Creaky and clunky, weirdly reminiscent of big-budget prestige movies of years gone by such as The Longest Day, which used to always crop up on bank holiday TV.
The wooden dialogue gives Liam Neeson little to do beyond bite on his corncob pipe and berate subordinates who dare question him.
Exciting if occasionally awkward ...
The actual Operation Chromite was a surprise. In the movie version, you can hear everything coming from miles away.
South Korean reverence for MacArthur and the U.S. military is evident here in the same way that "Our Warmest Congratulations on Your Graduation" is evident in a Hallmark card.
It's strange to watch a war epic and think that what it could do with less of are the gravelly Liam Neeson speeches. But that is exactly what happens here.
Entertaining in its own way, though probably not in the way intended.
Operation Chromite so bad it's almost spellbinding.
With violent skirmishes and acts of self-sacrifice, actions speak louder than words in this simplistic but effective patriotic epic.
As a film about the political intricacies of the Korean war, it's an utter failure but as a boys' own adventure romp, full of gunfire and explosions, it just about passes muster.
A mix of gung-ho action and heavy-handed patriotic pride, the point of South Korean war film Operation Chromite may be somewhat lost in translation for western audiences.
Unrelenting from the offset, Operation Chromite offers a pure sense of entertainment, but lacks heavily on the emotional front, and that's not for the want of trying, as profundity is vied for, and yet is hard to adhere to.
Operation Chromite comes with pacing and script flaws but presents a great perspective on the Korean War and how tough it really was. The action is tense and unpredictable; you don't know who is going to survive until the very end.
