      Christopher Lloyd Sarasota Herald-Tribune The tone in many ways reminded me of Top Gun, which would come out three decades later: Callow young pilots learn to rely on their fellow fighter jocks and act as a team. Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 6, 2010 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Tepid factual Korean War drama about life aboard an American naval aircraft carrier stationed off Korea in the Sea of Japan.

      Audience Member good WWII story made post WWII Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member great movies no women in it at all just men fighting the commies Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Not much of a plot. Acting was ok. I guess movies about the Korean war are forgotten just like the war itself. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Good Korean War action-drama. Korean War movies are pretty rare, especially naval or air war ones, so this is quite a treat. The plot is solid, and apparently based on actual events. Direction is a bit gung ho. The combat scenes are great, using actual Korean War footage in many cases. Acting is pretty good, though is a bit wooden at times, in keeping with the gung ho direction. Van Johnson is good in the lead role Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member great cast good stuff Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
