Good action scenes and some unhackneyed humor make the film worth seeing. Full Review

Rating: C+ -- Overlong and remiss World War II action/romance film that never moves without a cliché for the stellar cast to kick around. Full Review

Apr 1, 2010
Rating: 2.5/4 -- The love story is commonplace and hampered by a noticeable lack of chemistry between Sinatra and Lollobrigida -- the war material is similarly humdrum until a late-inning development. Full Review

an important drama, well-worth your time for the excellent cast. Essential viewing for any Steve McQueen fan. The story does drag on a bit. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Capt. Tom Reynolds (Frank Sinatra), a charismatic guerrilla fighter, heads a combined British and American force assigned to repel Japanese invaders in Burma during World War II while training the Kachin natives in his style of warfare. During quieter moments, he finds time to romance Carla Vesari (Gina Lollabrigida), the voluptuous paramour of enigmatic local businessman Nikko Regas (Paul Henreid). Dispensing with the niceties of seduction, Reynolds explains to his conquest, "I kissed you, you kissed me back. I got the message." Although ordered to remain in Burma, Reynolds gets annoyed when his Kachin friends are attacked by Chinese nationalists commanded by Chiang Kai-shek. Defying orders, he leads his guerrilla unit over the border into China for some particularly brutal payback. As a result, he will have to deal with legal retribution, possibly a court-martial, upon his return. Meanwhile, Carla must decide whether to stay with Regas or leave for a new life in the U.S. with Reynolds.
