"R. U. Ready" is a Korean adventure film with a big budget. It has some nice visuals but plot wise, it's an inexcusable mess. The characters encounter a series of supernatural situations which are loosely connected to the nightmares of their past. Director Sang-ho Yu conjures some nifty CGI-effects but with no emotional result. I didn't care a bit for the characters since they were even duller than their Hollywood counterparts. They just run from adventure to adventure, each of which makes less sense than the previous. The money-shot-scene with the falling rocks even looks like a car commercial ...
At the end, I was left with nothing. The plot turns out to be every bit as idiotic as I feared throughout the movie. I felt cheated. So much money, so little imagination. So little brain. It's like "The Mummy Returns" dumbed down. Yes, that is possible. Also take away the humor, any sense of adventure, any epic feel ... and you're almost there. My rating
