Editorial Reviews

Private Kang (Jang Dong-kun) monitors a stretch of the South Korean coast lined with barbed-wire fencing. Driven by the belief that killing a spy is the highest honor, Kang eagerly awaits a chance to prove his worth as a soldier. One night, he mistakes a promiscuous couple for North Korean spies and shoots without hesitation. Despite receiving honors, he slowly begins to unravel under the grief of his actions. As he loses his grip on reality, tensions and paranoia escalate and further tragedy becomes unavoidable. The Coast Guard won acclaimed director Kim Ki-Duk a FIPRESCI Prize for its strong and innovative depiction of the illusion of power which destroys humanity on both sides of the fence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent drama from Kim Ki-duk July 20, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
The Coast Guard is a fantastic movie about the frailties of the human mind and what damage prejudice and immaturity may wrought. The Coast Guard features young South Korean soldiers near the border to North Korea, tasked with guarding the waters against attack or infiltration. Putting young men, guns and boredom together is a recipe for disaster and it is not long before tragedy strikes and affects both the soldiers and the locals in ways heretofore unimaginable. Kim Ki-duk is known for painting a picture with our weaknesses and petty prejudices and does so here with a deft hand. This is definitely not a war movie or even an action movie- it is a deeply felt drama that delves into the darkest recesses of mankind's psyche. Recommended for any fan of thought-provoking film.

This is one of the worst Korean movies I have ever seen. Most are pretty good or great. Do yourself a favor. Skip this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Depressing April 28, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Thought this was going to be a war style movie from the cover..Guess I was hoping korean war...But this movie is depressing watching the main character go crazy and a local girl. I dont recommend this movie. Wished I could get my money back.
