Reviews of the Guadalcanal DiaryOutstanding recounting of the U.S. Marine invasion of Guadalcanal Island. Thankfully free of much of the harsh jingoistic tone and phony heroics so evident in films such as Ray Enright's "Gung Ho!" of the same year (although some elements of that do manage to creep in), virtually everything in this film works--Reed Hadley's sometimes sonorous but nonetheless sensitive narration; uniformly fine performances; a script that, while seeming somewhat dated and familiar now, nonetheless has a sharp edge to it, with several of the characters actually being quite well-drawn; top-notch battle scenes, both large-scale and close-in, that don't have the staginess and precisely rehearsed look unfortunately common to many war films; some welcome humor of the kind that any current or former GI would recognize; and the crisp, sharp editing associated more with Warner Bros. than 20th Century-Fox, which made it. The film does, in fact, have a definite Warners look and feel to it, and could easily be mistaken as a work by legendary Warners director Raoul Walsh, although it was actually directed by Lewis Seiler--like Walsh a Warners alumnus, and while Seiler is not in Walsh's league, this is far and away his best and most accomplished picture (and if any of you can figure out what the hell poster Christopher Mulrooney is talking about in a preceding review of this film, I wish you'd tell me). A previous poster has mentioned that the picture has some rather glaring historical inaccuracies, and I have no doubt that he's correct. Still, this is an exciting and riveting film--and, surprisingly enough, often a quite touching one, a quality not often associated with war pictures--that I believe truly deserves its reputation as one of the best war films to come out of Hollywood.
