A very fun ride
8 December 2009 | by (http://sitenoise-atthemovies.blogspot.com/) – See all my reviews

I don't understand why funny, dumb, and unattractive always come as a package in movies. Pretty people can be funny ... and dumb too. But anyway ... this little film is an entertaining ride. It's got funny, dumb, and unattractive people in it along with a giant pig that likes to dine on human beings. It's not a horror movie at all, except in concept. It's a comedy and it is quintessentially Korean. It's cast very well and everyone in it is earnest in their portrayal of absurdities. The cops are macho bumbling idiots, and people, and the pig, fall down a lot. As with most every South Korean film the production values are great but don't go in expecting a lot of good monsterness. The film is more about the people and the community than it is about the boar. The creature alternates between a couple guys in a furry jumpsuit and medium grade CGI but it gets the job done and doesn't look cheap. Chaw doesn't take itself seriously and if you don't, you will enjoy it. It's funny and entertaining.
