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. full review

Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News

They should have spent more on the screenplay. full review

Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic

Adolescent boys will savour My Way's bombast and solemnity. Cringing adult audiences will more likely beat a retreat before final call. full review

Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail

"My Way," billed as the most expensive Korean film in history ($25 million) is epic, packed with action - and it's lousy. full review

G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle

An eye-popping, empty-headed World War II epic made in South Korea. full review

V.A. Musetto, New York Post

The bloody chaos can be suitably overwhelming, but you're too aware of the whizzing camerawork, helter-skelter editing and bombastic score. full review

Nicolas Rapold, New York Times

"My Way" is combative to a thematic and stylistic extreme. full review

Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

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. full review
