4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent war story, not so great love story Aug. 20 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Never So Few is an excellent WWII adventure that deals with a part of the war that very few other movies even go near. Captain Tom Reynolds is the leader of a force of Americans and Kachins, Burmese natives, who wreak havoc on Japanese forces in the Burmese jungle in whichever way they can. During an ordered vacation, Reynolds falls in love as well as picking up a doctor, a driver, and much needed medical supplies. This is a very good movie that suffers because of an unneccesary love story. I know this part was inserted to draw people in, but the movie is much better when it deals with Reynolds and his unit. The action scenes are very well done at the beginning and the end while most of the middle portion is occupied by the relationship between Reynolds and Carla. Even with the love story, this is still a very enjoyable film.
Never So Few boasts an impressive cast that works well together. Frank Sinatra in the role of Capt. Tom Reynolds is very good as the leader of the Americans and Kachins harassing the Japanese. Gina Lollobrigida is decent as Carla, but as I said I think the love story was not needed. Reynolds' men include Richard Johnson as right-hand man Lt. Demortimer, Steve McQueen in an excellent supporting role as Cpl. Bill Ringa, Peter Lawford as doctor Captain Travis, Dean Jones as radioman Sergeant Norby, Charles Bronson as Navajo Indian Sergeant Danforth, and Philip Ahn as Nautang, the leader of the Kachins. The film also stars Brian Donlevy in a great supporting role, Paul Henreid, and Robert Bray. I really do hope that Never So Few gets released on DVD. I watched the letterbox version of this movie on TCM so I can't answer for the VHS, but if you like Sinatra and WWII action movies then you'll love Never So Few.

In 1959,no one heard of Vietnam or the struggles with the Indo-China question,or at least the American public did not know much about the Far East and its complicated politics. The Excellent "Never So Few" really comes out of nowhere to become a topnotch war film and predicts the Vietnam War in some of its implications.The director John Sturges has always been a great action director, for this is the director that gave us the wonderful classic, "The Great Escape," among many very good action films and the action sequences in this movie are vibrant, real, and startling. The cast is excellent. Frank Sinatra has never been better save "The Manchurian Candidate," probably his best role and of course Maggio in "From Here to Eternity," which he won an Academy Award for.He is totally convincing here as the guerilla officer leader of the native forces in Burma with some "advisors" and the similarities are many to Vietnam, when the sides blurr and decisions are made out of necessities over military orders.Other standouts in the cast went on to become superstars. Steve McQueen steals many scenes he is in and gives portents of stardom to come. John Sturges uses him beautifully here and of course again in "The Great Escape." Others include Charles Bronson before he got the Death Wish, Dean Jones, Richard Johnson( One of Kim Novak's husbands for a short time but here and excellent actor), and Gina Lollobrigida, who brings the action to a stop and the romantic scenes don't ring as true as the rest of the film. But overall, "Never So Few" is an action film that holds up fairly well, telegraphs future movie stars, and has an epic stature it really earns. Sturges was one of our best action directors and "Never So Few" is one of his better efforts. Re-dicover it. A great movie of action and substance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never So Few May 7 2000
By Rob
Format:VHS Tape
This is much more than a war movie. Made years before Viet Nam became a quagmire, it examines how politics plays a dirty hand in war. When Sinatra & Co. fight the "wrong" bad guys it leads to a confrontation with the brass that is so topical it should be required viewing for any politician considering sending our troops into conflict. On another level it entertains as a great action movie and the romance between Sinatra and Lollabrigida really rocks. This movie also has one of the deepest casts of sixties star power ever assembled. Check it out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sinatra in the Jungle Aug. 30 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie tells the story of Allied forces in Burma in W.W.II fighting the invading Japanese Army. Things get more complicated with the interaction between those Allied forces and some Chinese factions. A very good cast, many of whom went on to star-studded careers, Sinatra dominates. This is a bit of a reminder that Sinatra could be a very good actor when he had a good script and director.
Very entertaining.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good May 14 1999

The movie was very good, Steven McQueen gave one of his best performances. Some little details could have been changed but all in all it was worth the money and time to watch it.
