Trivia

After filming in Seoul, the production crew and the main actors flew to the United States to shoot special effects scenes. The shooting lasted for 40 days in San Francisco. Misunderstandings in interpreting the nuance of a scene or dialogue sometimes arose between the U.S. special effects team and Korean actors due to different cultural backgrounds, but Uhm said, "after the shooting was over, we formed a strong team spirit, as if we battled together in a war."

Not one of the best monster movies, but still worth checking out
10 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay so the plot is basically about a huge over-sized boar that is terrorizing and killing the people in the country size, and it has some Korean humor thrown in as well. This is one of those movies that should not be taken seriously and just accept the things that happen in order to enjoy it, the characters in this also act very awkward in certain situations that adds to the humor. As monster movies go this isn't a great movie, but the characters are developed for the most part with there own motives and the slapstick humor actually worked well in this. The special effects are not that good but passable for a B-movie. The character interaction and having more to do with the community than the actual monster itself was a nice change of pace, because for this movie it works without showing too much monster action. Sure there are plenty of better monster movies out there, but this is still worth a look.

6/10
