Action, Archers & Arrows!By Ron666 (18 reviews) , 14 Jun 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]If you are thinking of watching this film you are probably a fan of Asian films like myself. If not be aware this is a Korean movie with subtitles...
There is a nice build up of the story and enough action which builds to a good ending. The clue is in the title and the action comes from archers that could hit a penny at 50 yards and even bend arrows! Korean films of old where never as good as the Hong Kong offerings but this has a high production value and I would say its worth a watch for an Asian action film fan.
Not sure if this film will convert you to Asian cinema but why not give it a try?

Arrows galore better than our own Robin HoodBy Kando (23 reviews) , 22 Oct 2012Action packed with great visuals this is what going to the movies should be all about. I loved it. It also has some ancient history warfare.
Hit the spotBy Pappun (2 reviews) , 03 Oct 2012Very Good Korean film. It can be slow at some times at the beginning of the film, but with a review of the Korean culture during the Manchurian war plus the close combat scenes with arrows makes a good film to watch.
They need to work a little more with the photography like the Chinese films but if they continue this way we will have great movies coming soon.
Stick with it!By a customer , 28 Sep 2012We very nearly gave up on this about fifteen minutes in. After a racy but predictable opener, it lurched into stock characters playing out a rather hackneyed comedy with performances more in keeping with a Carry On film than serious Asian drama. Then it just got confusing: who was who and who, in the end, cared? However, just as my finger hovered over the off switch, it got into gear and was fun all the way after that. I'd say it was worth sticking with. Finally it was exhilarating, surprising and rather moving.
For all Asian film lovers!By Weerusty (2 reviews) , 31 Aug 2012Well what can I say, stick with this through the first half hour and you are rewarded with one of the best Asian films of the past few years. Keeps you enthralled and apart from a minor episode, that I'll not give too much detail of, holds your attention throughout having been well produced and acted. Korean cinema at it's finest. Enjoy!
