Review from the comment
During Ja In's wedding, the Manchu's lay siege slaying many and enslaving her and some of her people. Her brother, Nam Yi, the greatest archer in Korea will stop at nothing to get her back. This movie had some great action sequences, and it is safe to say that the archery sequences won't be duplicated anytime soon. One thing to note, is the similarities to Apocalypto. The movie is heavily influenced by Mel Gibson's 2006 film. It's not a bad thing,but there are times that you can't help but wonder if director Han-min Kim said let's see what I can do with the source material.
