The film mainly follows the famous 1597 Battle of Myeongryang during the Japanese invasion of Korea (1592-1598), where the iconic Joseon admiral Yi Sun-sin managed to destroy a total of 31 of 133 Japanese warships with only 13 ships remaining in his command. The battle, which took place in the Myeongryang Strait off the southwest coast of the Korean Peninsula, is considered one of the greatest victories of Yi. Written by
Nice to learn a little history while watching an epic film
AWESOME MOVIE!! How one brilliant man defeated hundreds!! The battle scenes in this movie are amazing and it's interesting to see how the story develops. An admiral changed the fear in his men to that of courage and defeated the enemy. Even the local peasants watched in awe and helped the admiral. So much detail in the film to resemble the actual clothing, ships and respect for their leader. I just wish I understood the language used in the film since something is always lost when translating. The actors spoke in both Japanese and Korean. Fortunately there were English subtitles. I think I'll go see it a second time since there was so much detail in the film. I loved the costumes everyone wore! One thing I like about Korean films is they use good acting and a strong plot to tell the story. The problem with American movies is there's so much CGI and special effects to help develop the story that a crappy story with a lot of special effects can still be a blockbuster. I'm getting the blu ray when it comes out!! Go see it!!
