Chronicled through his journal, William Bryne, an idealistic, God-fearing young man, volunteers for war for the noblest of reasons; Duty, God, and Country. The deaths of the platoon's officers and a sergeant's suicide have pressed Corporal Bryne into command. Then comes word of the improbable, William must lead his beleaguered and outnumbered men into battle. William struggles to maintain his faith and understand his place between good and evil, while his tank crew comes to grips with their impending fate. After saving a Korean soldier's life and quelling a desertion and mutiny, William musters his last shred of idealism and leads his men into battle. Written by Anonymous

Destined for the standard canon of Korean War movies
26 January 2004 | by micgrantSee all my reviews

Not too many films take a true interior approach to telling a war story. Certainly not about a large-scale war in which three of the world's largest armies fought and which, even now, hardly anyone talks about. The Forgotten has enough action for intelligent viewers without neglecting the fear, confusion, dementia and sudden death faced by GIs in Korea.

Of course, war pictures always introduce characters, but the explosions and 'big picture' addiction always take over, both in terms of studio pyrotechnics and the way soldiers always seem to understand the geopolitical ramifications of what they are doing. This picture does not harbor those conceits-or easy answers about good and evil.

Vincente Stassola's direction injects the right amount of claustrophobic tension, giving us just enough air before shoehorning many of the great questions of our time into a battle tank patrol and letting them rattle around.
