I  had a lot of expectations but I was disappointed ... "Steel Rain" takes  a step forward, imagining a scenario where the threat of nuclear war on  the Korean peninsula becomes imminent. Spectators  witness what unfolds after the unnamed North Korean ruler in the film  is overthrown in a coup and an even more belligerent commander takes his  place. The film is a skepticism of the alliance between Korea and the US. which is boring because it even irritates the patriotism that Korea has towards the United States. Conflicts  between parties are also clear: South Korea's conservative regime aims  to proclaim war as the new president-elect strives to prevent the  conflict. Despite  the turbulent international and domestic situations, Uhm and Kwak, who  share the same name, develop a brotherly bond and communicate frankly  for the intentions of each side which gives a dramatic and humanistic  touch to the film which in short is good but expected more emotion.
