Operation Chromite


Melodramatic and over the top. Even being a war film, it has more in common with John Woo heroic bloodshed.

Liam Neeson as Douglas McArthur is goddamn badass, as long you don’t think about it much.

This is a period nearly erased from (popular) American history. Vietnam left a mark that erased this one.

It’s telling this was a South Korean production, there aren’t that many films set/about the Korean war. There ones tagged on IMDb with “korean-war” are either barely related or propaganda pieces produced during the war itself.

This is my place for ramblings about sequences of images that exploit the human visual limitation know as persistence of vision.
