The Battle at Lake Changjin

The Battle at Lake Changjin ★★½


For its big pretensions, I really think this film deserves more recognition than for its overall quality.
That's probably not a great thing to say, in view of the fact that those same pretensions get out of hand of its makers because when your running time is three hours, you need very good arguments to justify such a length, and unfortunately even with the good action, The Battle at Lake Changjin tests your patience, and it doesn't come out very well for it.

I also didn't understand why its final minutes felt like a trailer more than an actual conclusion.
