The Normandy beach landing scene appears to be a combination of the action on the American beaches on D-Day. The heavy casualties, bunkers and beach obstacles is a staple of Omaha Beach, while the men assaulting the beach wear 4th Infantry Division patches, which attacked Utah Beach. Lastly, the climbing up the cliff using ropes are from the assault on Pointe Du Hoc, between the Utah and Omaha beaches. See more »
When the beaches of Normandy come under aerial attack, the distinctive sound of a Carter-Gents air raid siren - used by the Allies - can be heard. The Germans used a deeper-pitched siren. See more »
While waiting from Hollywood or American cinematography to blasts away with an adventure of epic proportions heres comes this outsider. The cheesy story of two friends that lives an entire life in war and madness brings out the best in the latest Asian cinematography. Great story,amazing war battles never seen before,enough depth in the characters to make a movie worth seeing,a tight and emotional little jewel from Korea that comes as an outsider to win this year our cinematic addictions of what movies is all about. This movie is Epic in all levels and a definitely miss-not for the cinefils that respects theirself. The word Epic redefines it's self,so simple.
