Rented this DVD last night after hearing many great things about it on these forums. Overall I really enjoyed it. Good story, acting, battle scenes etc but just one thing spoiled it for me. A few of the characters that were in the regiment were almost like comedy characters - lot of pulling stupid faces, clowning around, silly lines etc. Perhaps I am being harsh. Perhaps this is how Korean films are. But at times it was like watching a very serious war film, complete with Piggy from Monkey in it !!
