Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Given its aggressiveness in all cinematic matters, My Way manages to color in the personal stakes with enough clarity to keep you caring about the players set loose on its massive canvas."
‑ Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
""My Way," billed as the most expensive Korean film in history ($25 million) is epic, packed with action - and it's lousy."
‑ G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle
"Spectacular, thrilling and heartfelt. The best war film since Saving Private Ryan."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"... compromised by a script that relies on melodrama and Hollywood clichs."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
"They should have spent more on the screenplay."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"An eye-popping, empty-headed World War II epic made in South Korea."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"This nightmare just spirals around, epic though it may be."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Many films are saved in the editing room, but how many are ruined there?"
‑ Calum Marsh, Slant Magazine
"Adolescent boys will savour My Way's bombast and solemnity. Cringing adult audiences will more likely beat a retreat before final call."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"The bloody chaos can be suitably overwhelming, but you're too aware of the whizzing camerawork, helter-skelter editing and bombastic score."
‑ Nicolas Rapold, New York Times
"Numerous thrilling, graphic combat scenes compete with corny directorial touches and sappy choral music."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
