Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo (1944)



Reviews and Comments

This film chronicles the military training for and execution of the Doolittle Raid, a bombing raid on Japan during World War II. It's an ensemble cast; the film chronicles a few different story threads, all about different soldiers involved with the raid. It's objectively told, with astute attention to detail. It finds and cherishes humanity in the context of war, honoring veterans and telling a good, compelling story in the process.
