Magnificent Epic that should be nominated for best foreign language film
9 August 2016 | by manojp-18844See all my reviews

I'll keep it short here. This is a magnificent motion picture that is emotionally resonant and powerful. Movie boasts Superb acting, sublime cinematography, haunting music, very impressive CGI and visual effects (specially considering this movie did not had at-least 5% of the budget for a Hollywood blockbuster).

Performances from the entire cast is very convincing and especially Min sik Choi is amazing. The movie also delivers a timely and heartfelt message on humans confrontation of delicate aspects of nature. Filmmakers adds such an emotional arc to the tiger that demands from the audience to root for both sides of the conflict.

Go see this amazing movie and IMHO, should be nominated for best picture Oscar. It is that great.
