Fighting demons in two different eras..., 30 December 2011
Author: Paul Magne Haakonsen from Denmark

I came to find "Woochi: The Demon Slayer" by browsing DVDs on Amazon, and I read the reviews for the movie, and it got really high praise, so I decided to give the movie a go; partly because of the praise, but also because I enjoy Asian movies and action movies. And I was hoping that this movie would be in the likes of "Volcano High".

However, I didn't know that about half of the movie would take place in ancient Korea, though it didn't make the movie bad. I had just expected it to be set in the present day, because of the movie cover and all. But having the movie take place in two different eras was entertaining enough, and it did work out well enough.

Now that I have seen it, I feel somewhat disillusioned, because the movie wasn't all that it was hyped up to be with the praises and the comments on the cover; "jaw dropping action" ( and "The no. 1 Asian box office smash hit!". The movie wasn't bad, but with praise like it had received, I had expected a bit more from it.

The story is a combination of action, drama and comedy, and it does work out well enough. And you do get caught up in the storyline, but it is not really one that will stick with you for long after you have ejected the disc from the DVD player.

"Woochi: The Demon Slayer" has really great effects, and there are some interesting scenes. The demons were depicted as a rat and a rabbit in semi-humanoid form, which was sort of strange to see, as that is not how I envision a demon to be, being a Westerner and all, but I suppose it might work out well enough for Korean mythology.

This movie is well worth checking out for the effects alone, but in my honest opinion, then there are better Asian movies available out there of a similar genre.
