Did You Know?


Director John H. Lee and Man-Hee Lee previously worked on 71: Into the Fire (2010) and Sayonara itsuka (2010). See more »


Onscreen text just before the credits tells the audience that "13 days after the successful landing operation of Incheon, on September 15, 1950, the UN Allied Forces reclaimed Seoul." However, the actual Battle of Inchon took place on September 19, 1950, and Seoul was not completely recaptured until September 25, 1950.

This is not entirely correct. UN forces began landing on September 15th. Still 2 days short of of the "13 days" claimed in the onscreen text, but not as off as claimed above. See more »

Okay, but should have been better
23 December 2018 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

This South Korean war epic/action movie does get a marginal recommendation from me, being that it's not boring and it does contain some good action and some excitement. But at the same time, the movie is clearly being held back from maximum impact due to some significant flaws. For starters, there are the production values. While the movie was big budget by Korean standards, and indeed some shots look very nice, all the same there are many moments where the movie does not have enough "oompth" to its look, giving the movie a restrained feeling. Also, linking footage and entire scenes seem to be missing at times. A bigger problem, however, is the script. The script is severely underwritten at times, most notably being the heroes who set out on the mission. The heroes are poorly introduced, and we learn next to nothing about them. Also, the storyline has a lot of predictability to it; you'll have seen many moments in this movie in other war movies before. Another problem is that the English language dialogue often sounds very stilted and awful. This may be why actor Liam Neeson seems to be hamming it up at times. I realize I may be portraying this movie to be worse than it really is, so let me say again that while the movie could have been better, it is an acceptable time-waster. And it's a heck of a lot better than the 1982 movie "Inchon".
