Movie Info

Jin-tae (Dong-Kun Jang) has always looked out for his little brother, Jin-seok (Won Bin), even shining shoes to raise funds for his college education. When the Korean War flares up and both brothers are drafted, Jin-tae decides he has to protect his younger sibling. Jin-tae makes a bargain with his commander: He'll take the riskiest missions if it will help shield Jin-seok from battle. In time, Jin-tae becomes a war hero -- with a growing blood lust that shocks his younger brother.

Audience Reviews for Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War

  • Feb 08, 2015
    Definitely one of the best war films I have ever seen and it puts some of Hollywood's efforts to shame. Harrowing, often brutal but with a deep undercurrent of human love for family during times of war. This has to be seen.

    A fabulous tale of family divided by war...so often told but often poorly executed. Here it is a success. The best work is done in between words with an expression or glance.

    The action is probably more intense than Saving Private Ryan and that means something! The story progresses from a slow beginning to an epic finale that might bring some to tears. Well worth watching!

    Let's be real; Saving Private Ryan is a better movie then Tae Guk Gi. This is movie tries too hard to be exactly like Saving Private Ryan- the action, the cinematography, the camera work... But behind all the technicalities comes a very moving and powerful character-driven story that is more riveting then Saving Private Ryan. In comparison to the incredibly gritty "Saving Private Ryan", Tae Guk Gi is more of a blockbuster movie that has more stylized action and drama. Still, this is a must watch.
