With no stars or production values, Korea Patrol has the rough-edged look of a war documentary. Though billed third, veteran Asian-American actor Benson Fong is the star of the proceedings, playing a South Korean scout guiding a group of UN soldiers through hostile territory. Ordered to destroy a vital enemy bridge, the small troop is made smaller as the film progresses, and soon only three men are left to carry out orders. One of these men is played by Al Eben, who later gained a measure of prominence for his many supporting appearances on TV's Hawaii 5-0. Director Max Nosseck adds a veneer of verisimilitude by inserting newsreel footage of the actual Korean conflict.
