Given its aggressiveness in all cinematic matters, My Way manages to color in the personal stakes with enough clarity to keep you caring about the players set loose on its massive canvas.
Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News  full review
 
They should have spent more on the screenplay.
Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic  full review
 
Adolescent boys will savour My Way's bombast and solemnity. Cringing adult audiences will more likely beat a retreat before final call.
Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail  full review
 
"My Way," billed as the most expensive Korean film in history ($25 million) is epic, packed with action - and it's lousy.
G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
An eye-popping, empty-headed World War II epic made in South Korea.
V.A. Musetto, New York Post  full review
 
The bloody chaos can be suitably overwhelming, but you're too aware of the whizzing camerawork, helter-skelter editing and bombastic score.
Nicolas Rapold, New York Times  full review
 
"My Way" is combative to a thematic and stylistic extreme.
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
Marshals an overbearing score, turbulent handheld camerawork, and a punishingly brief average shot duration toward the story of two archnemesis long-distance runners who form an unlikely alliance amid the welter of world war.
Benjamin Mercer, Village Voice  full review
