4.0 out of 5 stars Definately worth a look 23 Jun 2005
Format:DVD
I have seen other reviews of the film, describing it as unrealistic, melodramtic and not a true biopic of the kokushin karate founder. My view is that they have approached the film from entirely the wrong angle.
Firstly Fighter In the Wind is based on the Manga adaptation that focuses on his legendary status. Choi Baedal is a hero to many and the manga builds upon his heroism. The film is a tribute to his "indominatable spirit", and it attempts to capture the raw emotion of a fighter.The film tries to address this abstract concept rather than present a truly realistic portrayal of Choi Baedal. It is therefore worth remebering that this is a highly entertaining ang gripping movie that wants to play with our emotions, it is not a documentary that seeks to educate us so stoically.
Fighter in the Wind is perhaps one of the most stirring martial arts films I've seen. Allthough it may be seen as melodramatic, I disagree and believe that whoever said this was watching the subtitles rather than paying attention to the splendid performance of the korean and Japanese actors. There is a complex subtlety to the way the chracaters interact with one another,there is relatively little dialogue that helps establish this chracteristion, and more is said about the chracters through facial expression and body language. At times I was incredibly moved by the treatment of Choi Baedal, particularly his early days with the Yakuza and also with his relationships with his former master and his friends Yoko and Chunbae. Simply put, allthough I come from a theatrical experience of drama, I think the quality of acting is superb. There are also interesting dramtic techniques sucha s the us eof radio presenters and newspaper bulletins to provide a chorus to the main drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars incredible 26 Jun 2006
Format:DVD
very loosely based on a true story. the story is roughly this; korean guy goes to japan during WW2 to become a fighter pilot. war ends and so do his dreams of being a pilot. staying in japan he has to deal with racism, yakuzu etc, and getting beaten up constantly. wanting to make something of his life decides to be the best martial artist in japan. so he trains on his own for a year up in the mountains and then challenges everybody in japan to a fight(not at the same time), and wins.

these are actually true events that have been given the cinema makeover. kind of like when they base a film from a book- its not exactly the same so some people take it badly. trust me, the fighting in this film is BONE-CRUNCHING.

i loved this film and its not that far from the truth. it has a story that you can follow and hasn,t been poorly edited like some asian films. i would recommend you buy this dvd but it would do no harm to rent it first. enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT MOVIE 13 Aug 2010
Format:DVD
This is a really great movie. I watched it several times and just loved it. I am studying karate shotokan and I think that this movie is one of the most realistic movies about martial arts. Choi Baidal (Oyama) proved that if you really want to achieve smth in your life you can do it even if your life costs nothing.
Also I would advise to watch Never Back Down and Ip man 1part.
Thanks

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME 3 Jan 2006
Format:DVD
As a martial artist, and a huge fan of martial arts cinema, I can honestly say that this is one of the greatest movies I have ever seen.

Inspiring, deep, visually stunning and with brilliantly choreographed action sequences, this movie is a must-have for anyone with an appreciation for the combative arts.

Do not miss this movie.
