Heaven's Soldiers (Korean: 천군, Cheongun) is a 2005 South Korean science fiction action-comedy directed by Min Joon-ki.
The North and South Korean governments have secretly joined forces to create a nuclear warhead. But when the United Nations force the end of the project and demands the surrender of the weapon, the North Korean General Kang steals the bomb. A South Korean commando team is sent to stop him. During the battle, a total of eight soldiers from both sides inadvertently fall into a spatiotemporal rift that transports them to the year 1572, where the Joseon kingdom finds itself beset by invaders.
The following weapons were used in the film Heaven's Soldiers:
Major Park’s sidearm is a Beretta 92SB which is distinguishable by its rounded trigger guard.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
Republic of Korea Army soldiers are armed with some Heckler & Koch MP5A3s during the chase on the river. Sergeant Lee fires one at Jurchen infantrymen.
Heckler & Koch MP5K
Major Park's primary weapon is a MP5K with 15-round magazines.
ROKA soldiers primarily use the M4A1. Sergeant Lee uses it during the final battle and when it runs out of ammo, he uses it with a bayonet as a melee weapon.
M16A2 rifles with old triangle handguards are fired by ROKA soldiers during the chase in modern times.
Norinco Type 56
At the beginning of the movie, Korean People's Army soldiers are seen holding AK-74 rifles, but in a continuity error, they switch for Norinco Type 56s with synthetic furniture. General Kang uses a Type 56-2 at the end of the movie.
At the beginning of the movie, North Korean soldiers are seen holding AK-74 rifles, but in a continuity error, they all become the Norinco Type 56. The rifles are briefly seen.
The movie ends with the beginning of the legendary Battle of Myeongnyang. Japanese sailors are armed with Tanegashima arquebuses.
Heckler & Koch PSG-1
ROKA soldiers use the PSG-1 as their sniper rifle. It is briefly used by General Kang when he tries to kill a Jurchen commander. At the end, Major Park kills almost all the riders with the rifle.
South Korean soldiers are equipped with M67 hand grenades. A soldier throws one at hostile 16th century soldiers.
RGD-5s are the grenades carried by the North Koreans. A Joseon official, who obviously doesn’t know what is it, removes and replaces the pin three times as torture, as he sees the modern soldiers panicking when he does it.
