Low Budget war drama
29 September 2001 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

For the most part this low budget war drama is nothing more than routine. The story of a Corporal that has more guts than brains and more guts than his superiors. If anything is above average here, it is the performance turned in by Ging. It seems Hollywood noticed the appeal of low budget war pictures and a flood of them hit theaters in the late Fifties and early Sixties. TV followed with action series such as "Combat." The genre provided a testing ground for new talent, at a low dollar out-put, and occasionally one would hit the mark.
