War Of The Arrows

3

A Korean historical epic

Come to this Korean historical epic for comparisons with House Of Flying Daggers, and stay for its fantastic action. War and displacement are the background to a simpler story about an abduction, a rescue and a determined hero (Park Hae-il) who’s one hell of an archer.

Chases and standoffs are built around the weapon’s range and abilities, giving the action a smart, distinctive feel. In other words, it’s badass, our hero facing down a crack squad of trackers and the film itself delivering several surging, fist-in-the-air set-pieces.
