Surprisingly Good
19 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

First off, there are different copies around for this movie. Don't make the mistake of watching the one that is dubbed for the Korean Actors. I started to watch it and the English dubbed voices just ruined it, gave it that same weird, almost comic feel of any dubbed movie. I then watched the one that has English speaking for English and Korean speaking for Korean (with subtitles) and found myself really enjoying the movie. Very good Korean acting, better than all the English counterparts. Liam was actual kind of ho hum with his gruff MacArthur character and his dialog was pretty shallow. The Korean acting though stole the show. Most straight Korean movies I watch (with all English subtitles) end up being pretty good. They are pretty good at making movies. Their acting can get a bit dramatic at times but all in all is entertaining. I didn't know what to expect from this movie but gave it a chance cause I just enjoy watching a good movie. This one was pretty good.
