The grunts 'talk the talk' and the action sequences are bloody good.

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.

If the film has endured it's because of a few aspects particular to Fuller's career, which began not in film but in yellow journalism and pulp writing.

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.
