5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting January 9, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Set during the second Manchu invasion of Korea, a lethal archer goes up against the Qing Dynasty to save his younger sister who was dragged away by invaders. Fans of kick-ass archery will be in heaven here. Both the protagonist and the antagonists use bows and arrows almost exclusively. The pacing is very fast, with the entire second half consisting of a footchase/shootout in a forest. Most of the action is grounded and realistic, with a few exceptions. Acting is solid too. Very exciting and totally entertaining.

"You're now Ja-in's father, you must take care of your sister until you die." After getting into an argument with his sisters fiancé Nam-Yi leaves his village before her wedding. When he returns he is told of the attack and kidnapping of his sister and sets out with his bow to get her back and exact revenge. As many of you may know I have never really been a big fan of these epic martial arts type movies. There have been a few I liked but not many. This one may be the best one I have seen since "Hero". This movie grabs you from the opening scene and is action packed and keeps you interested the entire time. The story and action are very well done and there is not a dull moment in this at all. There are some very brutal scenes in this but it's not over the top at all and it helps the story. For fans of this genre this is a must see. For those like me who can go either way this is still a movie that is very much worth watching. Overall, one of the best of this genre I have seen. I give it an A.

5.0 out of 5 stars WAR OF THE ARROWS: A Perfect Cinema Bulls-eye February 23, 2012
Without a doubt, WAR OF THE ARROWS is one of the finest period `actioners' I've seen in years; in fact, the last time I remember being this excited about a period adventure piece was probably CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON. It's technically accomplished on a level with the best films that the cinema has to offer audiences. I understand from some of my reading on the film that WAR made buckets of money at the box office, and it's not hard to see why: it's a rousing adventure - one with multiple heroes waging personal battles against obvious villains - set at a breakneck pace, all coupled with a unique love story between a young couple as well as one between a brother and a sister.

The story begins in the heat of a battle - Manchurian barbarians are raiding a mountain village - where a young boy, Choi Nam-yi (played by Park Hae-il), tries to keep his sister, Choi Ja-in (played by Moon Chae-won) safe from all of the danger. Quickly, they're both rescued by their father, who implores his son to raise his sister as if he were her own daughter, before the elder archer is killed by the forces destroying their home. The siblings flee, and they're soon captured and taken in by a community of men and women. There, they find safety and grow into adults, with Nam-yi becoming a skilled archer and his sister destined to wed Kim Seo-gun (played by Kim Mu-yeol), the son of the group's leader. However, the Manchurian invaders eventually strike again, destroying the city and taking everyone hostage except Nam-yi, who escapes but soon arms himself with his deadly bow to rescue his people from the forces of evil.

WAR OF THE ARROWS is brilliantly structured.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than "The Hunger Games" April 17, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Having seen news reports that interest in archery has dramatically increased since the release of "The Hunger Games," I would suggest that "War Of The Arrows," would start an archery epidemic. Comparing the two films is like arguing that "Dumb and Dumber" is better than "The Godfather." One is simple (not to suggest stupidity) and the other is complex (without being difficult to understand).

If archery is your thing, "The War Of The Arrows" will completely satisfy that hunger. If you want nothing more than a great entertainment, you will not regret the time invested.

5.0 out of 5 stars sudden death from distance, kicking it old-school April 14, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I could go into detail about this choice bit of South Korean cinema. I could mention that WAR OF THE ARROWS, set in the 17th century, prefaces the meat of the story with the King's loyal servant and legendary archer being executed on trumped-up charges, and that the archer's young son and daughter subsequently flee and gain sanctuary with their father's old comrade. Thirteen years would elapse, and, in the home of their father's friend, the son and daughter, Nam-yi and Ja-in, grow into young adults.

Except that, somewhere in the intervening years, Nam-yi (Hae-il Park) had lost his way. A bowman of some skill, Nam-yi nurses a healthy bump of self-preservation. But as the son of a widely labeled traitor, he lives a wasted life, and disillusionment has set in. WAR OF THE ARROWS (Original title: "Choi-jong-byeong-gi Hwal") goes on to chronicle Nam-yi's fight for redemption. But the thing you need to know most is this: WAR OF THE ARROWS lays down some pretty awesome archery-fu.

China's ambitious Qing dynasty and its invasion of Korea's Joseon state fuel Nam-yi's quest for atonement. The brutal attack coincides with the wedding of Nam-yi's sister Ja-in. When Qing troops abduct Ja-in (as well as 500,000 other Korean hostages), Nam-yi, tardy to the scene, embarks on a far-fetched rescue mission, armed only with his father's old bow and a supply of red-fletched arrows.

As the Qing forces and their hostages make their way to Manchuria, and as we track Nam-yi's relentless one-man guerrilla warfare, we're treated to several moments of fiendish marksmanship as the traitor's son takes out one enemy soldier after another. If you dig underdog stories, then you can't help but get jazzed when Nam-yi's exhibition of unfailing aim gradually has a demoralizing effect on the Qing troops.
