“ I highly highly recommend it to fans of beautiful cinema.
“ The simple life of the villagers, and the life they lead soon starts to lull the protagonists into believing they've been there for years!
“ The natural scenery is quite stunning and the CG, a brilliant sequence with a wild boar and a rain of popcorn, is very well done.
“ Huge Hurrah must go to the film director Park Kwang-hyun for his breathtaking work, as he showed us a decent valiant epic drama which leaves no one bland.
“ This beautiful antiwar film is stunning to look at (hats of to the DP), well acted, and nicely directed.
“ Predictable story, childish lines, uninspired digital effects, boring characters, ridiculous foreign actors and so it goes.
“ Wow was i wrongThis film is politically based but mythically set, get past the war and into the ethos of dongmakgol and you have a far more enjoyable film.
“ A waste of Time..Really. .
“ With their guns empty, the three men follow the girl, Yeo-il, to Dongmakgol.
“ The battle scenes are chaotic, brutal and intense, in the vein of Saving Private Ryan, with strong emotional impact following the humanity seen from everyone.
“ The storyline gradually draws you in, remains unpredictable throughout, and closes with a big finish that works really well in contrast with what's come before.
“The unexpected encounter causes an armed standoff that lasts for several days.
“ The emphasis is on the characters, their unpredictable encounter and the situations that make possible for them to become friends and maybe even companions.
