Jin-hong is a coldhearted prosecutor who's obsessed with catching the man who murdered his mother. He quickly becomes the prime suspect when the deceased woman returns from the grave to avenge her death.
Kim Rae-won plays Seo Jin-hong, a cold-hearted prosecutor who lost his mother (Kim Hae-sook) during a robbery 7 years ago. He has been bent on tracking down the culprit responsible for her death. Now, a series of surreal cases around the world, termed the Resurrected Victims Phenomenon, is seeing victims of unsolved murders returning to life to punish their killers.
RV: Resurrected Victims is a muddled, confused and unnecessarily odd film that picks up and drops plot points quicker than you can keep track off giving it the feel of a much longer film or series edited down into a brisk 90 something minutes.
It's in many ways a bad film while at the same time being in no way a bad film given how fully it embraces the ridiculous set up and convoluted story which feels like an afterthought once the big reveal has been showcased. As it races toward the finish line various elements are brought together but rarely gel in a way that you hope they will. Still, it's inventive and odd enough that you can overlook the issues and just embrace the absurdity of what is clearly intended as a franchise starter.
