Unique Take on the Super Hero Theme
15 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the best original super hero movies I have ever seen. Excellent from start to finish. This was made like a Origin story, and the two main roles played their parts to perfection. First you get a bit of a origin on the nemesis of the film. Then you meet Kyu-Nam, the quirky but lovable hero of the film. Kyu-Nam is backed up by his two best friends, and their relationship is incredibly memorable and cute. To me, this felt a bit like the American film Unbreakable. The film had a few minor issues, but they couldn't take away from the charm. Fans of superhero films will love this. Also, other reviews speak of the two main roles having the same powers, but their powers aren't even close to similar. 8/10 stars.
