      kevin w Less than admirable take on the survival of one George Tweed, USN, trapped on the island of Guam when the Japanese took over at the beginning of WW2. The story is straight forward enough: the Spanish speaking islanders risk their lives hiding him, saving him. I thought the story should've focused on that slight detail but instead we look in on the white guy. Jeffrey Hunter gives his all, but it's not enough to rescue this sad coda to the drama of the Pacific theater. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Geographically inaccurate! It was shot in the Philippines with Filipino actors who spoke Tagalog but it was said that the setting is in Guam. Although, it was a good movie and has truth in it. This movie has shown real sufferings both the Philippines and other countries by the hand of the Japanese during the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Underrated war film indeed. No Man is An Island is probably one of the most unheard of war films yet which is generally sad because this is probably one of the best war films I've seen in quite some time. In this 1962 film comes the story of George Tweed, inspired by a true story of a solider who was taken care by a family in Guam in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, his amazing story in the brink of 31 months is quite amazing. The production value may seem a little low, but that's not what drives the film, the great acting and dialogue suck you into a movie and a character more then any other war movie I've seen, its not all action, in fact its more of a personal experience of hard times for the people of Guam, you feel like your the character of George Tweed in the best way possible and somewhat feel emotionally involved in everything around it, the movie is quite humorous at times yet can be really heartbreaking to watch. As much for flaws, its very shady in production value, and the direction is somewhat sloppy kind of, especially with two directors. I do recommend people to see it, this movie definitely deserves a remake as well, and if not try to find it, worth watching. 9/10 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member This was set in Guam but filmed in the Philippines. Some actual war footage was used; for a WWII based film with a low budget, it was very well done - the story was a true tear-jerker. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member if u think to be everything that mean u hv not pass true dueres in life. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews
