Critic Reviews for Myeong-ryang (The Admiral)
The sea battles are absolutely epic, more realistic and thrilling than John Woo's 2008 "Red Cliff" or even Peter Weir's 2003 "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World."
The film is already a hit in South Korea, but it lacks the character interest that might make it connect elsewhere.
There's a commanding sense of scale and heft on screen; one achieved without sacrificing coherency or personal stakes.
Audience Reviews for Myeong-ryang (The Admiral)
The Admiral: Roaring Currents rides the tide with Han-min Kim's direction. Sailing in at a solid 2 hours, it is a lengthy ride thanks to its slower pace, but the story does do an even split, with an hour of build up and an hour of naval carnage. While the set up is necessary the character interest isn't that great, leaving the first half a little bland and a bit dramatic. The naval battles have some entertainment value in them. Employed by some CG, which is not bad, the events on the Myeongnyang Strait goes back and forth with intriguing action elements. Min-sik Choi leads like he knows how to do. Seung-ryong Ryu has a devilish persona to him. The rest of the cast falls into battle formation. The Admiral: Roaring Currents stirs up commotion in the waters and is a watchable piece of history.
