Movie Info

In this action film set during the Korean War, a crude and brutal sergeant (Everett McGill ) has a sense of morality fixed at an altitude of about three feet above the gutter on his best days. Yet as time goes on, he is miraculously transformed into the shining opposite as though his defects were no more serious than a hangnail. His unit seems to suffer from the same moral blindness, except they are not brutal. The Dutch soldiers underneath him are sexually occupied with a Korean refugee woman and her daughter when a Chinese contingent launches a surprise attack. At this point, some viewers will be cheering for the Chinese. There is not much action in spite of this moment of combat, most of the movie centers on dialogue. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Field Of Honor

FIELD OF HONOR One of only a small number of films about the Korean War (1950-1953). This is a very good one. Well-acted. A compelling story that is based upon the first-hand knowledge of screenwriter Henk Bos. A Dutch infantry battalion serving with a contingent of United Nations troops is all but wiped out during a full-scale attack by the Chinese on a small rural village where they have been posted. A lone, surviving Dutch officer named Sire, war-weary and seriously wounded, must now care for and protect on his own two village children who also somehow survived the assault in which their mother was brutally murdered. It is a daunting task and the odds are bleak that any one of them will live to tell the dire tale. Resources are slim to nonexistent. The three have been cut off from friendly forces and enemy soldiers are quickly advancing into the area to take up forward positions. But Sire refuses to desert his two young, innocent charges and does the best that he can to keep them all alive through the thick of it to come. Contains disturbing scenes of violence in combat on soldiers and civilians. Filmed near the demilitarized zone between North Korea and the Republic of South Korea in rough, steep mountainous terrain.
