Trivia

The English tile is given as 'A Million' and the subtitles regularly refer to the characters competing for one million dollars. The titles however show the number 1,000,000,000 (one thousand million / one billion) and the same number is seen as a banner on the contest website on the director's notebook computer. See more »

Has been done better
26 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay movies like this has been done before but this one is about Koreans being in a survival contest to win a million dollars. Well they didn't know that it's really life or death when the enter. Now the problem about this movie is that you just won't care who lives or who dies cause none of the characters in this is particularly likable. And lot of the decisions they make doesn't make any sense at all. Which really takes away from the psychological aspect of this movie. I can sort of tell what message this movie wanted to show, but as a whole it just didn't work. For a thriller I was never on the edge of my seat and after like 30 or 40 minutes in I was bored with it and just didn't care. If there was a better well crafted psychological tension to this it might have worked. But it turned out to be a predictable and dull survivor movie that really isn't worth the time to watch. Oh and Shin Min-A's acting is overrated or she just wasn't trying. This tries to show the ugliness of humanity but it just wasn't effective.

3.9/10
