Critics reviews

It’s been said that all of Fuller’s films are war movies of one sort or another. None are without interest although his two Korean War films, the bargain-basement The Steel Helmet (1950), a scoop and a scandal when it was released at a low-point for United Nations troops, and its studio-commissioned quasi-remake Fixed Bayonets! (1951), are particularly strong.
