      Movie Info

      As he retires from the U.S. Navy, Admiral William J. Halsey (James Cagney) recalls the most daunting challenge in his career: the Battle of Guadalcanal in 1942. Ordered to replace a close friend as fleet admiral, Halsey faces a wily and fierce adversary in Japan's Admiral Yamamoto, and spends the grueling months of the campaign confounding expectations of both the enemy and his own staff. Pained by the losses he knows they will endure, Halsey pushes his forces to the brink.

      • Sep 21, 2021

        James Cagney as Admiral Bull Halsey in a film intended to commemorate the famous WW2 South Pacific Battle of Guadalcanal a mere 18 years after the fact. The work is ambitious in that it attempts to dramatize the tension a behind-the-scenes armchair general must feel after all the pieces are in place and must only needs to play out their parts. Unfortunately, there is hardly any restraint in the reverential tone that's allowed to run amuck. Ruins what could have served as instructional at the very least and now is only sadly amateurish and hackneyed.

        Jimmy's fine but this is plodding and dull.
