“Operation Chromite” is a film that serves the purpose to inform the general public about heroic individual, group, army battles that shaped one important episode of the Korean War, not known to all. I did not know much about this war and I exit the projection with the desire to learn more about the historical moment, evolution and implications of this conflict, that till today affects the region. The general MAC Arthur and the protagonist Jung-Jae Lee completely fulfill the expectations of their roles, while the remaining characters are not up to their acting quality, although very good. Some characters are developed as augmented villains, and surrounded and producing evil, end by raising our most basic ad version feelings. The South Korean roles gain our loyalty, and sympathy.

Movie Quality: 9/10

Final Thoughts

The production values are high; the story-telling intriguing that actually gives us more incite on the heroes of the Korean War that were long forgotten. Watch it yourself and enjoy the fine acting.
