Midnight FM Review: Watch it at any cost!
26 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

Movie: Midnight FM (18): Action/Thriller - Korean

Positives:

  • The biggest strength of MIDNIGHT FM is its watertight, gripping and edge of the seat thrilling, suspenseful screenplay. Tension remains throughout the entire film.
  • Soo Ae's performance is excellent, as is that of Yoo Ji-tae. But it's Ma Dong-seok who steals the show with his innocent and lovable act. The child artist also did a commendable job.
  • The action sequences have been masterfully executed and are a definite treat to watch.
  • The editing is excellent, and the film's grip never loosens.
  • The climax is excellent.


Negatives:

  • Nil.


Repeat value: Yes

MIDNIGHT FM is a mindblowing action thriller which must be seen at any cost!
