In this list there may be few entries which may not purely belong to the film noir genre , but because of their similar nature couldn't resist including them.
A Second Chance....
This one should work for all who are accustomed to Korean crime dramas. They are often considered to be heavy handed , but to be honest that has almost always worked for me somehow , specially because of the genuine performances by the main characters involved.
The story is simple. Its about an ex gangster who is free from prison after serving ten years. All he wants is a second chance in life. A chance for a little bit of happiness and peace for the ones he loves.
But a constant threat always looms over his family and threatens to awaken the demon inside him.
(Decided to write this short review seeing there was just one other seriously misleading review for this genuinely decent movie)
Kurôzu zero II (2009)
CROWS are back....
THE CROWS are BACK....
And this time they have a common enemy , a rival school plotting to bring them down.
Genji has to bring all gangs of suzuran together, only then he will be truly respected as a leader.
Its great to see the character of Genji mature as he realises beating everyone up alone doesn't make you a leader.
All old characters from the first movie are back , and a bunch of new ones too forming the rival gang.
Action is great.....style is cool....and background music is just perfect.
A good sequel. A great ride. Fans of the first part wont be disappointed looking forward to CROWS ZERO 3 , if it ever happens.
Superman ieotdeon sanai (2008)
More than an ordinary comedy........
i m now a big fan of Korean movies , its only been an year since i started watching them . initially i was only aware of serious Korean movies like OLDBOY , THE HOST ,MEMORIES OF MURDER. then i came across some beautiful romantic movies like THE CLASSIC , MY LITTLE BRIDE and of course MY SASSY GIRL.
Ever since i saw MY SASSY GIRL i have become a big fan of Ji-Hyun Jun, so soon i saw WINDSTRUCK , IL MARE(SIWOREA) and i then came across this movie A MAN WHO WAS SUPERMAN .
i was going to watch this movie solely for the actress ,and i thought this will be just like one of those simple light hearted Korean comedy movies. But soon i found that i was really involved with the story ,the concept is good , the performance by the lead actor Jeong-min Hwang is also very touching . You really try and relate to his character.
The movie though starts of as a light comedy soon turns into something more intense . The movie has a beautiful message that deals with people and what they are doing to their environment ,and also about how people are so afraid to do the right thing. And most importantly it has been presented in a very realistic manner , by not being overly preachy.
The movie reminded me of K PAX and the more recent SEVEN POUNDS because of the human element.if u liked those movies u ll love this too.
This movie is a must watch.
