Movie Description:
Two children Nam-yi and Ja-in are being chased by King Injo's guards and saved by their father Choi Pyeong-ryung, an officer of King Gwanghae and a skilled archer. He sends his own children to find a place of refuge with his best friend Kim Mu-seon. As they escape crying, Ja-in begs her brother to go back to their father but their father is killed in front of Nam-yi. Nam-yi, though bitten by the guard dogs, kills them and escapes with Ja-in. Nam-yi becomes the only family Ja-in has. 13 years later Nam-yi is now a skilled archer and hunter. He learns from Mu-seon's son Seo-goon that he and Ja-in plan to get married, with the approval of Mu-seon who is also Ja-in's godfather. During the wedding, Nam-yi is up in the mountains hunting deer. He hears the rumble of the invading forces. When Nam-yi makes it back to the village, he finds his step-father slaughtered and his sister taken away. Nam-yi then sets out to find the Qing army and take out their army with his bow.

Pure entertainment!

Another exciting action adventure from Korea! The impressive opening scene set the standard for what was to follow.

The action scenes are stunningly fast-paced with nail-biting suspense. The visuals, cinematography and photography are awesome. The film takes us on an action-packed thrill ride that never ceases to amaze. This was pure adrenaline pumping entertainment from beginning to end. Fantastic!

War of the Arrows

This Korean action film is set in the seventeenth century; in the opening scenes brother and sister Nam-yi and Ja-in are forced to flee as their father is killed by forces loyal to the new king after the old one is overthrown. They are then raised by a family friend. Thirteen years pass and Nam-yi becomes a skilled hunter and Ja-in catches the eye of Seo-goon, the son of their protector. Nam-yi is not happy about this so goes hunting with friends on the day of Ja-in's wedding. That day Manchurian invaders sweep into Korea; many people are killed and many others, including Ja-in and Seo-goon are captured and taken back to Manchuria; destined for a life of slavery. Ja-in and his friends then head north hoping to rescue them and bring them home.

If you like action and are looking for something different then this film is definitely worth checking out; many action films are centred on martial arts, swordplay or firearms but this is all about archers. The story is relatively simple with its universal theme of a hero determined to protect his family. Nan-yi is a great protagonist, determined and highly skilled without feeling invulnerable. Ja-in is also a solid character; she may be a captive but she is spirited and fights back. A good action film needs a good villain and Manchurian commander Jyuushinta fills the role perfectly; a man as skilled as Nam-yi. The cast are impressing; most notably Park Hae-il, as Nan-yi; Moon Chae-won as Ja-in; and Ryu Seung-ryong as Jyuushinta. The action is very impressive; very kinetic and realistic rather than the more stylised wuxia action of Chinese films despite the DVD box referring to it as 'Korea's House of Flying Daggers'. The way the archery is portrayed is very impressive; both the way we see the arrows fly and the way Nam-yi and Jyuushinta appear almost like rival snipers. Overall I'd definitely recommend this to fans of gripping action in an historical setting.

These comments are based on watching the film in Korean with English subtitles.


An absolute joy to find a film of such quality that lives up to its own title.

The story? One tribe/clan attacks another, takes prisoners back to their kingdom/empire. It is iconic and for good reason. It is the story of all of us. Everyone one of us, if you go back far enough in time and history, has an ancestor who experienced it.

But one lone man escapes the capture and seeks to rescue his people. This too is a common story. Most recently it formed the basis for Gibson's astonishing Apocalypto 2006.

War of the Arrows takes the tale one step further, doing more for the myth of archery than, frankly, any film I have ever seen, including all the versions of Robin Hood in the west and all the superhero films that use arrows (which oddly is quite a few.) Exhilarating, brilliant, pulse-pounding and with an ending that even Sergio Leone would approve of.

Highly recommended.
