Memories of the Sword is a captivating movie that had me from the beginning to the end. Even though it is in Korean the subtitles in English still allowed me to follow the story but feel the essence of the plot. I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys action and a movie that keeps them until the end. Actors include Lee Byung-hun, Jeon Do-yeon and Kim Go-eun. Director Park Heung-sik. It is unrated and is shown in wide-screen.
As the greed and excess of a corrupt Monarchy threaten to destroy the once-glorious Goryeo Dynasty, three legendary warriors lead a revolt to overthrow the empire and save its people.
But what happens when deceit and betrayal have cost the life of a master swordsman? A plot for justice and revenge is set into motion, raging for decades between the two survivors.
From the director of CHILDREN OF HEAVEN and starring Byung-hun Lee (THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD, TERMINATOR GENISYS), MEMORIES OF THE SWORD is an elaborate epic that blends tragic historical drama with thrilling swordplay and martial arts.
