This marked the first Korean production in nearly three decades to receive wide theatrical release in the United States. See more »
A character incorrectly refers to the US Bank building in downtown LA as the "Liberty" Tower, when in fact the Tower is actually known as the Library Tower. The LA Public Library is across the street and gave up the air rights for the Tower to be built (which helped to rebuild the Library after two devastating fires). This was possibly a deliberate error, as the building is occasionally incorrectly referred to as the Liberty Tower (most notably by President George W. Bush identifying it as a possible terrorist target). However, a local resident of Los Angeles would most likely not make this mistake. See more »
This movie serves as a timely warning to anyone who thinks they can both write and direct their own movie. Face it, you can't. Because that way there's nobody around to tell you when you hack great holes in your plot, have meaningless transitions, trite, unmemorable dialog and manage to turn a fairly cool Korean legend into a steaming pile of celluloid turd.
I wanted to like this movie as a trashy popcorn movie, really I did; I like lots of crappy movies. But once I've been forced to ask myself what the hell just happened and WHY, DEAR LORD, WHY? more than a few times, I really can't take it any more.
Also, I would love for someone to explain how LA became Mordor for the last scene.
