In June 2002, while South Korea is caught in a sporting frenzy as the national soccer team plays against Turkey for third place in the 2002 FIFA World Cup, the North Korean navy deploys two of their patrol boats towards the Northern Limit Line, a disputed maritime border near Yeonpyeong Island in the Yellow Sea. While carrying out its usual duties, South Korean patrol boat 357 suddenly finds itself under surprise attack.
Cast & Credits
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 acting 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~ )
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.
