Farewell To The King Review


Good
I thought I was being all clever when I thought I'd compare Farewell to the King to Apocalpyse Now and The Mosquito Coast. Little did I know that director John Milius wrote the script for Apocalypse. Oh well.

King is a story about an American soldier (Nick Nolte, looking a lot like he does now in real life), who deserts his WWII P.O.W. march on an island in Borneo and escapes into the jungle. Years later (the war is still raging), he's discovered by British soldiers: He's now a "king" of the local people -- headhunters -- and he no longer wears a shirt. The Brits convince him to join the fight agains the Japanese again, and he reluctantly agrees, training the soldiers for a giant battle ahead.

The Whistle Blower Review


Weak
If you're going to build a Cold War thriller an implicate a massive government conspiracy along the way, try not to set your movie entirely in police stations and hotel rooms. This tepid Michael Caine drama doesn't get much past the excitement level of your usual county fair (Caine doesn't believe his son committed suicide! It's a cover-up!). Still, some fine performances from Caine, James Fox, John Gielgud, and others make this less painful than a poke to the eye.

Empire Of The Sun Review


Excellent
1941 notwithstanding (and we're all still trying to forget it), Empire of the Sun was Steven Spielberg's first big trip to World War II. For Spielberg, it was an unlikely way to go about it -- examining the British viewpoint of the Japanese incursion into China.

Christian Bale stars as Jim, a British kid born in Shanghai, the son of upper crust expatriates who feel the rising tide of Japanese-Chinese aggression will never reach there strata. Of course it does, and as the Japanese overtake Shanghai, Jim's family is torn asunder, scattering in the chaos. But eventually, like Ben-Hur, Jim returns home to discover his house in ruins and his loved ones gone, so he does the only thing he can think of -- surrender to the Japanese. Only the Japanese don't even want the worthless kid, until finally, after hooking up with a seedy scam artist named Basie (John Malkovich) and his flunkie (Joe Pantoliano), does he manage to get himself arrested and thrown into an internment camp where at least there is the promise of a daily potato and some gruel.
