March 11, 2012 great action
i love watching period movies. if you you enjoy a full packed action movie, then one is just right for you. its a sorry of siblings who lost their name because of the father being branded as a traitor. grew up with a friends family and eventually the sister is supposed to marry the son of the family's friend until they were invaded.
Sad ending though but overall , super like!

August 14, 2011 Scary
This movie scared me... hahaha. Really!It disturb me that it kept me awake that night i've seen this film. The way it was filmed, you cannot distinguish if it is a real story or just a movie.
If you like a scare, then this movie is for you.

August 14, 2011 What a twist
Lee Jung Jin played a man who has a record of being a sex offender. .. and Km Tae Woo played a father who's little girl suddenly disappeared.
This all started to happen when the family of Lee moved to this small town and the girl just vanished. All fingers are pointing at him up to the extend that people already judged asking the family to leave town. Even the sister who is a teacher is being forced to leave the school.
In the end, the twist is unbelievable. Well done. Sad ending though.

August 14, 2011 True story
I was lost at first. I really did not understand why the Americans started to shoot at them. The call that they received was not translated well, they just started to check on their their and dropping bombs to the civilians.
I was so bothered by this movie. They say that the there was a intel saying that NK are posting as civilians with the people so they started shooting. But when a soldier said "they are clearly civilians", the instructions is still to open fire.
Wow!!! It disturbed me that out of the 500 people, 25 made it back to their hometown alive.

August 14, 2011 Wonferfullly done
This movie shows real love of a son to a mom and a mom to her daughter. Park Hae Il did a wonderful acting job. I so love it. Even the story i think is not ordinary too. Park playing a bum to his mother a never gave her a chance. But upon knowing the real story of her mother's life, how she suffered for him, he protected her from Kim Yoon Jin.
Kim Yoon Jin plays a mom of a sick girl who has a heart problem and the only way to save her is if the heart of Park Hae Il mom be donated to her.
So heartbreaking but touching. Great ending as well.

August 14, 2011 Great acting and good story
Won Bin has grown to be a very good actor. His eyes is so expressive that he doesn't to talk to show the acting. The story has a heart, although its the usual storyline which i have seen several times, this times its different because he was protecting a child.
Love it so much

August 14, 2011 Nice...
While watching this movie, i remember the American series Harper's Island. It is because of the maze underground ground that connects every house in the island.
Great action to both Park and Jung. Unbelievable as Jung had to act as on old man who heads this small town. Again, thrilling and action, all in one. Love it!!

August 14, 2011 SUPERB
It's been a while since i made reviews for yesasia which i considered my home. Anyways, i have seen several Lee Byun Hun movies, but this one is the best for me. I love the action and the thriller. The storyline is also good. I bit gore but the story calls for it.
Anyways, this movie is worth buying and i assure you, you will love watching it over and over again.

November 21, 2010 KUDOS!!!!
WHEN ITS IP MAN,IT MUST BE GOOD.
THE YOUNG IPMAN DID A WONDERFUL YOUNG DONNIE YEN. THE WAY HE ACTED, HIS FACIAL EXPRESSIONS ARE THE SAME. THIS PREQUEL IS SOMETHING THAT YOU SHOULD NOT MISS. YOU WILL UNDERSTAND NOW WHERE HE CAME FROM. HOW HE MARRIED A RICH WIFE BUT LIVE A POOR LIFE WITH HIM. HOW HE BECOME A MASTER OF A DOJU.
ITS MOVIE TO WATCH. WORTH YOUR TIME

November 15, 2010 A bit confusing
At first, will you have a hard time understanding the story....but as the movie progresses, it will show you two different time of two different people. What happened several years ago happened again in the same exact order.
I actually liked the twist of the story... it is only in the end that you will be able to understand the true killer of the film. I give am 8/10.

September 18, 2010 Niceeeee
If its Tony Jaa.. it must be good.
All his action he choreographs and he did it well. Although, the scene when he was captured and he is being punished, i think that is obsessive and not convincing anymore coz, the log that they were using to hurt him, 1 hit and you are truly dead.
But you know, Tony Tony Tony... you are 100% the best Thai action star. From Ongbak1 to 3, he is good.

September 18, 2010 Classic
Louis and Daniel together is already a gone combination. I love the twist in the end.
Loius played a successful stock broker while Daniel played cop. Both are into gun sports. There is nothing extraordinary in terms of story the action is good. ... especially during the armor robbery, did not expect that twist.

September 18, 2010 True story
This film is fantastic from beginning to end.
This is the story of the earthquake that hit China in 1976, magnitude 7.3 i think that killed 250,000 people. The effects during quake is superb and i cried and cried because of the scenes. I so loved it. It's worth buying friends.

September 18, 2010 Hmmmm
I totally agree with the review of the professional reviewer.
Although it is an action movie, there is humor on it because of his desire to catch the criminal, he encountered a lot of obstacle.
Love the movie although the story... hmmmm.

September 18, 2010 Very good
A refined actress and actor indeed. Even if they do a more daring scenes, it is an art unlike in other movies that only shows meat.
Great Film but this remake i different from the 60's movie. I kinda like the old film in terms of story, nonetheless, this movie is worth buying.
Nice house too.
Happy Killers (DVD) (2-Disc) (Korea Version)September 4, 2010 Well....
It's not what i expected. The story is very simple. It's a so-so action-mystery. It will not give a excitement. I suggest you borrow instead of buying
