Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Well-intentioned, albeit occasionally clumsily so, Back to Bataan is a rousing war picture featuring an array of fine performances.
There are excellent and exciting battle sequences, as well as one throat-tightening, laudably un-Hollywoodized, glimpse of the infamous Death March. And there are also numerous good performances under the firm, capable direction of Edward Dmytryk.
