Benjamin Bratt has accused Hollywood of being too politically correct after holding up the release of his new movie The Great Raid for two years.

Bratt suspects the start of the war in Iraq - which coincided with the war movie's planned release - caused it to be postponed. But he can't understand the decision, because The Great Raid is set in World War II, a "just war".

He says, "It probably got held up because we were newly in Iraq when it was done, and nobody wanted to see a movie about a war... no matter that it was the depiction of something heroic that was done during what is perceived as a just war."
