So the title of this movie is...? The Korean title is "Chawu", but the DVD movie I got from Amazon is titled "Chaw", but the one shown on the cover on IMDb is titled "Chawz".
For a black comedy, then "Chaw" had surprisingly few laughs. There were some here and there, but they were far in between. But that is quite alright, because the movie is quite entertaining and doesn't necessarily rely on the comedy to carry it along.
The story is about a police officer from Seoul who end up in a small rural village, where life is supposed to be quiet and uneventful. But the small idyllic village is terrorized by a marauding boar of gargantuan proportions.
"Chaw" is fun and entertaining, as it has some interesting characters and good dialogue, plus the effects in the movie were actually quite good. Don't expect Hollywood blockbuster effects - but they get the job done, and they do so nicely.
"Chaw" is not groundbreaking in any way, and it is unlikely to make a lasting impression, but still, it is well worth a watch and does provide good entertainment. A good Korean movie in the likes of "Razorback". Hardly worthy of a place alongside "The Host" (the Korean monster movie, not the Meyer's pseudo-teenage Sci-Fi), but still fun enough.
