Trivia

The final shot of Gen. MacArthur admiring a bust of Gaio Giulio Cesare was filmed in October of 1979, on a sound stage in Rome, Italy, over two months after filming ended. Rev. Sun Myung Moon, the film's backer, included it to emphasize his Christian message to the viewers (although Caesar wasn't a Christian). See more »

Goofs

The Flag of Canada is the current version adopted in 1965, obviously incorrect for a film set in 1950. See more »

Titles: This is not a documentary of the war in Korea but a dramatized study of the effect of war on a group of people. Where dramatic license has been deemed necessary, the authors have taken advantage of this license to dramatize the subject.

Great Korean actors, GONE TO WASTE!
7 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

And I have to thank Rev. Moonie for all of this! Why doesn't Moon just stick to his cult. But thankfully after this stinker, he STOPPED with making movies, since Inchon was a bomb in both North America and Asia (especially South Korea!).

Now with the plot. Deals with General Mc Arthur and the US in Korean War ridden South Korea. I also leaves out that Mc Arthur helped out Japan before trying to deal with Korea. Grrrrr.....~_~

Okay, the guy who play Mc Arthur may not act, but MANY great Korean actors in this film were wasted and looked really bored throughout the whole film. If fact, I read in an Asian cinema book, that a lot of the Korean actors and actresses deny ever being in this film.

Stay away from Inchon! If you want a good WW2/Korean War history lesson, watch some Korean anime based on the events, because at least the Anime characters could act!

However, Inchon is fun to do some MST3K-stlyed mocking time with.
