During the battle at the beach the allied ships are shown to use their guns against the German positions while these are already engaged by the Americans. Since this would have jeopardized the own soldiers too, in reality any bombardment of the beaches was stopped shortly before the actual landings. See more »
there's not much to say about this movie aside from it the best war movie ever made. it is very unique and original in its plot. its also very touching at many parts. the characters are developed well despite the fast pace.
the battle scenes are the most realistic and intense that I've ever seen of any war film. i even rank "my way" above "tae guk gi", although the latter still comes in a very close second.
saying this movie is an epic masterpiece is like saying the sun is hot. "my way" beats out any war drama that I've ever seen hands down. 10/10 stars from me.
