Korean incomprehensible
26 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

The Korean is incomprehensible. And it isn't because it's in a foreign language, unless scrambled is a new tongue. Out of sequence scenes, twists and quick editing might be all the rage for Indy movies. But at some point it has to make sense or be of some interest. Both would be nice, either would help.

The Korean doesn't make sense and isn't of interest. A film can often challenge a viewer with trying to figure out what is happening, but it is the film maker's responsibility to provide the viewer with a reason to care. I got none of the above.

The acting is flat and emotionless. Did it receive awards? I find that hard to believe. Are film festivals just run by the businesses themselves? How can something this unwatchable be getting rave reviews?

Avoid this movie.
