2011 New York Asian Film Festival: Battlefield Heroes (Pyeongyang Seong)

War is a huge mess and this one is beyond fucked up. Surely not all soldiers and generals are those macho-rugged-killing machines or greatness level achievers of a Zhuge Liang kind. Most of them were just some ordinary schmucks who didn’t have any reason to fight in the first place. No guts no glory? Consider this: is it heroic to die in some wretched battleground for nothing?

My Rating: 8/10
