A Rare Dud From Kim Jee-woon. Disappointing & Forgettable.
25 October 2018 | by CinemaClownSee all my reviews

From one of South Korean cinema's most versatile filmmakers, Illang: The Wolf Brigade marks Kim Jee-woon's first stint with sci-fi and while the futuristic setting is interesting, the film doesn't pack a strong enough punch to deliver the quality of storytelling that we have come to expect from the revered filmmaker.

The story of Illang: The Wolf Brigade is set in the near-future where both North & South Korea have decided to re-unify their governments after years of planning but face resistance from a terrorist group. And so to battle this new threat & wipe them from existence, the South Korean police launches a special & deadly unit.

Directed by Kim Jee-woon (A Bittersweet Life, The Good, the Bad, the Weird & I Saw the Devil), Illang: The Wolf Brigade packs some captivating set pieces but the drama fails to leave a lasting impression and doesn't offer anything to invest into. Even the opening prologue fails to create a sense of intrigue like it's supposed to.

Not everything is a disaster though for the action scenes retain a sense of kinetic flair and the dynamic use of camera in those moments infuses energy of its own. But it's all for nothing as we are already detached from all that's unfolding on the screen and the characters involved in that environment. Also, the melodrama only makes its worse.

On an overall scale, Illang: The Wolf Brigade has bits n pieces of brilliance but the material is too weak & uninspiring to sustain the interest and leaves the audience feeling indifferent in the end. The film's vision of the future is a plus but it fails to weave a gripping plot around it. An unexpected dud from Kim Jee-woon, his latest isn't what one expects from a director of his calibre.
