Nice effort but falls flat when it comes to the story and direction
29 March 2015 | by KineticSeoulSee all my reviews

So this really isn't just a copy of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies although it carries on a similar vibe. And when I say vibe, it's more of a slapstick comedy with Korean humor elements. When it comes to the story, it is actually similar to "On Stranger Tides" where multiple pirates and thieves are after the same thing. So yeah, this movie doesn't bring anything new except it takes place in Korea during Joseon Dynasty. Sure it's a movie that people with low expectations, especially when watched with the whole family can be a alright time. But the movie as a whole, when it comes to the story and direction it falls flat. The whole thing is more illogical then "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies minus the supernatural stuff. The humor falls flat as well, on a plus side it does have few moments when it comes to the silly action scenese. But besides that, everything else just seemed to drag and just wasn't interesting. I am not a big fan of Son Ye-jin but I thought she was pretty good in this one. It wasn't a super impressive role, but she was good. Overall, this is a pretty forgettable movie that isn't really worth the time to watch but isn't awful either.

5.8/10
