Sweeping epic of two brothers caught up in the maelstrom of the Korean War. Through it all, their self sacrifice and brotherly love help each to save the other in turn. Although a Korean film with subtitles, the production values are as good as anything out of Hollywood. The battle scenes are gory to the point of being gruesome, filmed with the "shaky cam" a la Saving Private Ryan, and while one or two sequences would have been quite breathtaking and powerful, by the second hour of watching people get blown to bits and shot through the head you become somewhat numb.
