John Ford United States, 1945

Cineastic's rating of the film They Were Expendable

An exquisitely shot film with the technical sagacity that Ford is known for. However, it is made in a more semidocumentary style as opposed to the expressionist/romantic that is exhibited in some of his better known films. Nevertheless, I did enjoy this picture very much and it's essential for any John Ford fan or anyone interested in the Pacific Theatre during World War II.
