Trivia

Production studio wanted it so that Liam Neeson's filming scenes were filmed in America, but due to the movie background, he had requested it had to be filmed in South Korea. See more »

Goofs

Capt. Jang and his men commandeer a North Korean Self-Propelled Gun (SPG) and use it to assault North Korean beach defenses at Wolmi-Do. However, its appearance does not resemble the actual North Korean SPG in service at the time, the SU-76. The real SU-76 had a thinner, longer gun on a rear-mounted casemate, while the one in the film has a front-mounted casemate housing a shorter, larger main gun. See more »

Tight, well presented miniature action-war film.
24 August 2016 | by reisen55See all my reviews

This is a little hidden gem of a film, you probably won't find it running anywhere as it has a limited budget and almost zero media behind it. But you SEE every dollar on the screen and it looks like it cost twice the sum, so stick with it. Very much a war film, behind enemy lines and a plot that, while based in Korea, is one we know very well. French resistance type of action. Liam Neeson makes a very good MacArthur (much better than Tommy Lee Jones and Sir Laurence some time back), at times catching even the face quite right. (Greg Peck has the high honor). But here we have a straightforward story of brave men doing brave deeds with honor. We should remember such men, and this film gives their heroism a chance to shine. BTW this may be a fictionalized plot but it is based on true events. All told, well worth the time.
