There has not been enough focus on the Korean war since Vietnam but I feel there is still a lot more stories to be told about that war and this movie is great example of the kind of sweeping stories that background has to offer.I highly recommend it if one wants a good slice of the atmosphere that war brought because of it's combination of attention to detail combined with entertaining aspects like great movie eye candy cinematography and a dramatic story that fullfills the movie's promise.A person who knows about movie making basics will definitely respect the efforts put into this movie because it truly shows.Delivers it's Korean war/drama genre expectations with a lot of extra treats thrown in.This extra effort has proven through time that this movie was under appreciated and is now considered to stand as one of the best war movies of all time.
