A typical Korean romantic comedy/historic,/tragedy with other the top action
29 December 2006 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

In the period from about 1900 to the end of World War II was an interesting era for stories of strong Asian women. Blue Sparrow tells the story of one such woman, Park Kyung-won, one of the first female pilots in Asia and one of the best.

Her life is one of great tragedy and She remains a controversial character in Korean today because she learnt to fly in Japan during the period when Korea was occupied by Japan.

Controversy and tragedy are usually a formula for success in the Korean domestic box office, so we have to look somewhere to understand why this movie was a failure.

While the movie is entertaining enough, it lies more into the realm of modern Korean romantic comedy for most of the movie with the flying scenes feeling a little over the top. Then suddenly throw in a tragic ending.

Certainly it makes stories of Western female aviators rather dull and uninteresting. For someone who didn't know anything about this person, I felt entertained. However for anyone knowing the person the movie would be rather unappealing with the sufficient depth of story to really entertain people.
