Classic Adventure Movie
29 August 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

A good adventure movie with good characters and a decent plot containing some unexpected turns but with the usual happy ending. So we have a Seul under Japanese occupation in 1945 and the focus of the movie is on the "Light of The East" a diamond large as a fist. All of them the Korean resistance, the Japanese army and some thieves want the precious "Light of The East" the way they get it will be fun to watch. The resistance is a couple of people who doesn't do anything right, and a thief is giving the police and the army headaches. Entertaining enough with decent story and acting i recommend to the fans of the adventure comedy movies.
