exciting action cinema... [that] falls apart on the generally anemic, one-note characterisations and the lack of any particularly memorable performance. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- A good, old-fashioned war movie, the kind of movie you watch with your dad on a Saturday afternoon. Full Review

Product Description:

In November 1941, Major Caton takes command of the small Marine garrison on Wake Island. His tendency toward spit and polish upsets the men's tropical lassitude, but Pearl Harbor changes everything. Soon the island is attacked and the Marines pull together day by day; but how long can they hold out? -- Description provided by TMDb
