User Reviews

an amazing plot meets an amazing CGI, Bravo
9 April 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

The cinematography is amaaazing, it is what made me watch the movie in the first place,, but then got to engage with the plot which was tight, organized and well distributed over the whole two hours of fantasy.

The story is just emotional in all levels , the guy has to pass through the 7 judgments to decide whether he's guilty of sins or not,, but over each one of these heartwarming memories they present they add a sprinkle of light comedy ,, this made the movie look even more appealing.

The cast were all perfect,, it's not the first movie i watch for Tae-hyun Cha ,, i saw him before in Hello Ghost and My Sassy Girl , and he was hilarious,, here they tuned down the comedy to make the character look more miserable and "dead" ;D and of course Jung-woo Ha was amazing too.

Final thought,, the movie is really good,, the screenplay is definitely a 10 and the story leads to a "confirmed" sequel probably coming by the end of this year.. so start watching.
