Jeon Woochi delivers, 16 October 2010
Author: KineticSeoul from United States

This is actually a pretty fun fantasy/adventure movie that is also pretty fast paced. Although it's fast paced, the editing is not very well done and kinda choppy at times. The plot of this revolves around a guy named Jeon Woochi who is a Taoist Wizard, who is also very rebellious and boastful with no humble qualities. Almost the first half of the movie takes place about 500 years ago in Korea but after Jeon Woochi gets locked into a painting by three dumb immortal elders. But gets freed by the elders cause they need Woochi to fight off the goblins and so Woochi ends up in present time in South Korea. While dealing with this, Woochi also has to face off with another villain with wizard like powers who fought Woochi's master in the past. The main villain wants the flute well at least the other half of it which got locked away in the painting along with Woochi. Although for the most part this is a fun ride, the main flaws is how the characters aren't really developed well and the editing just isn't well done like I said before. Oh and the CGI is pretty crappy as well, some done okay though. Also there is hardly any scenes where Woochi actually seemed vulnerable, cause his powers seem infinite as long as he has his talisman papers. It would have been cool if it actually showed the limits to his power. I had a pretty good time watching this and some scenes were really cool. Overall Jeon Woochi delivers.
