This flick follows a squad of GIs with the task of bring back a lone paratrooper back home in this epic WWII masterpiece. Can't believe its taken me this long to acknowledge it but here it is. Take a gander at the trailer and see what you think. This is one of the greatest WWII flicks ever made so if you don't know anything about it, get your ass out there and watch it already!
This low-budget flick tells the tale of a Dauntless crew that participated in the fateful attack on the Jap carrier fleet at Midway and a DBY crew looking for them when they ditched into the drink. Although the acting is mediocre, its got heart and the cgi effects are pretty good. Take a gander at the trailer below and see what you think.
"For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above
and beyond the call of duty as a rifleman with Company K, Third Battalion, First Marines, First Marine Division, in action against enemy
Japanese forces on Okinawa Shima in the Ryūkyū Chain, May 2, 1945. Dug
in with another Marine on the point of the perimeter defense after
waging a furious assault against a strongly fortified Japanese position,
Private First Class Foster and comrade engaged in a fierce hand grenade duel with infiltrating enemy soldiers. Suddenly an enemy grenade landed beyond reach in the foxhole. Instantly diving on the deadly missile, Private First Class Foster
absorbed the exploding charge in his own body, thereby protecting the
other Marine from serious injury. Although mortally wounded as a result
of his heroic action, he quickly rallied, handed his own remaining two
grenades to his comrade and said, "Make them count." Stouthearted and
indomitable, he had unhesitatingly relinquished his own chance of
survival that his fellow Marine might carry on the relentless fight
against a fanatic enemy, and his dauntless determination, cool decision
and valiant spirit of self-sacrifice in the face of certain death
reflect the highest credit upon Private First Class Foster and in the United States Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life in the service of his country."
