Yawn... This was abysmal...
4 August 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Yay, another South Korean horror movie that I got the chance to sit down and watch. And anyone whom might be familiar with my track record of movies watched, will know that I am jump at any given chance to watch a movie from the Asian cinema. And South Korean cinema usually put out some rather extraordinary and creepy horror movies.

"The Mimic" (aka "Jang-san-beom"), however, was not one such movie. And that was somewhat of a cold slap to the face. Sure, I had not heard about the movie prior to getting the chance to sit down and watch it today. But I needed no encouragement or persuasion to do so. But of course, not every South Korean horror movie can be a work of pure genius.

The story told in "The Mimic" was unfathomably slow paced and rather unappealing, to be bluntly honest. There was nothing interesting about it and I was quickly losing interest in it. But I managed to endure to the very end, in the hopes that the movie would turn around its slump and become worthwhile. Alas, that did not happen.

The characters portrayed in the movie were one-dimensional cardboard cut-outs that you formed absolutely no bond or relationship to. So whether they died or survived was all the same. Sure, the children actresses were doing their fair share to carry the movie, but it was hardly enough to make it worthwhile.

There was nothing scary about this movie - well, unless you count being utterly mundane as a scary thing. And the story was just not appealing or one that managed to capture my interest.

"The Mimic" was a swing and a miss for director and writer Jung Huh. And this is not a movie that can sustain multiple viewings, because there simply was hardly enough contents to sustain a single viewing, much less anything beyond that.
