Movie Review: Hell in the Pacific

Best Feature: Really nice job of in medias res and of avoiding exposition, plus Lee Marvin was fun to watch.

Biggest Question: How did they manage to hang out together for a month (longer?) without either of them ever learning a word of the other’s language?

Too Long By: 20 minutes.

Haiku Synopsis:

On island marooned,

Old enemies become friends

And then they blow up.

Grade: 7/10 (loses a full point for the ending).
