Historical drama, War
Numerous thrilling, graphic combat scenes compete with corny directorial touches and sappy choral music (with Andrea Bocelli, yet) in the story of a Korean marathon runner (played by Jang Dong-Gun) and his fierce rival, a marathon-running Japanese army officer (Joe Odagiri) and their incredible WWII experiences – evidently based on a true story. Poor boy Kin Jun-Shik and rich kid Tatsuo Hasegawa begin their strange journey in Japanese-occupied Korea in 1928, and by the time the story finishes in 1948 London, we’ve seen battles and misery from Manchuria to Siberia to Western Russia to Normandy, with the two men swept up in an incredible tide of war and competition. Director Kang Je-Kyu has a real feel for the action scenes, but lays on the sentimental syrup a little too thickly. Screenplay by Kang and Kim Byung-In (144 min.)
Director: Kang Je-kyu
Cast: Jang Dong-gun, Joe Odagiri, Fan Bingbing, Kim Inkwon, Kim Hie-won, Oh Tae-kyung, Kwak Jung-uk and Kim Si-hoo
