“The film unfolds in several major sequences, all supremely well staged, shot and cut so suspense builds and builds [...] War of the Arrows is a technical triumph as Kim Tae Seong’s photography blends well with the digital artistry while costumes, décor and locations bring ancient history to life.”

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

 

“War of the Arrows is a top notch period action epic [...] It is a fantastic film.”

TWITCH

“It’s not every day that one gets to see a Robin Hood equivalent film that’s grittier and more gripping with plenty of edge of your seat material, and War of the Arrows is that kind of film done to perfection. Highly recommended!”
