Following up John H. Lee’s taut espionage overture with Operation Chromite, Kwak Kyung-taek (Friend) and Kim Tae-hun (Iris 2) arrived this year set upon 2019 to release Battle Of Jangsari, continuing the epic, chapterized saga chronicling the Korean War during the 1950s.
Well Go USA released the feature film in theaters back in October featuring headliners like Kim Myung-min (Detective K), Choi Min-ho of K-pop boy band SHINee, and Megan Fox (Transformers). My review is available by clicking here, while the distro outlet is now setting a digital, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD release for January 28.
At a critical point in the Korean War, a small, inexperienced battalion of student soldiers are tasked with liberating the strategic location of Incheon. With little ammunition, low food supplies and second-hand weapons, the soldiers head for the frontlines of Jangsari beach. Based on the true story of forgotten heroes of the Korean War, can the student soldiers successfully carry out their mission and turn the tide of the war?
