Storyline

1592 - Joseon: In those days, it was common for the rich to hire the poor to do their hard and dangerous mandatory military duties. They were called 'proxy soldiers'. A veteran proxy soldier TOW and his comrades are deployed to the south, where the Japanese has invaded. The King of Joseon has decided to seek asylum in China, and as he flees, he orders his young son -18-year-old Prince GWANGHAE- to take over the country's military command. Vulnerable Gwanghae is devastated, but with Tow's help, he is ready to fight in that harsh reality. Written by Vatay Világi Norbert

Excellent Shakespearan in scope
18 June 2017 | by jamesnadlerSee all my reviews

Reminiscent of Kurosawa, Peckinpah and early Walter Hill, Warriors of the Dawn is very satisfying. Terrific action, lush cinematography and decent archetypal performances. While I did not grasp all the nuances of the Korean history (or the fictional version thereof)the two hours zipped by.
