  1. THE APOLL0's rating of the film The Admiral

    Good actors, good historical event, bad direction

  2. HKFanatic's rating of the film The Admiral

    Choi Min-sik of "Oldboy" fame delivers another memorable performance in "Admiral," but there's literally nothing to the film's story outside of military strategy and prepping for the big battle (which does at least impress with its pyrotechnics). Director Kim Han-min has a habit of following the Hollywood playbook to a fault, preventing the film from reaching the lofty heights of, say, John Woo's "Red Cliff" saga.

  3. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Admiral

  6. Michael Harbour's rating of the film The Admiral

    The good stuff: Costumes Architecture and engineering (sets and ships) Tools and props The acting's not bad, but the actors don't have much to work with. The battle was somewhat strategically and tactically interesting, but not very well explained or communicated, so it was difficult to maintain interest. And there was no more audience investment in the stakes than there http://letterboxd.com/mharbour/films/diary/
