Entertaining, Energetic, and Enthralling...
An absolutely uplifting film for anyone trying to own and build their dreams into a reality. It's also morally just, and has a positive outlook for the future. This film is like a perfect mix of a Frank Capra film and an Orson Welles film.
Mixing history with fiction, this film presents a story of morality to the audience without succumbing the the backend of reality. But without being completely corny, there's a constant sense of danger, risk, and melodrama.
There's a muscle to this film. A manliness, without dismissing romanticism. A romanticism without overbearingness. And an absolute delight. Only Sam Fuller can be so entertaining and so informative.
