American General Douglas MacArthur (Liam Neeson) sends eight members of the Korean Liaison Office, led by a South Korean Navy Lieutenant (Lee Jung-Jae) on a secret mission far behind North Korean lines to carry out Operation "X-ray". This covert operation must succeed so that MacArthur can launch the daring Incheon Landing Operation.This is a fictionalized version of the historical CIA/military intelligence operation "Trudy Jackson", part of Operation Chromite.Written by
Onscreen text just before the credits tells the audience that "13 days after the successful landing operation of Incheon, on September 15, 1950, the UN Allied Forces reclaimed Seoul." However, the actual Battle of Inchon took place on September 19, 1950, and Seoul was not completely recaptured until September 25, 1950. See more »
First off, there are different copies around for this movie. Don't make the mistake of watching the one that is dubbed for the Korean Actors. I started to watch it and the English dubbed voices just ruined it, gave it that same weird, almost comic feel of any dubbed movie. I then watched the one that has English speaking for English and Korean speaking for Korean (with subtitles) and found myself really enjoying the movie. Very good Korean acting, better than all the English counterparts. Liam was actual kind of ho hum with his gruff MacArthur character and his dialog was pretty shallow. The Korean acting though stole the show. Most straight Korean movies I watch (with all English subtitles) end up being pretty good. They are pretty good at making movies. Their acting can get a bit dramatic at times but all in all is entertaining. I didn't know what to expect from this movie but gave it a chance cause I just enjoy watching a good movie. This one was pretty good.
