When the American soldiers come upon Han and his German Shepherd, which he has named "Lobo", Han--played by young Hispanic actor Manuel Padilla--gets angry and shouts at the dog, "Kill, Lobo!" "Lobo" is Spanish for "wolf"; it's unlikely, to say the least, that a small boy living in an isolated farming area in early 1950s Korea would be able to speak three languages--Korean, English and Spanish.

I didn't think this movie was that bad. The Korean War is largely forgotten so the proud vets of that war can have pride in watching this. The set and some of the script is a bit tired and worn looking but it adds to the almost camp like atmosphere, which makes this almost a late night B movie classic. Is it a sanitized version of war? Well yea but what wasn't back then? War is awful and senseless, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't pay homage to the brave men who fought for us, even in a war as unpopular as this one, or was this a "police action"? Either way 54,000 men, mostly from the US, gave their lives, knowing that and realizing this was made in a simpler time when Presidents had their sexual dalliances covered up, baseball players hit 61 homers, cleanly, and we were all glued to watching a single Astronaut go into space 15 minutes and thought that was incredible ( and it was in 1961)well then that makes this a good ole B rated memory flick to watch.
