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.

Audience Reviews for Operation Chromite

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.
