Quotes

Maj. Gen. Joe Barrett: I did not come here because I was better or smarter than General Dawson. I'm here because I was a dogface once, and I'm supposed to have a better understanding of the men. I'm also a dropkick, so you might have a problem with the way I talk - but I guarantee you, you won't have a problem understanding me. Now I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S WRONG AROUND HERE, BUT THERE'S AN ODOR OF DECAYING MORALE THAT I CAN SMELL A MILE AWAY! Men who FEEL licked are gonna GET licked!

maybe some casualties but not a lost war
28 November 2003 | by (Pocono Summit, PA) – See all my reviews

Looks like the proponents of this film could use a little help. OK. Here it comes... Not being much of a historian, and stupid about discards from other pictures, I am unable to evaluate it with these things in mind. Perhaps this lesser intelligence accounts for my being entertained by this flick. It's about a newly-transferred General who concludes that somebody with access to his Command Post is tipping off the Germans with regard to his division's movements. I was not distracted by any inferiority in the easily-seen stuff, such as the acting, sound, lighting, writing, etc. Therefore, I was intrigued by the effort here to identify the source of the "leak". I, for one, would say that FIREBALL FORWARD (which refers to the nickname of the headquarters of the top brass) is worth reconning, and is no more of a gamble as to whether you'll like it or not, than most other movies.
