I'm getting hooked
16 June 2017 | by alci350See all my reviews

I'm getting hooked on the incredibly fresh Korean films on Netflix and after Pandora, this movie has proved to me that Korea knows exactly how to make the most awesome movies. Lucid Dream got me sitting on the edge of my seat from the beginning till the end and I haven't been this satisfied with a thriller in a looong time. It keeps you guessing till the end. Comparing this movie to Inception is just the most retarded thing to do. Other than entering a dream there is no comparison. And if you look at how Hollywood keeps milking the same predictable plots over and over again, its just a disgusting thing to say. I loved Lucid Dream a lot! Keep up the great work Korea, you are on the right track. I hope I can start watching these refreshing Korean movies in European theaters 1 day.
