Critic Reviews for The Great Battle

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

  • What's not to like when there are weapons with such names as malevolent wood, siege tower and wolf teeth striker? When, after an attack is launched, one character matter-of-factly says, "quite intense," audiences will know exactly how he feels.

  • The Great Battle provides action with sprinklings of light-heartedness, but falls short on screenwriting.

  • To my surprise, director Kim Kwang-sik did a clever job of masking his actors' weak points and making the most of their strengths in this action-packed flick.

  • Imagine a film featuring multiple Helm's Deep battles and you've got a good idea what's in store. Any of the action sequences would be the final battle in most war films.

  • ...chugs along like a rollicking hybrid of Seven Samurai, 300 and Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Terrifically enjoyable.
