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.

a great war movie - Brotherhood review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Not knowing much about the Korean war I found it very good, as it seemed to show the chaos and absurdity of war, and a lot of incompetence and malice on all sides. I totally got immersed in it, the supension of disbelief held through which is quite rare for me.

An exemplary war film - Brotherhood review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

This is the film Saving Private Ryan tried to be but failed. This gives a view of war where there are no heroes and villains . The battle scenes are grizzly and gruelling but the film is gripping and absorbing.

A welcome break from the tired old world of good versus evil peddled by Hollywood.

Cracking War movie - Brotherhood review by Jim T

Spoiler Alert

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.
