Based on the true story that is known as the second battle of Yeonpyeong, this movie tells the story of some of the young soldiers who fought and died in the battle. The battle took place in the yellow sea on 29th of June in 2002, when two North-Korean vessels boarded the NLL - the Northern Limit Line - and fired at the South-Korean patrol boat named Chamsuri 357, killing six men and left 18 injured.Written by
Since the 1990s, there have been several notable clashes between North and South Korean patrol craft at the Northern Limit Line. The Second Battle of Yeonpyeong, as shown here, was the only one where the North Koreans achieved a real first strike, the only one where the South Koreans suffered any dead, and also the only one where a patrol craft was lost (357 sank while being towed).

ER doctors shocking a flat line cardiac condition (twice) and getting a heart beat reestablished (once). The shock is done to stop the heart beating in an irregular rhythm which then allows the intrinsic pacemaker to take over and produce a regular rhythm. In other words, shocking the heart produces a flat line which allows a regular rhythm to take over. Shocking a flat line is not done because there is no rhythm to reset; it only produces a continuing flat line. AEDs are programmed not to shock a flat line and it is not done manually either.

Suspenseful, entertaining, authentic naval warfare film
Caught this on Netflix streaming, while I had "nothing better to do;" and, boy, am I glad I did. "Northern Limit Line" is, clearly the most authentic movie about military life since "We Were Soldiers"; and it the most the most authentic film about shipboard life since "Das Boot", but a lot more entertaining. Based on a two incident, what would be called a "clash" by a news reader in a paragraph on a "Nightly News," "Nothern Line Limit" is, alternately, suspenseful, exciting, grueling and, ultimately, touching. Very well written, directed, photographed, acted and scored, "Northern Limit Line" also contains the longest modern naval warfare sea battle I have seen. Hollywood could certainly learn from South Korea about how to film a sea battle. My only slight quibble is the editing. One or two sequences end abruptly, disorienting the viewer for an instant. The movie could also use a slight trimming, particularly the "port departure sequence" on the day of the battle.
Inexplicably, I could not enjoy "Northern Limit Line" on my home theater system. For some reason, the title does not appear on the Netflix "Search" menu on my Roku. Too bad, because the sea battle cries out for a big screen and Surround sound. I give "Northern Limit Line" a "9".
