Cruddy black and white audio but decent video but not great. The story was pretty good and the ending was explosive! A must watch!

Movie Reviews

A good movie very much of its time - But which copy to buy?

"I agree with Hawthorne, FL ... he's right on the money. The 4-star rating is for the movie not for the DVD quality.My problem with the reviews of this film is that Amazon has listed all the reviews underneath all the copies of this film. I have to assume it has fallen into public domain because there are many releases under various cheapo labels. I'd like to see the reviews appear against the specific versions/copies of the film so we can get a better idea of which ones have the better prints. We know from other public domain titles that some of these are going to be OK and others will be a chore to watch. The reviewer from Hingham, MA says his print is so dark as to be almost unusable. I wonder which one he was talking about? It's a shame that these fast buck artists are muddying the water by putting out DVDs that are in worse shape than most VHS tape versions.How about it Amazon? Is there some way you can let us know which ones to go with if we want to see the best prints? I'm not buying this one because there's a chance it's money wasted. If you can point me towards a decent print I'll gladly give you my business."
.........GUNG-HO WAS A HIT MOVIE IN 1943.....

"And I will tell you showed the first offensive ground action taken against the Japanese Army...offensive action...the film/goers, both young and older rushed to see this Marine have to remember America wasn't even aware of year 1991 to the present...IT WAS 1943 and America was galvanized like an iron fist to crush the hated Japanese forces a far, far cry from how American's view of the war in Iraq...the USA was totally UNITED to eradicate Fascism off the face of the earth...WW2 movies were also utilized to educate us, slowly but surely, about two new words being bantered in the press and newsreels..United Nations...that is clearly seen in the final fadeout in a face to face lecture Randolph Scott declares to the the contraditions of other reviews in here, it most certainly was a clarion call...and that stirring fadeout scene was NOT a silly speech; rather, Scott's eloquent preamble of what this new United Nations unity is all about was very compelling, every word was important, every word ...yes, a new social order to prevent world wars in the had a great and uplifting impact on everyone who left the showing...there was no television, no CNN, or cable media world-wide newscasts with hidden agendas, no phoney political correctness...just radio and the WW2 movies...kudos to Universal Studios and Producer: Walter Wanger in releasing, "GUNG HO"...Hollywood had much to do to keep morale up all throughout the loooong war, overseas and on the homefront...everyone pitched in to win WW2, in direct contrast to the fragmentation of our country today, which is wrought by the politically correct, ego/politicians and dilletantes which we have in today's America...this is a wonderful and fast paced movie in 1943 built around the US Marine Raiders [3 Marine Raider Bns]'s an icon movie of the WW2 era and a heroic/tribute to those who SAVED the American way......Semper Fi, Mac.....SSGT CHRIS SARNO-USMC"
The Raiders were trained to operate as a guerrilla outfit

"I'll agree with some of the reviews about the movie being a little cornball.Col. Carlson was sent to China by our government as an observer. He was not a Communist as implied. The Chinese term "Gung Ho" is still used by people in our military today. Remember, China and Russia were allies of ours in World War II. My high school coach was an observer with the Russian Army and he was no Communist.President Roosevelt's son James was executive officer of Carlson's Raiders and a good Marine. The Raiders were no more blood thirsty than any other Marine with a rifle in combat in WWII.I would have liked to seen more of the training the Raiders went through."
