A remarkable film
24 February 2018 | by pwfanukSee all my reviews

"Operation Red Sea " is a remarkable film. It describes the war scene by a realistic approach, that many people feel too bloody after watching the movie. However, the modern war is so brutal that it can not escape the fate of the heroic sacrifice even if the cruelty of the war is masked. It is an ordinary person, after all, not a Hollywood superman. It reflects the Chinese national defense concept and the main duties and responsibilities of the military in peacetime now. Some people have questioned that the story of saving a few hostage at the expense of special troops' life is unreasonable, because it's not worth to that! In fact, these fans should not understand the movie. Whether in the movie or in reality, the military will do so. This is not only to safeguard people's lives and property, but also to defend the responsibility and honor of an army.
