BFI London Film Festival 2015: ‘Assassination’ brings the Tarantino touch to an important period of South Korean history

11 October 2015 8:50 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Assassination

Written by Choi Dong-hoon and Lee Ki-cheol

Directed by Choi Dong-hoon

South Korea, 2015

Assassination is pure entertainment. Director Choi Dong-hoon pulls together an astonishing group of talent both in front and behind the camera to portray a story close to South Korea’s heart with humour, pathos, gorgeous cinematography and a series of impressively bombastic action scenes to create one of the most exciting adventure films in recent years. Comparisons will and have been made with Quentin Tarantino and his similarly set Inglourious Basterds, but where the American filmmaker’s story veers wildly from historical fact, Choi, while still playing fast and loose with history, keeps as close to at least the essence of the facts as much as he can, as he portrays a very important period in South Korea’s history when the Independence Army fought against the country’s Japanese oppressors at the dawn of the Second World War. »
