Black Eagle movie scene

Jung Ji-hoon (aka

Jung Ji-hoon, aka “Rain,” stars in the 2012 high-flying action-drama film Black Eagle.

In the foreign film, hotshot South Korean Air Force pilot Tae-hun (Rain) is kicked off the military’s top-notch air team and demoted into combat where his brash ways cause tension with the unit’s own ace top gun, the strait-laced Cheol-hui (Yu Jun-sang, In Another Country). Now they must set aside their differences and lead the way to rescue a comrade and prevent war …

Originally entitled Soar into the Sun for its international theatrical release back in August, 2012, which included a small release to theaters in the U.S. Black Eagle plays like a Korean Top Gun, complete with a lot of razzle-dazzle aerial footage.

Korean superstar Rain offers a lot of the appeal here, particularly to younger audiences—back in 2010, he won the “Biggest Badass Award” at the MTV Movie Aqwards for his nasty role in Ninja Assassin.

Presented in Korean with English subtitles or English dubbing, the DVD contains four featurettes, behind-the-scenes footage, outtakes and trailers as bonus features.
