One country. One family... divided by war.

Seoul: 1950. Jin-seok (Won Bin) and his older brother Jin-tae (Jang Dong-kun) run through the streets of their hometown, without a care in the world. They have clothes on their backs, food on the table, and a loving family. The brothers live with their mother, their much younger siblings, and Jin-tae's soon-to-be wife Young-shin (Lee Eun-joo).

This tranquil existence is shattered when war breaks out. North Korea has invaded, and the family is forced to abandon their home. While making the way to safer grounds, soldiers arrive and take Jin-seok into custody. All men capable of carrying arms must report for duty; Jin-tae tries to free his brother, but he too is captured and both siblings suddenly find themselves on an army train, heading straight to the war's front line.

With Southern forces failing to hold the Communist North's advance, Jin-tae organises a tight-knit group of conscripts and orchestrates a daring isolated attack. Earning the respect of the men and his superiors, with each increasingly suicidal mission, Jin-tae is promised to be awarded the Medal Of Honour that will enable him to demand Jin-seok be sent home...

Following his enormous breakout success with Shiri, a film that allowed South Korean audiences to approach the subject of their northern neighbour, Kang Je-gyu marshalled the biggest and most expensive project in Korean film history. By turns tragic, hopfeul and yet still horrifying, Brotherhood is a blistering treatment of the Korean War.

Drawing comparisons to Saving Private Ryan due to its de-saturated colour palette, step-printing editing during battle scenes and themes of duty-bound familial honour, the film, showcasing the penultimate performance of outstanding actress Lee Eun-joo who died shortly after production ended, will resonate with viewers all over the world.

Brotherhood is a Korean War film telling the story of two brothers fighting in the Korean civil war in 1950. It is extremely violent and emotionally wrenching in places but very well shot and handled. It has great depth and some exceptional action scenes. A must for any war collector and a must see for everyone else.

This film is one of the best war films ive ever seen the chaos and in parts pure brutallity of the combat scenes really display the true horrors of war and the affect it has on the people caught up in it. The acting is flawless the affects are realistic and fairly gorery in part. The story is belivable and so are the charecters . The film also makes you relise the phycological affects of war on both the troops and the familys. 9/10 If only the west could make war films to this standard.

 One of the worst

 Masterpiece

This has got to be up there with my favourites films of all time. I only watched this recently but it's excellant.

The emorion involved is deep, touching, and just plain brilliant. It starts off well showing the bond of the brothers,a nd over the course of the 2 and a half hours we get to see their topsy turvy relationship, yet there's still love there.

Both forced into war yet their motivation soon switches and they get right into the battles. It's all put together rather well, and you have the story of the family of the brothers in the background too, and you get to see how they're coping.

It's just an excellant movie that needs to be watched. It's got subtitles, so what. Some of the best movies out there are with subtitles.

 AWESOME

This is truly AMAZING. As long as you dont mind subtitles (makes no difference to me) then this film is a must. A true masterpiece. Gut wrenching in both emotional and gory ways. Without a doubt on par, if not better, than Private Ryan and We Were Soldiers. If you like war films, buy it now. Youll love it.
