Return from the River Kwai is a 1989 film directed by Andrew McLaglen. It stars Timothy Bottoms and Nick Tate.[1] It is loosely based on events concerning the Burma-Thailand Death Railway that inspired the earlier film The Bridge on the River Kwai, although both films use separate fictional characters. When released in the United Kingdom, the movie carried a legal warning and disclaimer that it was not at all related to or a sequel to the film Bridge on the River Kwai (1957). Nonetheless, due to legal disputes Return from the River Kwai has not been released in Canada or the USA.

This was the final film for McLaglen, director of many well-known Westerns starring the likes of John Wayne, James Stewart and Dean Martin.
