Film Review: The Great Battle (2018) by Kim Kwang-sik

One of the bloodiest confrontations in Korean history, the story of the siege of Ansi, where Goguryeo forces held their fortress against 200,000 invading Tang soldiers that raged for eighty-eight days, is a familiar piece of the country’s history. Coming to the screen in a somewhat bloated epic by director Kim Kwang-sik, this new effort arrives on Blu-Ray, DVD and digital by WellGo USA on January 8, 2019.

Stationed along the Korean border, soldier Sa-mul (Nam Joo-hyuk) is chosen to put his courage to the test with a special plot by his commander to assassinate the rogue commander Yang Man-chung stationed at the Ansi fortress. Upon arriving and infiltrating the society of those under his command, he puts his quest on hold in order to help deal with the threat to the fortress by Li Shimin, a ruthless Tang soldier determined to overtake the fortress and kill all those there.
