Critic Reviews for Fixed Bayonets!
No excerpt available.
Fuller's action sequences were one of a kind, getting close to the fray and moving quickly, but never more quickly than the eye can follow.
Fixed Bayonets! isn't the most hyperbolic film in Samuel Fuller's catalog, but it earns the exclamation point.
Audience Reviews for Fixed Bayonets!
yup sam fuller's war movies from the 50s are better than anyone else's war movies from the 50s
Another great war movie from the amazing Sam Fuller. I am ADDICTED to his editing. SOOOOOO awesome.
Samuel Fuller once again takes on the Korean War (see also The Steel Helmet) in this hard hitting 1951 film. This is the story of an American army platoon left behind to protect a narrow mountain pass, buying time for their comrades to safely withdrawal. Fuller's style focuses on the inner turmoil of individual soldiers, emphasizing the toll that combat takes on reluctant heroes.
