A traumatized young man abducts Korean leaders, believing they're toxic reptilian aliens - a fifth column launching a takeover of beloved Earth. Stumped law enforcement geniuses half-seriously hire a disgraced, disheveled private detective with a long-ago history of super-crime solving. The alienated South Korean youngster Lee Byeong-gu builds an isolated basement command post/torture chamber/film studio to force the awful truth out of the slimy, uncooperative politicians and businesspeople, then alert the public. Byeong-gu is helped by his devoted girlfriend, who buys his theories, but wonders if his horrible childhood has colored his thinking.Written by
As others have mentioned this film is marketed incorrectly. From the cover and the write up (having nothing else to go on), I thought it looked like a comedy. I expected more sci-fi, less sadism. I was thinking something like Brazil, odd, twisted, but not something where I had to close my eyes and/or fast forward through parts. I don't mind a little violence, but this was tasteless and unending!
I did kind of like the ending, but I only got there because I refuse to stop watching films. Otherwise I'd have been out of there after the first 20 minutes.
I wanted to like this film, to recommend it to friends, but I find myself unable to. I want to write a warning on the DVD case for the next deluded person who picks it up at the library and misinterprets the film.
