Somewhat dated BUT...and not filmed in Korea probably Southern Calif. ...this is one of the better movies about the Korean War and just plain fun to watch......there is all the ingredients...a "love" triangle.....a hot shot pilot....the old war horse who still can show up the kids....a "coward" who still flys...and a CO who is real jerk he's only in the movie for a few sequences, fortunately ..a "bad guy" North Korean pilot....good flying sequences to rival Top Gun using the F86 Sabre Jet....pilots getting shot down and E&E'ing behind Korean <more>
lines.....NOT for the Artsy-Craftsy Set who tend to snub their collective noses at anything pertaining to war and kicking butt..!!! If you like action/war stories don't miss it....!!!
Excellent, although dated aviation-romance. (by BobNis)
Robert Mitchum and Robert Wagner team up with May Britt to provide aviation enthusiasts a 1950's era movie filled with exciting combat, while Mitchum romances May Britt on the ground. The enemy flies F-84's not exactly Mig 15's while the good guys fight with F-86's, but the action shots are good. Aviation art buffs will smile at the Kacee Jones "The Crapshooter" who has 7 & 11 dice painted on his aircraft nose. If you like aviation movies, this is one to see. You will recognize some other actors as well.
An overlooked war movie (by k4tbn)
Why isn't this film on DVD yet? Or, at least, VHS?I still remember as a kid at the movies when we all stood up and cheered when Clete blew away the Crapshooter... What a scene.The movie could only be improved by getting rid of the love interests as those scenes appear to be tacked on. More air to air action would have been better.
Very good air-war drama - but a trite romance. (by sabre86f)
I've been waiting for this film to be released on Video/DVD for a LONG time. I first saw it in the theater when I was nine, and it has been many years since I last saw it - as it was seldom if ever shown over the past 20-30 years.It has some of the very best aerial photography ever filmed - groundbreaking for its day. Beautiful shots of F-86 Sabres and F-84 Thunderjets subbing for "Migs" in air-to-air combat.As a war film, it is one of the best - but it is lessened by a rather trite "romantic triangle" subplot.Nevertheless, it is well worth owning and watching for <more>
any aviation buff who wants an insight as to what the first true "jet war" was all about.
I never did get to see this as a kid and when I did as an adult I really enjoyed it. Great flying scenes and cinematography. Of course a great cast with Mitchum, Egan and Wagner made a wonderful dynamic. The romance with Abbott's wife was refreshing and made the movie more human. The sets and costumes were amazing and the locations too. The guns and planes, cars and rough and dirty environment made this more realistic and fun to watch. Seeing Richard Egan with a leather flight jacket and a .45 on his hip as the squadron commander was a thrill as he was always one of my favorites. One of <more>
the really cool "old Hollywood" guys. Masculine, but with soft features and an understanding for everything around. Young Robert Wagner is always fun and reminded me of the Spencer Tracy movie he did when they pilfered the downed airliner in the Swiss Alps. Great matinée flick.
Movie Jet Attack and Fighter Attack (by SipteaHighTea)
I recall the movie Jet Attack with John Agar and the beginning and ending of that movie, the film had actual aerial gun films from the USAF of showing MIG 15s being shot down by our Air Force. Otherwise, the film was okay, but I think it is ridiculous that when a flyboy is shot down over enemy territory, he is able to overcome a soldier who has more combat experience in hand to hand combat and shooting ability. I also saw the 1948 movie Fighter Squadron starring Edmund O'Brien where they were using P-51 Mustangs as ME-109s. If we had only save those enemy aircraft for the movies that <more>
occurred after World War II, we would not be using our own planes. I also agree with the reviewers that many of our Korean War movies also seem to contain a love interest. Why didn't they do that in our World War II movies especially when our men had affairs with other women even though they were married? In the movie The Dirty Dozen, Lee Marvin was facing charges, one of them was bringing prostitutes onto the camp. However, he informed his superiors that if they tried enforce the rule throughout the American Army in England, half the American Officer Corps would have to be thrown in the brig.
Well, what do you know, . . Saville, . . The Ice Man Commeth " (by thinker1691)
Back in the days when Hollywood was looking to emphasize it's virility, they selected a West Point novelist named James Salter. His book, 'The Hunters' was published in 1957, which became a movie in 1958. The book was not given its due share of attention and neither was the movie. Yet it became a high school assignment which mutated into a book report. Although, grudgingly accepted, I hated it before I read the first page. However, as Study hall was boring, I opened the cover and began to read. Surprisingly, not only did I find the novel interesting and exciting, I got an <more>
'A' and low and behold, I found I could scribble well enough to later write my own books. When the movie came out I had to go see it and the three movie stars, Robert Mitchum as Major Cleve Saville, Robert Wagner as Lt. Ed Pell and Richard Egan, Colonel Dutch Imil became my favorite actors. The movie is an exceptional story of American pilots flying combat missions during the Korean War. The subject of their peril concerns a Korean Air Ace, nicknamed 'Casey Jones Leon Lontoc .' This enemy is credited with bringing down a dozen American fliers and is the best the enemy has. Enter, Cleve Saville, so cool at his job, they call him 'The Iceman." To help him in his squadron is none other than cocky Robert Wagner, a "hip" pilot, with so many first, he hopes to bring down, 'jones' before Seville does. May Britt, plays Kristina Abbott, the love interest and the human aspect of the story. An excellent movie, so well done, you could write a book report on it. ****
Very Good Korean War Film with Real-Life Heroes! (by vitaleralphlouis)
Now in DVD, THE HUNTERS is about the US Air Force during the Korean War; more exactly about a love triangle involving two pilots, and one man's wife. This 1957 movie --- like many films made back when Hollywood was patriotic --- featured real life World War II heroes both on screen and behind the cameras.With most of the focus on the in-air combat and personal relationships on the ground, very little is devoted to what the Korean War was all about. That's too bad, but it made sense in 1957 as there were simply no anti-war advocates. I was in school at that time and I can recall <more>
absolutely no anti-war talk at school, at home, on the air, or in the press. Any person doing so would have been considered a traitor and rejected on a social level, if not punched around a few times. We all knew the USA and other countries were fighting not just North Korea but Red China and Stalin's Russia; testing our mettle on Korea's soil. I knew many slightly older guys who went into combat. Not one ever said anything against their task, not during the war or after. It was a tough war, certainly compared to Iraq, and America was losing it for month-after-month until the Inchon Invasion turned it around. With nuclear attack a real possibility, and both Russia and China led by sociopaths who murdered millions of their own people, concerns were severe and everyday.I originally saw this at the World Premiere held at Washington's finest ever movie palace, Loew's Capitol, with Robert Mitchum, Robert Wagner, and the US Air Force Band on stage.
Great Jet action, DVD allows viewer to skip love triangle scenes (by Donrbtro)
Until reading the first review on this page I had no idea that the author of the novel, on which the film is loosely based, was born James Horowitz. My late father, Leonard Horowitz, a WWII veteran of the Normandy invasion, became an aerospace engineer and worked for Republic. He designed components of the cockpit air-conditioning system of the F84F Thunderstreak, the plane used in the movie to simulate MIG 15s. My dad also designed the hydraulic system of the landing gear on Republic's Mach II fighter bomber, the F105 Thunderchief, aka the "Thud" . When I was 10, Dad took <more>
the family to an open house at the Farmingdale NY plant, during which the Thunderbirds performed. Afterward I used my saved up allowance for my first ride in an airplane, a 15 minute flight in a Cessna at adjacent Zahn's airport. Given this background I will watch any movie involving airplanes or spaceships. While my wife is out of town this weekend I will be at a theatre watching George Lucas' new movie "Red Tails."
