Operation Chromite

Action, Drama, History

A squad of soldiers fight in the Korean War's crucial Battle of Incheon.

The critical consensus

Liam Neeson fails to add value to this heavy-handed South Korean war film.

**(*)(*)(*)Nikki Baughan, The List, 20/12/2016

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.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 20/12/2016

Liam Neeson’s silly performance is a low point in a spy movie that mars a fascinating real-life story.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 22/12/2016

The true story of a revered general instigating one of the most daring ploys in military history might seem like the perfect vehicle for Liam Neeson to return to more serious fare, but even he cannot breathe life into some truly terrible dialogue. It’s left to the Korean actors to save the day.

***(*)(*)Hamish Macbain, Empire Online, 22/12/2016

With violent skirmishes and acts of self-sacrifice, actions speak louder than words in this simplistic but effective patriotic epic.
