Trivia

This is the first American-South Korean co-production to concern the Korean War since Inchon (1981), which covered the same subject matter. See more »

Goofs

Onscreen text just before the credits tells the audience that "13 days after the successful landing operation of Incheon, on September 15, 1950, the UN Allied Forces reclaimed Seoul." However, the actual Battle of Inchon took place on September 19, 1950, and Seoul was not completely recaptured until September 25, 1950.

This is not entirely correct. UN forces began landing on September 15th. Still 2 days short of of the "13 days" claimed in the onscreen text, but not as off as claimed above. See more »

Ruined by American dubbing
20 January 2017 | by theblacklizardSee all my reviews

Good story portraying the cruelty of this war and Liam Neeson plays his role well but the rest is absolutely ruined by ignorant American dubbing.

The dubbing completely removes the immersion as the director / voice actors show complete ignorance to any Asian culture and the complete inability to pick up on subtleties (A characteristic of American dubbing that is well known to anyone who watches Asian cinema or anime). The result is the terrible voice actors cannot correctly portray any atmosphere.

If you can handle that, or can find the original, subtitled, then the film is worth a watch.
