Saying that Sniper's Ridge is just a poor man's version of Pork Chop Hill is not to denigrate this film, but merely to point out it's a B film. Sniper's Ridge is the kind of B film that used to fill out the bottom part of a double feature back in the day when they had double features. The sixties was the last decade that happened in.
The two most prominent names in this film are Jack Ging and Stanley Clements a pair of soldiers who are sweating out the final hours before the cease fire is to take effect in Korea. Both give good believable performances as do the rest of the cast. No mock Hollywood heroics here, these are men just trying to stay alive and get home.
If this is ever shown again on television try to catch it.
