lets see... how can i put all the emotions into this review and yet not make it loose..
i had this movie in my "to watch list" for some time now, before it was officially released and i have to confess it was because of the cast, i mean look at it, we got Jin Goo ( whom i just saw in small roles till now) who got his own colors in read moreacting alongside Kim Mu-Yeol, just another great muscular actor ( he is from my beautiful bride and omg his action and emotional acting was superb), the image itself simply fits the characters.
i have to make it spoiler free so i'm just gonna give u a tiny bit of the storyline, its the type that shows you the hard work that soldiers put into defending their countries, it shows how they rely on each other there and make you realise what true meaning of a comrade is, a nation's battles are not fought by either flawless heroes or by oppressed victims.Rather the film presents a ship's crew that is both a proud and disciplined unit controlled by a hierarchical order of command and a group of individuals with their own ambitions, dreams, fears, friendships, and dislikes.
The combat scenes are presented with a candor and explicitness about what war is really like-- the chaos, the terror, the determination, the failures and bitter costs
i loved this movie because of how real it was, u will not be disappointed.
i've gave it a 9 overall , and i'm a really really picky viewer.
(it was my first review so excuse me if its not that professional~ )
At the start I tough "ok, Lee Hyun Woo is in it, let's watch it."
and at some point bang! I started loving the movie and getting so into it, it was so moving and touching and... I cried so much i just had to drink a bottle of water at the end.
I just love it, still crying, i need water.
loved the movie
the main lead is cute and he looks like park bo gum's twin.
the movie is split into 2 hours, first hour introduction to the characters and background, second hour when everything goes down.
loved the navy and war scenes it was really well done.
overall its a great movie
This was an excellent movie. I am guessing the reason why it isn't rated so highly here is there is NO (as in zero/zilch/nada) romance. Great cinemarography and effects. Realistic battle scenes (not for the squeamish or faint of heart) are depicted. After I watched the movie, I researched the event which was known as the Second Battle of Yeonpeong (the first having been in 1999).
That scene where Kim Moo Yeol's dad hugged his uniform was probably the most heartbreaking scene I've ever seen. I couldn't stop crying long after I finished the film since I kept going back to this scene. It's awful!! T_T
if i were to call crying my eyes out "enjoying" then yes i enjoyed this movie to the fullest
the whole thing was respectable, it must have been hard for them to make a movie adoption of a real disaster that actually took place just 10 years ago..
i liked how we got a glimpse of everybody's life here and there.
acting was good, i could see the friendship between the comrades,
it was beautiful yet painful
if u are into watching war/military movies, u must enjoy this one :)
