War of the Arrows


Dir. Kim Han-min. 2011, 121 mins. Digital projection. With Park Hae-il, Moon Chae-won, Ryoo Seung-ryong. Set during the second Manchu invasion in the 17th century, the best archer in Korea rises against the Qing Dynasty in a quest to save his younger sister, who has been taken hostage by Mongolian invaders. The highest grossing film in Korea in 2011, this historical epic undulates between a tender personal journey and a thrilling propulsive ride through an epochal period of Korean history with exquisite painterly composition and spectacular choreography. “Toplining Park Hae-il (The Host) as an archer whose prowess puts Robin Hood to shame, this rip-roaring yarn has hit the bull’s-eye…it lets fly with a second half of nonstop action and excitement” (Variety).
