The budget was so low on this picture that the Chinese "tank" that attacks the patrol is actually made of plywood. See more »

They all look alike to me.
Don't you know how to tell the difference, Fat Paul?
He's South Korean when he's running with you. He's North Korean when he's running AFTER you.

This is the best Korean War movie I have ever seen.
Ok, I've only seen three, but that does not change my standing.
The Steel Helmet tells of a group of infantrymen who have come together by literally running into each other by chance. They travel to a Buddhist temple to set up an observation post, but are soon surrounded by the Communist army. There is then a massive battle that is not exactly pretty for the Americans.
The story is good and moves along at a rate which will keep you intrigued, the battle scenes are very good, and I especially like the part where the medic takes off his helmet, rips off his Red Cross armband and fires the machine gun after the man that was operating it was killed. I wish this movie would come onto video or at least be shown on TV so I can tape it. 8/10
