Overlong, convoluted and poor
12 February 2017 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

Detective Sawamura (an efficient, I-need-a-shower, Shun Oguri) is going through a bad patch: his wife has left him with his son, he more obsessed with his job than his family. And then a serial killer appears: a mysterious person that is offing all the people related with a case where Sawamura's wife was part of. Sawamura will try to catch the killer before he gets to his wife and son.

"Museum" has an interesting enough idea that could have made for a great mystery, but the director and the plot go for the shock and gore, becoming a poor "Seven" in the process. The plot is simple as they come, with little originality or rhythm and the 'bad guy' is simpler still, with no deep or interest. It is your average 'I-have-decided- to-kill-people-just-because' character. The movie does a poor job in making the proceedings or the characters very interesting and the actors struggle with the material.

If "Museum" had gone for mood and atmosphere, with mysteries around every corner, it could have been a great movie. It ends being a cheap action movie, with little to offer to the viewer apart from a dark and gritty world.
