Silmido is very interesting war movie, it is set during the cold war and the main plot is about a group of criminals brought together to kill north korean leader, kim il sung

the movie is excellent but there a several violent scenes which include some of these: rape, beating, torture, etc.
it is quite harsh to watch for people who do not like war, violence and these short of stuff

apart from that the movie includes themes like friendship, right and wrong, brotherhood,life and death, nationalism,... very touching plot with twists that i did not expect
