Not as good as it could be, not bad either
17 October 2004 | by wiseman-4See all my reviews

I evaluate the film by how the director manages to realize his idea. In this sense 'Windstruck' didn't completely success so after all I was a bit disappointed by Kwak's latest film. This however doesn't mean the movie was that bad. It's really watchable and it's definitely a must-see for those who liked 'My Sassy Girl' no matter what people say, just go and see it, I just did so and I'm happy I did it. As many already noticed 'Windstruck' is a prequel to 'My Sassy Girl' which was definitely the best movie by Kwak Jea-young so far. And it could be a very good film, perhaps not worse than 'My Sassy Girl' itself. However it quite failed to do so and the result wasn't that good as it was supposed to. On the other hand I admit that it's not that easy to create a good prequel to a film of this genre ('romantic comedy') not to mention that it's generally very difficult to create a good film of this genre what Kwak managed to do with 'My Sassy Girl'. One of the problems is the story and characters. Jun Ji-hyun in a role of a policewoman didn't look exactly convincing even though her acting was really good. Also some rather banal and pointless situations typical to silly Hollywood 'romantic comedies' (in fact lots of them) made this film quite a disappointment compared to 'My Sassy Girl'. Although there were really good moments and as I already mention this film is not really bad. It's just not as good as it could be and I'm sure Kwak has made conclusions about his latest work. Of course this doesn't stop him being a great director and I'm sure we'll yet see more great films by him in the future.
