Experience breath-taking action sequences and heart-wrenching performances in this critically acclaimed Korean box-office smash-hit.

In the final decisive battles of The Korean War, the battle-worn armies of North and South Korea face a brutal deadlock on the rugged Aerok Hills. Fears of treachery and collusion with enemy forces trigger an investigation into the men of the South Korean Alligator Company. A veteran intelligence officer accepts the assignment and discovers mysterious and tragic occurrences surrounding a former comrade he had long thought dead.

In the epic battle for survival that follows, the two men become locked in a deadly battle of wills. One will sacrifice his humanity for the sake of his brothers ; the other will discover compassion in the agonies of war. Ultimately, both will be forced to fight side-by-side, so their loved ones can enjoy freedom for just one more day...

Yes another Korean War film about, yes, the Korean War and why not because they do make them so well. This one is about the last battle or properly battles that took place in the dyeing embers of that sad conflict (that is still officially not ended). All hills were strategic and Aerok Hill is one such command and has been taken and lost at least thirty times by Alligator Company of the South Korean Army.

Then their captain winds up dead and it is found that he has been killed by a South Korean bullet, yet he was reported K.I.A (killed in action), so a keen young Lieutenant of the Defence Security Command Kang Eun-Pyo is sent to the Front Line to investigate. On his arrival he finds the place in disarray and the man who has been in leading the men is an old friend Kim Soo-Hyeok (also supposedly K.I.A.) There is also a replacement Commander who from his corpulent appearance, has not spent much of the war on `exercises' unless that was to the kebab shop.

Kang Eun-Pyo starts investigating and starts to uncover small things but is generally met with a wall of silence. At the same time the truce negotiations rumble on but hostilities are not allowed to end - rather like World War I. So the killing continues and boy do we get a lot of that. Not only in battle but in the caves and the activities of some very cruel snipers. Korean films have garnered a reputation for making excellent war films, `Brotherhood', '71, Into The Fire' and `Assembly' and this is another to add to that list of quality if emotional films.

The action is frequent and top notch, it can be fairly bloody too and sometime quite personal. There is as ever a plethora of characters, with the seventeen year old green recruit to the gnarled veteran from the War of Liberation of WW II.

"Assured Band of Brothers Style Drama" is the bold claim on the front cover and unlike most films that make these claims this one actually delivers the goods and only just falls short of the now legendary Band of Brothers.
It's no surprise really that this was South Korea's official entry in the 2012 foreign film category of the Oscars.
The Koreans sure know how to make a good war film,in fact it seems that most non English speaking countries are now leading the way in producing first class war films,leaving Hollywood in its wake.
I usually have a good moan about what's on the disc but not today.There are a mountain of extras to get through on the two discs which equates to good value for money.The only drawback is that there is no dubbed option for people to choose.As I have stated in previous reviews that I prefer to watch foreign films in their original language with subtitles anyway so this didn't bother me(I like to hear an actors tone and infliction).The subtitles are clean,concise and well placed on the screen if a little out in translation at times.

In the waning days of the Korean war both battle worn armies are facing a deadlock on the foreboding Aerok Hills which are continually changing hands amidst brutal fighting.The hills are of vital strategic importance to the upcoming signing of the peace treaty and both sides want the hills.When the South fear their soldiers are colluding with the enemy they send a senior CIC officer up to the front line to investigate.When the CIC officer arrives he is greeted by an old friend he had long thought dead.As the investigation unfolds the collusion is explained and the CIC officer has to re evaluate his ideas of war and of what is right and wrong in wartime.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Rowena Hoseason HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 30 Dec. 2014
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
An extensive, exhaustive (and almost exhausting to watch) war drama, every bit as good as any recent American historical military movie. The Front Line blends a compelling story of personal friendship, tainted by the cruelty and necessities of war, and an overview of the last months of the Korean War before the truce was signed. It's a sweeping bombshell of a production - dramatically dragging the viewer into the visceral misery of continual combat.

It's also probably true that every single aspect of this film has been covered before: the solo, stalking sniper; the incompetent officers sending troops to inevitable obliteration; the fragile camaraderie which can exist between opponents; the utter futility of civil war, of any war... all this has been seen before. But it's carefully crafted in this presentation and incorporates some stunningly powerful performances from key members of the cast, giving all the old messages additional gravitas. For me, it's matter-of-fact brutality easily beats the over-serious sentimentality of most US-made war movies.

Subtitled in English, spoken in Korean. Gruelling, violent and emotionally affecting at times.
8/10

My first Korean made film...ordered on a "whim" as I have run out of other good war movies to watch, and the reviews all looked good.

I have not been disappointed. Excellent acting, good story, fantastic production values...at least equal (and possibly beyond), anything from Holywood.

Even reading the sub-titles did not distract from watching this film...

..if you think you may like it, I am confident you will...buy it and enjoy.

A rare treat to find such a good quality film that I had not even heard of until it came up on my Amazon "suggestion" list. I am now off to buy some more Korean films....
