Ace movie! The best so far this year, after Sha Po Lang...
If you like your typical American movie, with your typical over-the-top-ness & your typical unnecessary love scenes: go by the commentary above..
I have to agree in that is very much a Korean movie; the acting is solid, the lines make sense and the scenes aren't dragged out too long.
The movie in a nutshell: A boy bittered by the massacre of his family grows up into a modern day pirate, aiming to destruct 'the evil south'. Queue lots of killing, an amazing amount of Russians, your fair share of beautiful scenery and torn emotions as the two leads' understanding of each other grows.
