1. Brotherhood (2005)
South Korea show they can mix it up with the best when it comes to making epic war films. Two brothers are separated in their views on Korean politics and end up facing one another in battle during the Korean war, one of the best.

2. The Front Line (2012)
Based around the last battle of the Korean War. Follows the events of a South Korean platoon and focuses on the differing views of two soldiers in particular. If you enjoy Brotherhood and Assembly this is in the same class. Brotherhood is probably slightly better but not by a lot.

3. Assembly (2008)
Technically this film is about the Chinese civil war, but it does feature the Korean war later on in the movie and it's outstanding, so I've put it in.

4. 71 - Into the Fire (2010)
A historical drama that focuses on a group of 71 students that defend their school against the Communist forces early in the Korean war. If you want lots of action then this is the perfect war film for you, unfortunately it lacks character development, but it's not really that kind of film. It is an epic action movie and it kept me watch the whole way through.

6. MASH (1969)
A black comedy about surgeons working for the U.S Army during the Korean War. I think it's fair to say that this is a product of its time, but also a classic. For me being born in 1990 I didn't enjoy it as much as I had hoped, maybe in 1970 I would have been in a different mindset to understand the context of the humour some more.

11. The Bridges at Toko-Ri (1954)


 



A list of the best (isn't many that have been made) films featuring the Korean war.



(1950 – 1953)
Often refereed to as the 'Forgotten War', the amount of movies made featuring it shows that it has been largely forgotten on the cinema screens as well.


If you're interested in Korean cinema Zenn has made a good list of it's recent successes...

Nice list! I'd suggest to add "Welcome to Dongmakgol"; it's more of a fable than an historical movie, but it deals nicely with this theme in its own way...
