Trivia

After filming in Seoul, the production crew and the main actors flew to the United States to shoot special effects scenes. The shooting lasted for 40 days in San Francisco. Misunderstandings in interpreting the nuance of a scene or dialogue sometimes arose between the U.S. special effects team and Korean actors due to different cultural backgrounds, but Uhm said, "after the shooting was over, we formed a strong team spirit, as if we battled together in a war."

Chaw is a chore.
5 July 2013 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

I love a bit of word play, especially homophones, and really wanted to write something about how this film was a crushing bore (boar=bore...geddit?); unfortunately, I didn't find it boring per se, just extremely irritating, being full of unlikeable characters and zany (ie. crap) humour, and rarely delivering on its promise of gruelling, gory pig-based horror (don't even get me started on the design and CGI of the pig itself). Never mind, I have a back-up pun prepared for such an emergency: the film is a chore! (Chaw=chore...God, I'm good!).

Yup, it's hard work getting to the good bits in this giant killer pig movie from Korea. The insufferable comedy is easily the film's most annoying aspect, with the unnecessary character development coming a close second (all the more grating since everyone is so unappealing); at over two hours long, it all starts to get rather annoying. Eventually, my patience was rewarded with a fun chase scene and well executed final showdown, the massive porker pursuing the hero and heroine to a disused factory, but boy was it a struggle to get there.
