Goofs

00:16:13 - 00:16:50 -> The band members are supposed to cross from Korea to Japan in the dirty, packed hold of a cargo ship. When they emerge from the boat in Shimonoseki, one can see it is a very modern ferry, complete with fully-enclosed, bright orange modern lifeboats, streamlined design, and all-welded hull and superstructure construction, as opposed to ships of the period, which were riveted.

Even patriotic films can be good
19 September 2017 | by edgy-827-486965See all my reviews

Like "Wolf warriors 2" this movie great not because its patriotic (really I live far away from this countries and I totally don't care), but because its great even its extreme patriotic! Why you can appreciate stupid chapiteau like Spielberg's 1941, with all his anti-jap propaganda, but can't see how serious Battleship island... or why you not crapping on explo like "Son of Saul"? So if you not like this kind of hypocrite - you really can enjoy this film. Its good in action, good in drama, actor play - really great. Hard 10 of 10.
