It's always been a pleasure of mine to watch Asian movies,even when i was in my
twenties,we used to go see the guy by the name of [Wang Yu],and the performance
we used to get out of those movies,was nothing but spectacular the guy could kick
the snoot out of every guy,[i wonder whatever happen to those movies], now with this
movie,which i've never seen done like this,with Arrows no doubt hence the name,you have
two Dynasties at war,with one man on a mission to stop the other from winning at all cost,
who would sacrifice every last one of his men to get him,
1623.the 15th year of King Gwanghaegun's reign.The King's loyal servant and legendary
archer,General Choi Pyong-ryang is framed for treason and beheaded,but his son and daughter
escape to the home of their father's long-time friend,who raised them for 13 years,so Qing China
carries out a brutal invasion against [Joseon] ,in what will be later know as "second Manchu
invasion of Korea,this movie is spectacular in it's widescreen format in every way,the scenery
and the camera work is really good,
You know sometimes when i watch Asian movies and it seems like it's been some parts left out,
you know like they don't meet or gel together,i wonder if it's because of the way they write,
like strait down and then across,now please Do Not Think I'm Making fun of anyone.that is the
last thing that's on my mind..

Originally called Choi-jong-byeong-gi Hwal ('Arrow the Ultimate weapon') we start this film by seeing a young Nam-Yi seeing his home being attacked as his father has been branded a traitor, as such a claim means that the whole family must die, he orders Nam-Yi to take flight with his young sister Ja-In being chased by some slavering dogs and slavering lackeys to the King. The plot then jumps on thirteen years to 1636. Nam-Yi is now being played by Hae-Il Park ' ('Memories of Murder' and 'The Host'). His sister has fallen in love with their adopted new family's son and they want to marry, and he is none too pleased as the match is unfitting, so he gets drunk and starts a bar brawl.

The wedding goes ahead any way, but just as Ja-In is about to tie the knot a strange rumbling is heard. This heralds the second Manchurian (Qing Dynasty of China)invasion of Korea and they are there for plunder, pillage, and slaves, so not at all welcome wedding guests. Nam-Yi has been trying to emulate his father's skills as a bow man and when he encounters the enemy he lets fly. The Chinese are both impressed and threatened by him and set out to get him at all costs. He meanwhile is following the slave caravan to attempt a rescue. What follows is a full on action film with excellent camera work and a high degree of authenticity in both the sets and the quite stunning period costume and detail.

Also there is an attempt to paint both sides with some honour, so the Chinese are portrayed as a nasty bunch but with some saving graces, though not many. This is loosely based on history but with a lot of poetic licence, but this is a film and not a history lesson.

Beautiful forest scenes, an enchanting story of family/village loyalty. The bow and arrow scenes are realistic; emotions between people are both subtle and bold, especially of enemies and the inability of people in power to back down when challenged by those they have defeated.
