A film to make you review your own life...
4 June 2018 | by paulclaassenSee all my reviews

Hmmm, this was interesting on an entertainment, psychological and spiritual level. This is one of those films you're either going to love or hate. I loved it, and the Koreans obviously did, as well, as this film is currently the second highest grossing Korean film in history. I found the story a bit lame comedy-ish at first, but as the film progressed, it became much deeper to the point where it became very emotional. This film will make you dig deep into your inner soul, analyzing your own life in the process. I loved the underlying themes and how the protagonist's life unfolded through back flashes. Blasphemy issues will no doubt be raised by some religious people, but I found it all very relevant.

The visual effects were interesting, as well. Some scenes were very obvious blue screen imagery, while other scenes were absolutely incredible. I really enjoyed the protagonist's brother's back story, who was buried alive (believed to be dead) and then becoming a vengeful spirit. He wrecks the most amazing mayhem during the fantastic climax scene and the visuals here are simply awesome! This is a film I'll watch again and again.
