Get into the North Korean mindset and enjoy the ride
12 October 2013 | by maviitalaSee all my reviews

Watching Wolmi Island was a rather interesting experience this being my the first NK movie. I went into this not knowing what to expect, except maybe some funny cheesiness. Well I got what I expected but also a lot more.

The movie tells the story of Wolmi Island defense force and its desperate struggle against an overwhelming attack force. As would be expected it has some propaganda elements along with a few scenes are so over the top that they are absolutely hilarious but the story isn't about the evil imperialists but rather how this group of people deals with the increasingly desperate situation they're in.

The movie features a good amount of memorable and well done scenes that deliver emotional impact, though occasionally they are a tad over the top. I think the characters work, story and its conveying of the sentiment works. If you like cheesy emotionally charged war movies and can appreciate a film being a product of its environment and time then I would recommend giving this one a chance.
