A mix of Saving Private Ryan and Full Metal Jacket, if they were both directed by Jackie Chan or John Woo. The action scenes are so over the top, it’s hard to take the rest seriously.

The plot is mostly based on real events: North Korea sends an hit squad to kill the South Korean president, but they are stopped in time. In retaliation, the South prepares their own hit squad to kill the Kim in charge on the North. By the time they are ready, both Koreas are buddies and the whole thing is called off. They rebel and try to assassinate the South Korean president, which is also stopped.

It seems this also lead to a lawsuit where the families of the random petty criminals recruited into this zany plot were given some money to go away quietly.


This is my place for ramblings about sequences of images that exploit the human visual limitation know as persistence of vision.
