A Week In Film #253: Back to war

71: Into The Fire title screen

포화 속으로 AKA 71: Into The Fire
Another based-on-real-events movie, this time anchored in an incident during the Korean War, when a bunch of student soldiers fighting for the south held off an attack by far superior DRK forces at a school building at P’ohang Dong.

The usual stirring clichés and patriotic archetypes, decently staged battle scenes, just nothing particularly out of the ordinary. Directed and co-written by Lee Jae-Han.
