645 AD. Emperor Taizong invades Goguryeo with his massive Tang army. His initial target is the fortress at Ansi. After defeating a major attack by the Goguryeon army he besieges Ansi. The odds are massively stacked in Taizong's favour: opposing his 200,000-strong army is a mere 5,000 force at Ansi. It is lead by Yang Manchun, a man regarded as a traitor by the Goguryeon leader.

Not Good Enough
13 February 2019 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

The great battle, as the name suggests, is preparing the viewer for an epic battle. And there was one. However, the only thing worth watching was that. The script was lacking everything, from story to emotion. It was like the story line was just a few events that bridged the time between the begining and the battle. The characters were not explored properly either and they were just great warriors defending their ground. The small romance and frienship scenes here and there were not developed either. At least the fighting scenes were good and the battle was cleverly arranged. Plus, the performances were okay.
