Critic Reviews for The Battle of Jangsari

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (2)

  • If director Kwak Kyung-Taek and writers Brian Chung and Cory Gustke have a tendency to fall deep into predictability, the battle scenes make up for it...The trench warfare attack, which comes about 30 minutes in, is close-quarters brutal.

  • While on the surface Jangsari is "just another war movie,'' it's important because it recognizes that adolescents can rise to the task when their families and futures are threatened.

    Oct 11, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Much of this non-combat story relies on melodrama, which means we never gain a sense of these characters as actual people.

    Oct 10, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Visceral and sentimental Korean War as fought by Koreans combat film, on an action and production par with a solid Hollywood B-movie.

    Oct 1, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Kwak is a talented veteran auteur. But he has a tendency to go one step too far in depicting the emotions and dramas of his films.
