zdworkin99 - 13 January 2023 Read the book I remember 6 years ago I read the book On Hollow Ground. The part of the book that went over Jessie and Tom brought a tear to my eye. As I read, all I thought to myself was "wow if this story ever gets a movie they better get it right"...I really wish they did. The movie should have focused more around the connection between the grunts on the ground and the pilots. The movie did not express how absolutely crucial it was for close air support and the terrible conditions it was for troops in combat. One of the main reason Marines in the Chosin Reservoir were able to hold out and eventually make it back to the sea was because of Men like Jessie. That connection did not seem present in the movie.
Please if you are reading this then take my recommendation and read the book. I promise you will be satisfied.
M05C0W - 10 January 2023 Just nice Cool, but tries too hard to be an epic, but it's not. It takes a long way to battles happen, and only then is it good. Not because I like kick ass, but that try to force you to be emotional. Something incredible is make you better think the guy really met Elisabeth Taylor... wow! Mix from Top Gun, Forest Gump and Pearl Harbor, but far from that. A salad. Eventually reaches with the heart, from the love ones, wife and brothers in arms. Generally, it is worth it for the real story and for being one of the few films that address the USA/Korea War. At the end, the Lieautenant try to bring him back home, wihout success till today.
