Terrbily Weak And Awashed In Trite Clichés
12 July 2017 | by denis888See all my reviews

After several South Korean war films like The Front Line - 고지전 - or Taegukgi hwinalrimyeo - 태극기 휘날리며 - I was expecting this war epic drama to be similarly compelling and thrilling. No, even such great Hollywood names as Liam Neeson were unable to save this shambolic mess of all the imaginable clichés from being an utter failure. This film starts very well and shows a group of South Korean spies getting into North Korean Incheon to get hold of secret mibefields maps. Seems good, but very soon the film starts balancing between utter pathetic Hollywood at its worst dialogues from Neeson and his staff and very clichéd action movie shoot-out scenes with all the possible angles and sounds you can expect. Soon, the serious war drama turns into a laughable thriller, and you lose empathy to main heroes very fast. Do not waste time on this - this is worse than any war epic and this contains an array of all the trite banal clichés and moves. Simply awful
