Undoubtfuly 'Miracle in Cell No. 7' is trying to be heartwarming and touching drama which sometimes successful to affective audience or even make them cry. It has a mellow storyline about a handicapped father who really love his daughter and willing to do anything to make her happy and safe. In other words, this movie has a clear purpose to build emotional feeling to viewers. Also powerful performances from Ryoo Seung-Ryong and Kal So-Won have supported filmmaker to create that purpose. Unfortunately, the movie suffers with repeatable storyline which would bored some people who has experienced many films. There are many coincidences and some scenes feels dramatized though. Overall, 'Miracle in Cell No. 7' is still fine and acceptable. Lee Hwan-Kyung as director has succeeded combining between comedy and heartfelt drama in a right way. However the movie isn't original and lacks creativity that make some people feel tired seeing it.
