The Korean military drama "Blue" borrows heavily from "Top Gun" and "Le grand bleu" and tells the story of two Korean Navy divers who fall for the same woman and struggle with their hard duty.

The film is well done technically but I wasn't too much impressed by the story. It takes a couple of turns too many. The last hour is the only part of the film that seems to focus on one specific adventure. It's the only coherent part of the movie - the rest is all over the place. It's a love story, a film about friendship, a boot camp movie, a military thriller, a diving adventure - and much more. That doesn't mean it's a richly themed film but only one that doesn't seem to know where to go. As I mentioned, the film gets tighter towards the end and gets into a kind of "Abyss"-routine. It's pretty solid in that part.

The characters are OK, the actors playing them are good (the most famous face being Eun-Kyung Shin from "My Wife is a Gangster") and the technical aspects of "Blue" are solid. The movie overall is average due to its lack of storytelling focus. It's far from a bad film but a surprisingly uninvolving one due to the problems mentioned above.

I'd rate it 6/10
