(mx) wrote: a great family drama set in backdrop of the korean civil war of 1950 which forever split the country! at the heart of this film are two brothers forced to fight a war they have no experience for! the Battles are gritty and realistic, in the same style of saving private ryan! the two brothers are brilliantly portrayed by there actors! Through the atrocities they witness the brothers bonds are put to the ultimate test! an absolutely heart wrenching story! loved it!! if you dont mind subtitles or sitting through a two hour plus film! this is foreign cinema at its finest!!

For the mystery part, there are a million twists and turns as the ladies try to figure out which one of them killed Marcel. I lost track of a lot of them and then realized at the end that some of them weren't addressed at all. It's actually a lot of fun to watch. As for the musical part, I actually didn't really need it. The songs were light, and kind of all sounded the same. Also, I'm one for songs in musicals to further something, whether it be the plot, relationship, character development, etc. The songs basically were just stuck in, but it did give the whole thing more theatricality. So, don't go into it with heady expectations or anything, but it's just pure fun.

(kr) wrote: Although it sticks a little to closely to it's "Seven Samurai" model occasionally sacrificing sensible plot developments in the process, this is very enjoyable cheap sci-fi. The Blu-Ray looks wonderful.

(au) wrote: Odd early film from Michael Curtiz about a reporter who is trying to solve the case of the "Moon Killer" and finds his way into a mansion where several scientists (all suspects) are conducting experiments. Well, the idea is clever, and for 1932 it's got some fun moments, mainly from the different types of scientists. The gags are too over the top and dated, but oh well. It's nice to see Fay Wray outside of King Kong. Nothing amazing but it's pretty fun.
