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
full throttle navel action that has to be seen to believe. after a slow but important first half this korean movie goes into high gear with an all out battle film that is very rewarding. totally engrossing and very entertaining.
i have seen my fair share of Asian war epics and this was one of the more enjoyable one, a bit melodramatic but thats fine. as a costume drama its gorgeous and with limited cgi it all looks very realistic.i must say it looks stunning from start to finish
if your looking for something epic to watch and you don't mind subtitle's then this one is for you plus all gaming buffs take not this is how to make a battle movie.
