I am an American living in Korea, and my Korean is not yet to the point where I can actually understand movie dialogue fluently. That being said, regardless of the fact that "Sector 7" was in Korean, without English subtitles, I very much enjoyed the movie! To my understanding, this is the first movie ever made in South Korea for both 3D and iMAX. I saw it in 3D, and the visual effects were incredible. The 3D was very real, and the CG looked true to life.
Many in Korea have already made comparisons of this movie with "Alien" and compared Ji-won Ha's performance to that of Sigourney Weaver. Known as "Ha Ji Won" in Korea, she is very well known for her acting in Korean dramas, but I think this film will definitely take her career to a new level. Her character is very real, goes through the entire emotional roller-coaster throughout the movie, and is strong in moments without dialogue as well.
Koreans should obviously see this, but non-native speakers as well. It's a pure action movie, so it easy to follow along and have a good time.
