Tom states that the Republic of China released fifteen American POWs in 1955. The People's Republic of China (Communist China) might have done so, but the Republic of China (Taiwan) has always been an American ally and would not have been holding any Americans prisoner to begin with. See more »
I watched this movie on TV twice. It's the first movie I've watched by Patrick Swayze. I was moved by the story and felt myself like that little Tom very much. I couldn't help crying when I saw the ending and told myself I should learn from this movie. And till then I began to understand the meaning of the movie.
It's a good movie for a family to watch together. I think many people can learn from this movie that we should cherish what we already have had in hand. As the saying says, happiness lies in satisfaction.
And it's not a big story, so it may not have got much attention from audience. But still I would say it's a good movie.
