Afterwards, Tae-Hoon is kicked out of the "Black Eagles" and transferred to the 21 combat flight unit, which is led by Dae-Seo. Tae-Hoon begins to rely on Dae-Seo like a real older brother. Meanwhile, Tae-Hoon finds himself at odds with Cheol-Hee, who is rigid, and thought of as the best pilot in the 21 combat flight unit. Tae-Hoon prepares to take on Cheol-Hee in a flight contest. Tae-Hoon asks head of maintenance Se-Young (Shin Se-Kyung) for help. Then, up in the sky in Yeouido, an unidentified fighter plane appears, and Tae-Hoon, Dae-Seo, Yoo-Jin and Seok-Hyun must make a sortie.....

Excalibunny Great soundtrack, CGI and cinematography. Unfortunately the film suffers from a predictable plot and messy directions. Most of the action sequences on the sky are most thrilling to watch. However all the obvious foreshadowing ruined all the surprises of the show. I've watched enough movie to know that no happy couple would announced that they are getting married in the early part of a film is going to have a happy ever after. I knew either Dae Seo or Yoo Jin was going to die later in the story. Plus, when Min Ho gave a cheesy speech to the rookie, saying how his responsibility is to save the pilots, I knew it's gonna happen for real.

Jessie Carmen Woow! that so cool:)

Clarkdale44 WOW, i am impressed... I had to many worries before watching it. I hadn't watched anything like this before in korean. And the result is that i am truly amazed. It was totally worth it. I never got bored throughout the entire movie. It was an very great experience since the beginning scene. Great story, great effects with nice short romance between main leads.

9.8/10(For flawless concept, direction and cinematography.)

CiCI I'm watching this mainly because of Lee Jong Suk since he just gets better and better. Rain is good too. The downside is having to put up with "one expression" (as usual) Shin Se Young. How she gets major parts I'll never understand. She's aways the same...dull. Anyway, it's a pretty good action Kdrama. Rain, stay safe.

Margeret Boring movie.. cheesy melodrama which shouldn't be there at first place. Only fans will love it. Expected better from Korea.

Jesselle so happy to see Rain and Lee Jong Suk together in a film. i once saw an interview of LJS that he was inspired to become an actor after he saw Rain on the drama "Full House".. he said he wanted to be a good actor like Rain... Daebak!!

Francesca Can someone tell me the Title song in this movie and the singer. I really love the song...

junpei mizocendol wanna see the DPRK Air Force takes on the ROK? watch this movie!!!

KimYu AMAZING MOVIE!!!!!! I watched it to see Shin se kyung and rain Kiss... kekekeke now I CAN'T BELIEVE!!! they didn't release the kissing scenes +_+ They were supposed to have TWO!! but not ONE was there! LOL Anyways... I recommend this movie... It was AMAZING!!

Tuete I really did like this movie. Rain was amazing as expected from him. However I still doubt the meaning of this movie. There are still conflicts between the North and South Korea, therefore I think they should have been more careful with the story. Maybe it's because I did watch this movie without subtitles and couldn't understand well. Will watch it again when I find proper subtitles.

hellohnin He is the one who can make a movie during the military service. and also the one who got to undergo service at the military channel as entertainer. moreover, the one who was listed in World's 100 of Influence. Proud of him. and whenever watching his movies, dramas, something stuck in my mind that he is a talented one. I love him since his FULL HOUSE and still supporting for him. Rain ya...Aja Aja!!!! :-):-):-)

Akira Rain doesnt have to have a certain look hes an amazing performer amazing actor, i just love him i pray for your safety, and i guess im going to have to learn korean so i can watch this movie.

Jun-Yeon To Sandy Lee @ Sandy Lee: I don't think it will release in America because it's in Korean not English. In Korea, men have to fill their military duty which takes two years... T_T

Jun-Yeon Oh, I'm speechless. Sandy Lee, unnie/dongsaeng, you took the words out of my mouth. I wish well to both Rain, sexy oppa, and Sandy Lee, unnie/dongsaeng. Always have nice days~~ ^^ Saranghaeyo!

Sandy Lee I really would to see this but I doubt it has beleased. Will it be released in the states. I first discovered Rain in Ninja assasin. ( I can't spell.) He is the most beautiful man inside and out. I don't understand military duty? God bless you Rain in all you dream about. Be safe. Sandylee
