Actor Ken Olin directed this real-life story of five American Calvary soldiers who took a stand against General Douglas MacArthur and fought his 1930s plan to trade men on horses for tanks. After defying a direct order to destroy their horses, the men find themselves on the wrong side of military law fighting to survive. This made-for-cable movie was filmed on location in New Zealand and Australia. ~ Bernadette McCallion, Rovi
A decent film on a little-known incident in American military history. Those with a love of horses will find the story to be of particular interest, though you should be warned to expect several scenes that involve the animals being "put out of their misery." The movie tends to drag to a close and perhaps should have been 15-20 minutes shorter, but fans of military or western films shouldn't be too disappointed with this film.
