Reviews

Amerikaanse oorlogsfilm in kleur uit 1954 van Mark Robson, met William Holden en Grace Kelly. Een veteraan uit de Tweede Wereldoorlog moet opnieuw zijn gezin verlaten om te gaan vechten in Noord-Korea. De Speelfilmencyclopedie geeft 2 1/2 ster: 'Het verhaal stelt weinig voor en alleen de spectaculaire vliegopnamen zijn echt boeiend. De moed en zelfopoffering in deze film zijn het toonbeeld van voorbijgestreefd heroïsme.' Oscar voor speciale effecten. De dvd bevat geen extra's.
