Then there's Liam Neeson as General Douglas MacArthur.

*Spoiler alert*
The film was inspired on the real events of Battle of Inchon.
I always have this thinking how army/war movies usually bore me and I will ended up taking out my phone half way through and wiki the plot instead.

The flow of the story was just nice for me and there were moments that were funny.

There was this scene where the plane came and picked a person up, I don't know why i ended up chuckling.
I do know it's a method to pick up cargo when the plane can't land but to see it happening to a human it's just.... Weirdly funny. 

Friendship and trust are usually factors in army/war movies that are shown. 
Sacrificing oneself to save an entire country always soften my heart. 
I might have dropped a tear or two in one of those scenes. 

This was spoken in the front of the show, 
How the good guys will die while looking up at the blue sky.

You should catch the movie and find out whether it happens or not.
