The Battle of Jangsari (2019) (BLU-RAY/DVD REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Kyung-Taek Kwak
Starring: Megan Fox, Myung-min Kim, George Eads

At a critical point in the Korean War, a small, inexperienced battalion of student soldiers are tasked with liberating the strategic location of Incheon. With little ammunition, low food supplies and second-hand weapons, the soldiers head for the frontlines of Jangsari beach. Based on the true story of forgotten heroes of the Korean War, can the student soldiers successfully carry out their mission and turn the tide of the war?

I like a good war movie as much as the next guy but I just couldn’t find myself getting into this one. I did try very hard. It is a well-made movie, the cast isn’t the best in all spots, as I feel Megan Fox sticks out very badly here. The plot also has some down points that I feel the movie never really manages to pull its self up from once it hits those. Like I said before, it is a very well made movie and looks very nice in HD, but as all of you know, a movie can’t get by on the nice looks alone. There are a few nice action sequences, we do have some tension, but at the end of this one, it comes across as a whole lot of sizzle with very little steak to go along with it.

I like that this is a movie that puts some focus on some very important things but I’d have liked a little more pop in this one from a storyline side of things. I like Megan Fox (a lot) and I like stuff that George Eads is in usually but I’m thinking this is just a movie that has some spotty storytelling in general and it just can’t seem to get its footing and stay off and running. Some of you might enjoy it, but for myself, it wasn’t what I had hoped for and I’m a guy that grew up really enjoying war movies for the most part.
