Pork Chop Hill 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This is a great war movie. There is no glory or key battle of the Korean War, only a hard fight for a worthless piece of ground.  The movie highlights the  'fog of war' and  the willingness of either side to spend resources for  territory of questionable value:  a hill that is worth both nothing and everything..

Great Movie for your WWII Movie Collection.

Great movie encompassing desperate situations, human conflict, and the mass confusion of war. Excellent primer on leadership.

I consider this movie great. This was an anti-war movie, before it was trendy to do so. Show the futility of war.
