“Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War” (2004) movie poster

Intense, brutal, gruesome, gory, uncompromising, and powerful. The war scenes are excellently executed and authentic-feeling, but it is the brotherhood dynamics that make this film special and memorable. It is also interesting to note the symbolism: the two brothers can be seen to represent North Korea and South Korea.
