On D-Day, light the Palmido light house as a signal to the main UN forces.

Critic Reviews for Operation Chromite

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (5)

  • 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.

    Aug 11, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

Audience Reviews for Operation Chromite

  • Aug 16, 2016
    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.
