Nicolas Rapold New York Times Even the glories of war can turn stultifying when you’re shown one too many thousand-yard-stare reaction shots by military leaders. Jul 28, 2022 Full Review Panos Kotzathanasis HanCinema "Hansan: Rising Dragon" is unashamedly a big-budget, blockbuster type of production, with all the pros and cons of this type of films, but one that definitely deserves a watch for its production values and final battle. Rated: 6 Jan 4, 2023 Full Review Douglas Davidson Elements of Madness ... the way "Hansan" wraps, leaves one feeling a certain sense of satisfaction, as though watching expert chess or poker players who come head-to-head and have it out before you. Rated: 3.5/5 Nov 15, 2022 Full Review Travis Johnson Flicks (AU, NZ, UK) In terms of scope and sweep, the climactic action is the best we’ve seen since Master and Commander: Far Side of the World. Aug 18, 2022 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film For the average viewer there are some awkward lags when nothing much is happening, but in the thick of the action, it’s exciting to watch. Rated: 3/5 Aug 3, 2022 Full Review Avi Offer NYC Movie Guru A long, loud and exhausting video game or amusement park ride. As shallow as a Michael Bay movie.

I will be watching it again...tomorrow Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/20/22 Full Review SANGHYEOK J Perfect cannon sound. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/14/22 Full Review Shin based on true historical story. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/12/22 Full Review Fredric W Excellent action scenes, but difficult to follow complex naval strategies and actual battles. Many characters not introduced clearly, never well developed, understanding relationships dependent on knowledge of Korean history. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/04/22 Full Review Read all reviews
