Movie Info

Two rival marathon runners find their dreams of competing in the Tokyo Olympics fading after World War II breaks out, and they are forced to serve their country. Jun-shik works on a Korean farm owned by Tatsuo's grandfather. An aspiring Olympian, Jun-shik dreams of the day he will win the Tokyo Olympics. But Tatsu, too, aspires to be an Olympic marathon runner, and he's determined that no man will beat him. When the bombs start to fall and both men are drafted into service, Tatsuo becomes the leader of Jun-shik's unit and hatches an ambitious plan to get the upper hand over their enemies. Unfortunately his plot fails, and both men are taken prisoner by the Soviets. Subsequently escaping but torn apart by fate, Tatsuo and Jun-shik later cross paths on the beaches of Normandy, just as the Allies prepare to execute Operation Overlord. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for My Way

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (11)

  • 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.

    Mar 13, 2015 | Full Review…
  • [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.

    Mar 13, 2015 | Full Review…
  • This is big-boned, epic filmmaking of a variety Cecil B. DeMille or D.W. Griffith would appreciate.

    Mar 13, 2015 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • The paeans about national pride and brotherhood may be regional, but constant slow-motion battle scenes and squishy sentimentality are strictly wanna-be Tinseltown.
