2012 Oscar Foreign Language Film Submissions: ‘The Front Line’

2011 Daejong Film Awards – Winners Best Film, Best Cinematography, Best Lighting, Best Production.

First a bit Hamburger Hill, then a small portion Full Metal Jacket. Next, tints from Saving Private Ryan, and after that a pint of Letters from Iwo Jima. There are many good original things in this film, but somehow overshadowed by the ‘look-alike’ elements.

My Rating: 5/10
