| Breathtaking Battle Scenes
Giving this an '8', although parts of the film were definitely a '10'. Early in the film, I was confused by who was who, and which side was which. Possibly this is not an issue for Korean viewers, as it is part of their history.

Non-Asian speakers have to keep glued to the subtitles, which is not a huge big deal but can occasionally distract you from the characters. Acting is quite good; you really come to have great respect for the defenders of Ansi.

Estimated budget was $15 million; if done in Hollywood, would have been closer to $200 million. Outstanding battle scenes!
