What a mess.
12 April 2020 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

Not one single negative review yet so I have the honor to be the first one to write it. It takes a lot for me to write something negative, I'm really not hard to please when it's about movies but here I have difficulties to find something good to write about Kuru (It Comes). I'll just give it three stars for the bloody parts, they were actually not that bad, and also the cinematography which wasn't bad either. But as for the essential, the story, it's just a big mess. It starts intriguing but quickly it goes nowhere. It's just the result of lousy script writing, lazy editing (the movie is way too long with a lot of unnecessary scenes), and the almost normal 'overacting' you get with Asian movies. In the middle of the movie I lost the plot completely, didn't know what the story was about, couldn't follow anymore, and that's just because of the bad script because I was still wide awake and it still had my full attention. I wouldn't say all Asians are bad actors, certainly not, but it's just a fact that there are a lot of 'actors' that just exaggerate every emotion they supposed to have, with the result it looks bad. Overacting is a problem in Asian movies, I really don't get why they still didn't do something about that by now. Anyway, Kuru was a long movie, one hour too long, with a story that I wouldn't get even if I watched it several times, which I won't do by the way (I'm not that masochistic). To me it was a waste of time, still waiting for a Japanese movie that will blow me away, back to Korean movies if i want some good Asian movies.
