good netflix movie

Post by Johnnyreb » Mon Dec 10, 2018 4:35 am

Just watched a Chinese movie with English subtitles on Netflix.
Operation Red Sea.

Chinese naval troops in a middle eastern country taking on raghead terrorists. In the big fight, it is 8 Chinese soldiers taking on over 150 bad guys who have MGs, RPGs, and tanks. They kick ass, save hostages, and take their yellow cake uranium away too, but not without cost. Supposed to be based on a true event.

This movies is quality work. It was done as good as any American movie. Good guys, bad guys, moments of courage and desperation... and sniper duels. It even ends with the patriotic burial at sea on a warship with the red flag flapping in the wind.

'Commitment'.

The hero is a North Korean infiltrator assassin. He's a good kid.

I've been exposed to kdrama recently, and some of them are really astonishingly good. My favorite to this point would have to be 'Fight For My Way'.

We can't still make anything that good, sadly.
