A young archer must save his little sister and avenge his demolished village in a war of the arrows, the highest grossing Korean film of 2011!
Set during the second Manchu Invasion of Korea, Nam-yi, a young archer leaves his demolished village in search of his sister, Ja-in and her fiancé who were taken hostage by fearless Manchurian warrior, Jushinta. Nam-yi must face Jushinta and his men to save them, and avenge his village and family.
War of the Arrowswas awarded with a plethora of prizes awarded to great performances by Park Hae-Il (The Host) and Ryoo Seung-ryong (All About My Wife) at the prestigious Grand Bell Awards and Blue Dragon Film Awards in 2011. The film that has been compared to Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto, is a non-stop action-packed epic with incredibly choreographed chase scenes that will absolutely leave you at the edge of your seat.
“Kim Han-min has crafted a consistently engaging action film that follows a simple premise concisely and effectively towards its conclusion. No high-concept thrills, 3D or IMAX here, just solid entertainment that never fails to deliver on its promise.” VCINEMA SHOW
