Interesting South Korean History
4 November 2017 | by Luigi Di PillaSee all my reviews

I discovered this spy and war movie in the list of Liam Neeson's work. Then I read the reviews here and I thought it is a must see. I wasn't disappointed at all because there was nonstop lot of twists and action. The special and visual effects were respectably executed. It was a great experience for me to see what happened in the very decisive moment in Korea. The historical lines between North and South Korea makes the Chromite Operation a worth seeing film. I recommend to see it in the original version spoken Korean and English, it's more realistic. God bless all the courageous victims who fought against the red murder commando. 7/10.
