- The Hidden Soldier review by KW
An interesting film about an American airman who had to parachute from his damaged bomber after taking part in the air raid of Tokyo shortly after Pearl Harbour over China, and his exploits after being taken in by a Widow and her daughter who also card and looked after his injuries. Showed the atrocities the Japanese inflicted on the Chinese locals for any involvement with the enemies of Japan be they be Chinese or foreign. Intermix a love story and you have a very watchable film which keeps you guessing right up to the end. I enjoyed it!
