Rip Roaring Korean War Film
1 July 2020 | by omendataSee all my reviews

It has it all - the action , history, the bittersweet sorrows of war and an insight into the North South divide made on a low budget and as only the Koreans can do it with pride, heroic flamboyance and typically didactic eastern storytelling but it did well in imparting how families existed; and still do on both sides of the war and had to fight each other and for what?

It is actually quite an eye opener for westerners, it poses a lot of questions with few answers and although a lot of reviewers will no doubt moan about the propaganda elements, its an action movie with a heart and a pretty good one too compared to most of the low budget awful WWII movies that have come out in the last few years and i thoroughly enjoyed every single minute of the patriotic yeehaa Korean gung-ho patriotic style!!

For a low budget movie they certainly pulled a good movie out of the bag with great cinematography, superb acting with special note going to In-Kwon Kim as the heroic sergeant but really all of the characters were heroes, well developed characters in such a short space of time you actually felt for each and every one which is a rare thing in any movie these days, the action was top notch and the pathos well delivered so there is not much they did not deliver for the budget, even dare I say it Megan Fox put in a good performance too especially given the fact she was ill with gastroentiritis at the time she was filming!

It is not just a war film but it will make you feel and that is important. If a movie can elicit some emotions then its been a good one!
