Taegukgi


<!– @page { size: 8.5in 11in; margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } -It should have been an epic film about the Korean war. Instead it is an epic melodrama. There are good points though.

I know it’s horrific to say that the violence is a plus point, but it is. It is gritty and realistic, more so than most western war films I have seen. This touch of reality based in the generally good battle scenes falls down because of the convoluted main storyline. This ends up turning the whole story into a soap opera.

As the ending approaches any suspension of disbelief you may have had disappears as the film desends into pure farce.

It’s a shame really because it really was a promising first hour.
