The great battle, as the name suggests, is preparing the viewer for an epic battle. And there was one. However, the only thing worth watching was that. The script was lacking everything, from story to emotion. It was like the story line was just a few events that bridged the time between the begining and the battle. The characters were not explored properly either and they were just great warriors defending their ground. The small romance and frienship scenes here and there were not developed either. At least the fighting scenes were good and the battle was cleverly arranged. Plus, the performances were okay.

The best Kmovie I've seen so far. The cinematography is excellent, the story engaging... but the main draw for me was and still is the fascinating relationship between General Yang and Sa Mool. Their characters, the way they go from antagonists to close friends over the course of the movie, is the reason why I keep going back and re-watching it over and over again. The chemistry between Jo In Sung and Nam Joo Hyuk is amazing and Nam Joo Hyuk is mesmerizing to watch in his part. No wonder he won so many awards for this movie.

It lacks depth in its story telling and emotions, there seems to be lacking in the movie, its like a food with all ingredients but still taste bland. CG Effects are not that great for a movie. Jo In Sung is great but still Nam Joo Hyuk needs to improve his acting skills, he is not that bad here but his expressions needs a lot of training. Seol Hyun, its my first time seen her act and she was good in here. There were some great moments like almost heart-wrenching but fails for it always felt rushed. Over-all its just a movie to watch if you're bored.
