Rating: 3.5/4 -- If the film has endured it's because of a few aspects particular to Fuller's career, which began not in film but in yellow journalism and pulp writing. Full Review

The script, based on a novel by John Brophy, boasts plenty of the writer-director's punchy and ironic dialogue.

Fixed Bayonets is a moving war drama and may well remain the best of the films about the Korean conflict. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- It takes a while for Fixed Bayonets! to build steam, but the second half is a landmine field of devastating setpieces, punctuated with the threat of sudden, overwhelming and even self-inflicted violence. Full Review

[A] very human story of men caught up in the most inhumane of situations....Mr. Fuller never demonizes the enemy...

Fuller's action sequences were one of a kind, getting close to the fray and moving quickly, but never more quickly than the eye can follow. Full Review

Product Description:

Director Sam Fuller (PICKUP ON SOUTH STREET) turns his touch to this 1951 film about the Korean War. Set in Korea's frozen mountains, FIXED BAYONETS follows a small group of soldiers as they protect 15,000 troops from attack. Though everyone considers the man in charge a hero, he is far less than he appears and this will have deadly consequences. Screen icon James Dean makes an early appearance in this action-driven drama.
