Poster for To End All Wars

Ciarán McMenamin, Robert Carlyle (“The Full Monty,” “Angela’s Ashes”), and Kiefer Sutherland (“24,” “Flatliners”) star in the real-life story of WWII POW Ernest Gordon, author of Through the Valley of the Kwai. A morally redemptive core message of biblical forgiveness, turning the other cheek, and striving after Jesus’s teachings as taught in the Bible is clear throughout the film which chronicles the brutal years that Gordon and other Allied POWs faced while forced to build a 400km plus railroad through the jungle.

While certainly not a film for everyone due to the vast amounts of blood, gore, war-related violence, and language, the R-rated “To End All Wars” promises to satisfy mature viewers by its technical flawlessness and redeeming message of striving to be Christ-like despite even the most deplorable of circumstances.

Scene from ‘To End All Wars’Theaters nationwide will begin showing it during August/September 2002. “To End All Wars” was produced by David L. Cunningham and Jack Hafer of Argyll Film Partners in association with Gummshoe Productions, Ltd. and Pray for Rain Pictures, Inc.
