4.0 out of 5 stars Three WW2's and a Vietnam entry! Nov. 26 2013
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
TCM's "War Collection" has three solid WW2 movies in it and a Vietnam entry by the Duke.The WW2's show their patriotic zeal in every frame,which is typical of that era,but all are good watchable films.The Green Berets,was John Wayne's thumbing of the nose to the anti-war hippie crowd of the 60s.He had a lot of guts for doing it and I,like many including the Vietnam vets,admired him for it.
Most films have few if any extras with them and all four are presented on two dreaded double sided discs.It is my least favoured way of releasing movies,as if you didn't know by now.
The first is Bataan(released June/43).It stars,among others,Robert Taylor,George Murphy,Thomas Mitchell and Lloyd Nolan.This one finds the guys defending a lone bridge to stop the Japanese wave streaming down the Bataan peninsula.They consistently blast the bridge,as their foes continually try to rebuild it.It becomes a tension filled game of attrition with the film ending as Taylor is taking on the enemy by himself.Watch for a small part played by Desi Arnaz.
The next is Back to Bataan(released May/45),starring,among others,John Wayne and Anthony Quinn.The Duke leads a rag tag group of Filipino scouts to harass the Japanese.Quinn is the grandson of a Filipino national hero and is at first reluctant to carry his grandfathers torch,but by the end he is in the fight all the way.This film wasn't quite as good as Bataan,but it features quite a few actual Bataan Death March survivors liberated from a prion camp in Mindanao by American Forces.It also briefly shows an encounter with the march itself,and the Duke and his mens inability to be able to do anything about it.
Destination Tokyo(released Dec/43)stars,among others,Cary Grant,John Garfield and Alan Hale.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely War movie weekend! June 30 2014
Format:DVD
I had a great time watching these 4 movies. Hadn't seen the Bataan movies before or knew any of the history of that island. Enjoyed watching the Green Berets and Destination Tokyo all over again.

4.0 out of 5 stars All in all, a good collection June 21 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
These are 4 traditional war pictures, with 3 set in WWII and one (The Green Berets) set in Vietnam. They all deliver good action with Bataan being the lesser of the four movies as it is pretty much a "whose gonna get it next" kind of film with the action not really moving from one location.

They do not make them like this anymore
John Wayne is great as always but Bataan stands out as one of the most patriotic films ever
