as another reviewer has commented, Korea can make an excellent war film both in the battle scenes and credible gripping story well acted. Kind of a home-grown retelling of 'Pork Chop Hill' in the sentiment of a futile target fought over peace negotiations. However, other reviewers have detailed the plot already. Suffice to say that I have seen several Korean films now & not been disappointed. I find I am buying more and more 'foreign' films & subtitles & original dialogue is fine by me as - being a bit deaf- I always use subtitles anyway even with English language films and TV. I have bought Russian, Polish, Danish, French, German, Italian, Finnish, Swedish & Norwegian war films and AMAZON makes a wide choice readily available - both modern and classic titles. KEEP THEM COMING!
