Synopsis:
Early, one Sunday morning, in late June of 1950, began a bloody conflict that would tear a people apart. A world, weary from war, looked in on desperation. Thousands were killed or wounded, but the greatest casualty was the unity of a nation. Korea, still haunted by ghosts from a guilty past, remains divided to this day...Told through the eyes of two brothers, who have seen their family torn apart by the Korean war, 'Brotherhood' is an epic and heart-wrenching story, which heralds the triumph of the human spirit in the midst of overwhelming suffering and sacrifice.
Truly epic battle sequences, on the scale of Saving Private Ryan, and cinematography that echoes the brilliance of David Lean and Ridley Scott, all combine to deliver one of the most accomplished, poignant and uncompromising cinematic visions of the year.

Cracking War movie - Brotherhood review by Jim T

Spoiler Alert
10/09/2005

I really enjoyed this story and the action sequences (and there are plenty of them) were of a quality right up there with Saving Private Ryan.

Well worth a watch.
