RU READY was one of many South Korean efforts that had a big budget and a willingness to make a blockbuster, but the result was less than spectacular. The film is a fantasy, but by movie's end it's anybody's guess if what happened actually happened, or if that's the whole point. All the viewers will know is that they could have cared less.
Cardboard characters are pushed through a series of adventures that forces them to relive their dreams and come to terms with their personal demons. Some are more interesting than others, and the special effects are quite well done. Unfortunately the movie lacks focus, and as a result the screen just seems filled with things happening but nothing for the audience to hold onto.
A better script to accompany the excellent visuals and RU READY would have, if you'll pardon the pun, be ready for prime time.
