One Teeny Tiny Reason to See Great Raid

Typical of Hollywood war films, we can expect to be served the usual heaping of America the benevolent power. I'd never see Great Raid if it weren't for Cesar Montano. And for this review by Nick Schager:

...Nonetheless, the most memorable sights in this stodgy film aren't the real-life visages of WWII heroes being welcomed home after years of POW hell but, rather, the sight of Filipino captain Juan Pajota (Cesar Montano)—after successfully aiding Mucci's campaign against the hated, racist Japanese—giving a laughable "job well done" bow to his fellow indigenous comrades before disappearing into the exotic landscape from whence he came.
