1.0 out of 5 stars Abombinable show, man., 17 Jun 2011
It's said that you should never let the truth get in the way of a good story. All those involved in this shambles of a movie were quite happy to cast the truth aside but forgot to replace it with anything approaching a good story, which is nothing short of criminal seeing as it was all there to begin with in Slavomir Rawicz's astonishingly good book The Long Walk.
