Goofs

While trying to outdistance the North Korean patrol tracking them, the GIs find a wild pig in the hills, kill it and cook it over a campfire. In real life the smell of a pig roasting over an open fire, and the smoke from said fire, would surely have been noticed by the enemy patrol and would have led them directly to where the GIs were.

Not That Bad
20 November 2001 | by w2amarketingSee all my reviews

Actually, I didn't find this movie as terrible as you might think. Yes, it has numerous flaws, and moves slow (even for an 84-minute movie). It doesn't compare favorably to other war / action movies of the time. Still, it's one of a comparatively few movies made about the Korean War, and the plot contains several twists to keep it interesting and keep you wondering about the final outcome. I would only suggest that THE YOUNG AND THE BRAVE is more appropriate for children (7-14 years old), who will enjoy and understand the relatively simple and understandable plot, not be confused by too many characters, and possibly identify with the young Han. Adults, on the other hand, will be easily distracted by the movie's flaws and find its "sanitized" story perhaps less enjoyable. Overall, through, it's not a bad movie on the scale of some supposed "classics." A good family movie for a cold Friday night around the VCR. Then put the kids to bed and watch SAVING PRIVATE RYAN.
