“My Way is a lot of war movie. This corny globe-trotting melodrama about a friendship strained by World War II is Kang Je-kyu’s lavish follow-up effort to his domestic hit Tae Guk Gi.”

NEW YORK TIMES

 

“Director Kang is no stranger to big budget action, having ushered in the modern Korean blockbuster with his 1999 film Shiri, and he takes that aptitude to incredible new levels with My Way.”

 

“My Way has some the most beautiful, and most brutal, war recreation footage I’ve ever seen.”
