Critic Reviews for My Way
Kang Je-kyu's big-budgeted WWII melodrama offers up a kitschy, overtly violent tale about two rival marathon runners caught in a continent-hopping battle of blood, guts and bad dialogue.
[Director Kang Je-kyu] engineers one long pummel session of elaborate CGI effects, shaky battle cinematography and trial-by-fire heroics, but the nonstop adversity lacks any real sense of danger. Or, for that matter, emotional punch.
This is big-boned, epic filmmaking of a variety Cecil B. DeMille or D.W. Griffith would appreciate.
The paeans about national pride and brotherhood may be regional, but constant slow-motion battle scenes and squishy sentimentality are strictly wanna-be Tinseltown.
Audience Reviews for My Way
An epic film that is compelling, but thinks far too much of itself! It feels like the filmmakers thought they were making a much more important film than they were. I loved how well orchestrated and shot the action sequences were, but the violence was jarring to the point of headache-inducing. There wasn't much weight to any of the performances either really. The strong points of the film were really just the cinematography, and the production design.
Although very lengthy and extremely graphic, My way will keep you fully engaged and emotionally attached for the duration of the film. A very interesting perspective of World War 2 and an incredible story that brings tears to the eyes and teaches the significance of true brotherhood. Esthetically pleasing and gut wrenching at times, you'll wish My Way could be even longer.
A moving tale of a fateful bond tying two enemies/friends, even if it doesn't exactly match the true story it is based on.
