During the early days of the Korean War, U.S. Army colonel Steve Janowski is one of the military advisers training the South Korean army and he's tasked with evacuating American civilians from the war zone.
In Ireland, it's 1941 and Irish Republicans have made a tentative bond with Nazi Germany to help Ireland in its never-ending struggle with Great Britain. A small cell of IRA soldiers is recruited in one village, under the flimsy leadership of the morally and physically lame Don McGinnis. Among the new recruits is Dermot O'Neill, who wants to free Ireland from Britain, but is not as convinced of the means as are his colleagues. McGinnis, in love with Dermot's sister, who spurns him, means to prove himself through violence, even though he's not able due to his disability to participate in the raids he sends Dermot and others on. On one such raid, Dermot and his pal Sean Reilly are separated from the squad. Dermot helps the wounded Sean to safety, but when Sean returns to their village and is captured, Dermot must decide whether his duty lies with the cause, with Ireland, or with his own humanity.Written by

One night after a hard day's filming, Robert Mitchum and Richard Harris went for a few drinks in Dublin. Late in the evening, a patron in one of Dublin's hostelries recognized Mitchum, and excitedly asked him for his autograph. Mitchum duly obliged and the delighted fan went to show it to his friends. Only then did he realize that Mitchum had signed it "Kirk Douglas". Furious at being made a fool of, the disgruntled fan threw a punch at Mitchum and apparently mayhem ensued. Dublin newspapers were only delighted to report the Hollywood star's barroom brawl. See more »

Robert Mitchum is an irish-man who joins the IRA during the WW2 era. They plan to fight the British while they're occupied with the Germans. Could have been a much better movie if the people didn't act so one- dimensional. I almost yawned a few times.
Where I saw it: Showtime Extreme (ironic, i know)
My grade: C-
