Plot: 1448, Joseon Dynasty – The Ming Dynasty's meddling into Joseon's domestic affairs goes to extremes, as King Sejeong secretly plans to develop the 'Singijeon' (the divine weapon), a super-weapon of insurmountable power. The Ming quickly dispatch assassins to attack the secret construction facility, and in turn, Choi Hae-san, the inventor, sacrifices himself and blows up the site. His daughter, Hong-li (also an engineering genius), by order of the King, is taken into hiding to meet up with a peddler named Sul-ju, the head of a merchant gang, who has clandestine ties with the king's family. She is told to continue her late father's mission to complete construction.

Desperate to understand the facts of 'Singijeon,' the Ming bifurcate its army, sending an envoy to intimidate the king and another envoy to hunt down the slain engineer's daughter and her bandit protector. Will Hong-li fulfill her father's work in the completion of the 'divine weapon'? The most anticipated Korean historic action epic of the year!

Featured reviews for

Divine Weapon, The
Variety, By DEREK ELLEY source: http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117938807.html?categoryid=31&cs=1
«Too much gab during the first 75 minutes dampens the fuse of big-budget costumer "The Divine Weapon" for far too long, though those prepared to stay the course will be rewarded with some rousing widescreen action in the final hour.»
Lunapark6, by luna6 source: http://lunapark6.com/the-divine-weapon.html
«“The Divine Weapon” is the type of movie that if you catch on an airplane or cable television, you’ll find yourself lightly amused as it offers nice diversion from reality. But if you want anything more, you should look elsewhere.»
