MPAA rating: R; for strong war violence and brief language.
Based on the true story of American Rangers who rescue the survivors of the Bataan Death March from the Cabanatuan Prison Camp during WWII. When the Philippines fell to the Japanese, the remnants of Gen. MacArthur's Army were forced down the Bataan Penninsula where they were surrounded and cutoff with no hope of rescue. They were starving and dying of disease. Gen. Wainwright eventually surrendered and the troops were marched off to prison. Along the way thousands died or were murdered by the Japanese. They were taken to Camp O'Donnell and to Cabanatuan Prison Camps where they were starved and beaten. When MacArthur invaded the Philippines he made it a priority to rescue the remaining prisoners still alive in Japanese hands.
