Storyline

Yong-nam (Jung-suk Jo) was one of the best rock climbers in college but hasn't had much luck elsewhere after graduation. He has failed to get a job for many years and has to rely on his parents just to get by. For his mother's 70th birthday, he insisted on having the party at Dream Garden because his old crush, Eui-ju (Yoon-ah Im) works there. When a disaster strikes, covering an entire district in Seoul with mysterious white gas, he has to use all of his rock climbing skills with the help of Eui-ju to get everyone to safety.

Koreans did it again!!!
27 August 2019 | by hiraishinnojutsuSee all my reviews

Ok, from now on, I would watch every excellent-rated korean movie in theaters just like I have done for years for the hollywood ones, in fact, I found out just recently (and a little bit too late) korean movies filled the mundane western movies with excitement that comes from the details that none of the western directors has ever thought before. 'Exit' is a good example to describe for what I have mentioned. it may not be as masterful as 'Parasite', the previous korean movie I watched in the theater (the first one to be precise, and it was very, very satisfying), but, almost from the beginning to the end, you would hardy catch a breath for the action it provides as the hero and the heroine of the story, hand in hand, struggle to escape (the word that I would use had I been the director instead of 'Exit', it's more fitting to me) the clutch of a sea of lethal artificial gas using the skills the main character gain from a hobby many of his relatives find useless to support him survive living in 21st century (South) Korea. his escaping struggle is kind of like a perfect metaphor for his (and maybe many people in the world) struggle in real world: escaping the crumbling of his life by nonstoppingly seeking jobs in many companies, that they end up rejecting. One thing I like from the metaphored message conveyed in the end of the movie that can and very possible to happen anytime to us in our life: no matter how closed our path is, no matter how pessimistic we are, if we keep struggling, keep moving forward, keep fighting for ourselves (while not forgetting to provide a helping hand to those who really need it), keep opening new doors to new paths, our goals and us will one day cross path. And it's Inevitable.....
