Thought provoking
2 July 2003 | by ///-2See all my reviews

Set in the 1920s in Shanghai, this movie follows a group of Korean Anarchists who set off on a terrorism campaign to pressure the Japanese Imperial Government to give up Korea.

The action sequences in this movie is a bit overacted in my opinion, but the thought given to the philosophical development of each characters in the movie is quite well done. People, despite sharing the same ideals, may not always share the same views on everything.

The movie also shows how ideals and reality are sometimes at odds with each other and how it sometimes forces one to compromise and in the movie, you will find bits and pieces of the philosophy of anarchism as well as the differences between it from another left-wing ideal, Socialism.
