Tunnel Review: Tension and entertainment both are at the highest peak.
19 May 2017 | by Prashast SinghSee all my reviews

Movie: Tunnel (12)

Rating: 4.5/5

I haven't yet seen this director's previous acclaimed film but this one's poster, title, synopsis and trailer attracted me. And THE TUNNEL turns out to be the best survival film apart from TRAIN TO BUSAN.

THE TUNNEL has a great deal of tension throughout. The film's premise is built very well. You do feel the suspense at right moments. The film delivers well on the technical front. The cinematography captures the splendid visuals very well. There aren't any hiccups throughout the entire film and you feel the character's pain.

Ha Jung Woo is super solid in this film. This is his first film I've seen. Doona Bae and Oh Dal Su give terrific performances. The few action sequences are very well shot.

And yes, this didn't let me move from my seat. I kept on watching and enjoying it till the end. It's a film that can be watched again. Full marks to the director Seong Hun Kim for executing a brilliant survival tale with excellence.

Overall, THE TUNNEL is an excellent film that can be seen multiple times for its cinematic excellence and a hard hitting indirect message to all.
