First off: shitty title, awesome looking movie. From the guy who gave us “Shiri” and “Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War”, comes “My Way”, director Kang Je-Kyu’s first movie in over 7 years. Maybe he spent all that time making this movie, because from the trailer and exhaustive synopsis, “My Way” clearly is taking that whole “epic” tag seriously. Take a look at the U.S. trailer for the film below.
After emerging as bitter rivals and enemies as young marathon runners, Korean native Kim Jun-shik and Japanese aristocrat Tatsuo Hasegawa both find themselves in the Japanese army, fighting the Chinese and Soviets in a bloody battle. Jun-shik is there under duress, while Tatsuo is a powerful colonel. After both are taken prisoner by the Soviets, their mutual hatred and mistrust boils over into a violence that is only stopped by the continuing horror of the war. Forced to fight for the Soviets, the two eventually rely on each other for survival, making it to Germany, where they are in turn separated and forced to fight for the Nazis. They meet again at Normandy Beach, both unlikely survivors, bonded together by history as they struggle to survive one more terrible battle as the Allies arrive on D-Day.
The two and a half hour war epic stars Jang Dong-Gun (“The Warrior’s Way”), Joe Odagiri (“The Warrior and the Wolf”), and Fan Bingbing (“Shaolin”).
CJ Entertainment and PMK*BNC Films will be conscripting audiences in limited theatrical release April 20th, 2012.
